I picked up the Ultra today at BB and can confirm Netflix, Amazon, and FandangoNow all output UHD/HDR. Are there any other apps anyone wants me to check?

So tell me first impressions? Probably using it is similar to the XS but what is better? Do you stream local content (Plex) or only online?


Well I had a hdcp error this morning I had to unplug it and reconnect all the hdmi cables to get it to work, not sure what caused it I hooked it up yesterday with no issues.
It is faster and does not reboot watching sling. VUDU loads really fast also on hdx content, I have it connected via Ethernet. You also get the new Netflix and amazon interface.
I have a NAS but have not used it yet no plex server. Cord cutter news did some tests on this vs the roku 4 and premiere . It was about the same speed as the 4 and slightly faster than the premier. I am going to keep using this daily to make sure it does not have the same issues the original 4 had.

I had to unplug my Sony avr and Sony tv + ultra to get to to work.i removed the hdmi cables also. I never had any issues with my old roku 2XS via hdmi with the same setup. My Sony ave and tv are older models for the mid 2000s.

9512tacoma: Can you tell me if Netflix outputs 24P on movies ? My internal TV Netflix outputs everything at 60P and there is no way to change it. Thanks.

I was so happy without HDR...

I have powered up/down everything and tried different hdmi cables too. The avr seems determined to use 2.2.

I've got a Vizio M70-d3 with the newest firmware from last week. Roku Ultra not letting me enable HDR, even with the Subsampling enabled.
Tried 3 different HDMI cables,
Tried ports 1 and 5.

Any thoughts...?

Any menu options for turning off HDR so you just get 2160p feeds?

I don't think there is anything wrong with the roku. When I hook it up directly to the TV I can see everything is working fine. The problem occurs only when the avr is in the loop.

Hey guys - didn't know the Ultra was out yet. I just ordered online for in-store pickup. I'll grab it tonight if I have a chance and once I have it I'll check to see if Netflix does HDR and at 24hz. If not then I'll likely be returning it and will just use my Panasonic UB900 UHD player for Netflix, tho I think that doesn't support HDR. Speaking of which - are all 4K shows in HDR or only select ones (and if only select ones does Netflix mark which are which)?

Only select shows are in HDR. Vudu will have a huge library of HDR10 movies once they release them as announced.

Are you saying no HR10 or no Dolby Vision if you have a set capable of DV. Vudu isn't yet offering HR10, only DV.

Does it indicate which 4K shows are in HDR and which are not?

Regarding Vudo - if I have UV codes from physical media UHD purchases can I play these back through Vudo (so I don't have to get up and change discs)? If doing that can I still get Atmos. If not, forget that idea (and in which case is DD+ still their "best" quality sound). Tho I would still get the Roku Ultra and see about the 24hz support for Netflix.

For anyone who buys the Roku Ultra from Walmart, you get 2 free months of Sling TV and 3 Vudu movies.

It depends on the app as to how HDR is indicated. Amazon and Netflix show HDR, whereas FandangoNow doesn't.

I'm not sure on Atmos with streaming.

As I mentioned above I can't get HDR to work with my Vizio m70-d3, however in 4k mode, netflix is at 60hz on the roku ultra, and I see no way to make it 24hz. Using other devices 24hz 4k on netflix is fine.

I would be interested in knowing if you can put a Atmos movies (mkv) on a hard drive connected to the USB port on the Ultra and play them.
This would solve a short term problem for me until I can stream Atmos from a server.

Just picked Roku ultra today. Can anyone please assist me with setup? I have a Samsung Hu8550 w/ Sek 3500 that is hdr capable. The hdr badge shows fine on Netflix but the shows look very dark and it looks kind of washed out. Gamma is set to the max, Smart led is set to high, dynamic contrast is on, backlight is on 20 and hdmi cables are the latest specs. Any suggestions to make this look brighter?

Does the Ultra play Netflix and Vudu HDX @ 1080/24p and 4K/24p or are we stuck with 60hz?

Also, can one select just 4K without HDR and still have WCG or will it be BT709?

That's bad news. Movies should be 24Hz, otherwise will look like a soap opera. My Oppo 103 sends 24 frames but is only 1080P. Internal app from my Samsung TV also sends 60 Hz . Which other devices you have that outputs Netflix 4K at 24 Hz ?

I was so happy without HDR...

I have been using the Roku Ultra for the past few hours and so far no HDR on Vudu, Amazon or Netflix I do get 4k at 60hz no 24p that I have seen. The ultra scales everything to 4K:60Hz. Audio output has been Dolby Digital + only. So far it's no better than my Roku 4. I think it's going back to Walmart. sometime this week.

The Roku 4 had two 4K output settings; "4K" and "4K 10-bit". Netflix would only be in 24p if 4K 10-bit was selected.

Does the new Roku have a setting for 10-bit output?
