I see the newest roll out happened. I like the resume or play from the beginning buttons. NOT fond that all the episode preview pictures are gone. But I wanted to thank CR for listening to us. My laptop screen just came back to life so I just now reactivated my account. Also I do love the 'Coming in 5 hours' instead of the generic coming soon that was used. Thank you again.

Okay I still don't see a way to add/remove shows from the queue using Roku only. Need to fix that. I still dislike the Coming Soon for shows updating today. Would it be possible for CR to do something like: Estimated upload time for all methods is 3PM? That way we don't have to keep going out and coming back into CR to see if it has finished uploading. Thank you.

Do you have an older remote without the * (asterisk) button?

If you have it, use that on the episode of the show you want to remove.

If you don't have it, hold down the OK button for several seconds, possibly longer than you think you need to.

A menu will show up to go to the episode list or to remove the show from the queue.

Correct; the older version. Thanks for the explanation! I'll give it a try ASAP.

Well it didn't work after holding the OK button for relatively long times in several different shows. I held the OK button down for at least a minute or two each time. Sucks to be me I guess.

Ok, so if you have an iPhone or Android phone, or a tablet like iPad or Kindle, or other Android, then there are free "official" roku apps you can install that have the asterisk key on them, so you can use one of those instead of your remote. There is also a browser app called REMOKU http://remoku.tv/ that will let you control it that way, too. usually the apps can discover your box by themselves, but sometimes you have to manually put in the IP address, (which you can get by going to Settings -> About)

Okay that worked. But I did notice you can't navigate with the handheld remote and then use the remote app to add to the queue. So somebody like me with badly arthritic hands it's going to be a PITA. But I do thank you for all your help.
