Thread: Roku fixes

    Roku fixes

    Could we please tie-in the new queue system into the Roku app? There is a "Queue" box at the bottom but it does not currently link to my personal queue nor does it appear to have any functionality currently.
    Also, Can we please have the shows separated by seasons so that episodes >50 (Fairy Tail!) can be viewable.
    thanks very much

    Both of these are bugs. Queue is a known issue. Please check the Known Issues list on the Support page. www.funimation.com/support. As for your second suggestion, not done how you suggested, but still accomplishes what you wanted: The limiter has been raised to 175, so now you can get to episodes beyond episode 50!

    I support anything to make the Roku app better. It's alot easier to SHARE different shows with people on the TV than it is with a Laptop.

    BUMP for ETA on fix....the lack of this feature kills the usability.

    A sort-of workaround is to exploit Roku's Resume feature to tag episodes you've recently watched.

    1. When playback approaches the end of an episode, don't let it play through to the end. Interrupt playback by pressing the up-arrow, which takes you to the episode's menu. A Resume option will be added to the menu for that episode. (If you accidentally let the episode finish playing, you can add the Resume tag by starting it and interrupting it after playback begins.)

    2. Later, when you want to find the next unwatched episode of that series, select any episode you think you recently watched. If the episode's menu has a Resume option, then you've watched it. Don't select "Choose a different Video" on the menu; it's better to use the left-arrow and right-arrow to go directly to adjacent episodes. Press the left-arrow and right-arrow until you locate the first episode that doesn't have a Resume option on the menu; that'll be the next one you haven't watched.

    It's a bit cumbersome, but you can use this trick on any Roku channel that supports Resume even if it doesn't have a queue.

    No ETA as of yet.

    I realize there is "no ETA" and this is a "known problem".
    However, it is now 6 months later. Are these just euphemisms for "will not fix"?
    Is Roku support just a checkbox ignored once it barely works?
    Funimation is charging as much as Netflix or Crunchyroll, but providing a vastly inferior Roku experience.

    Maybe they are making enough money not to care? App development isn't that hard folks, people do it every day.
