• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Just as another data point, I installed the RR app on a Roku Ultra and it is not happy.
(looks like the app was developed by a 3rd party and not an official RR project.)
I don't have any suggestions, though. :-(

Hi under what heading do you find the RR app on your ROKU? Thanks

Well, I successfully added Radio Reference to my Roku. This used to be carried by "Nowhere Man." However, he left some time ago. I remember another Roku hidden channel he had, but it was associated with Traffic Cams. It was very nice since you could watch video feeds from live cameras along the highway here in Texas.

I will report what I see when twenty-four hours have passed since it sometimes takes that amount of time for it to show up. Now, like with PornHub, you add it from the Roku home page. Various free pornography was also removed when net neutrality surfaced. I don't know if this was related to one another. I am only using PornHub as an example since it is the only channel I have added from the Roku online site.

Woops, there it is on the screen. I now have added Radio Reference to my Roku, but it is buffering. I am not surprised that it does not work given the operatives involved. I just activated a "near me" search and nothing happened. What a joke! I have a very high speed internet. Nothing ever buffers! Oh, this is rich!

Post 4: I would imagine this lists the same things on Broadcastify. In essence, my PornHub works well, Radio Reference does not. I can sit here in my chair and listen to my 436HP and hear it come over the television at the same time. How novel! I am jumping for joy!

I get this warning trying to add the RR app. Curious.

"THIS IS A NON-CERTIFIED CHANNEL. Roku requires all channels to abide by Roku’s terms and conditions, and to distribute only legal content. Roku does not test or review non-certified channels. You acknowledge you are accessing a non-certified channel that may include content that is offensive or inappropriate for some audiences. Moreover, if Roku determines that this channel violates copyright, contains illegal content, or otherwise violates Roku’s terms and conditions, then ROKU MAY REMOVE THIS CHANNEL WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE, AND YOUR ACCOUNT MAY BE BLOCKED FROM ADDING ANY OTHER NON-CERTIFIED CHANNELS."

I am not adding it.

Same story here, RR worked fine on Roku til about a week ago. I did go ahead and add the channel again and hopefully that doesn't lead to problems with my Roku account. Apparently the add takes a day or two to become active.

Thanks for the link, now if I can just get passed the Buffering I will see how it works!
My speed isn't an issue, I don't think.
You're welcome. I get the buffering too as do others. I didn't know about the app until I saw this post so it never worked for me.

As opposed to finding this channel on the Roku platform, this Roku channel is offered on their home page. Yes, I am well aware of unauthorized Roku channels since a guide for such still exists. I have never encountered a rogue Roku channel from the home page of Roku. However, this little boy does not work. I have tried several of the feeds, but they tend to a) buffer until time ends; or b) don't work at all. I will be removing this channel now.

Heh, I've never had an issue with it. I haven't used it lately though.
