We can’t get enough of our Roku devices, which let us stream music, movies, and TV shows straight to our televisions.
Users may access their favorite channels, such as Netflix or HBO Go, with only a few clicks (or instructions), or search for specific content based on title, actor, or director. The Roku mobile app, the new voice search, or the remote may all be used to achieve this.
There are constantly new tips and methods to learn to help us become masters of streaming, whether you have a Roku 4 set-top box or a Roku TV.
There are a few secret menu panels that may be accessed via the Roku remote, for example. Users beware: if you’re not cautious when playing about with these secret screens, you can end up messing up the settings and having to factory reset your phone.
Before we get into how to get to these hidden menus, it’s vital to understand the remote’s main buttons. The directional arrows, of course, correlate to the user’s desired movement direction, such as up or down, left or right. The “Home” button, which is positioned on the top left of the remote, is another more visible button. The “Reverse Scan” button, which has the rewind icon, the “Play/Pause” button, which is positioned beneath “OK,” and the “Forward Scan” button, which has the fast forward icon, are all important buttons in these menus.
Here’s how to get to the first screen of the secret menu 1:
Five times on the Home button, three times on the Fast Forward (FF) button, and twice on the Rewind (RW) button.
You may factory reset the server, conduct a USB test, and upgrade the server or software from this menu. Use at your own peril with this one.
