We live in San Diego, CA for a number of reasons. One of these should be that we love not having to shovel snow for 6 months of the year. Our weather also allows us to enjoy our outdoor spaces more than friends in, let’s say Nunavut, Canada where it averages -3.5 F year-round. At Aire Theater Designs, we love celebrating the outdoors with great sound! Here’s our take on the best outdoor speakers in 2021 under $1000/pair.

During Covid, we had some spare time so we said, “Let’s line up a bunch of our outdoor speakers, critically listen and report our findings. Our entrants were:

Many of our clients love TV…I love TV. However, some people don’t like the look of a TV on the wall and would rather have a picture in its place. Samsung has created a solution that fills BOTH roles (cue anticipatory music). For today’s “Project of the Day”, we helped our client add television to 2 areas along with sound solutions for both music and movies/TV.

Spectrum app stop working? If you have a Roku, here's what's happening

 

Did your Spectrum app just stop working on your Roku device? Read on…This year, Roku and Spectrum sat down to the bargaining table to make a deal  (I am making this up so this may not be a factual account and there may not in fact, be an actual bargaining table). The deal had to do with the Spectrum app and if it would continue to work on Roku devices.

 

Apparently the chief negotiator for one or both parties was out sick as they couldn’t come to a deal and now the Spectrum app no longer works on Roku devices. Oh NO! What’s a cord-cutter to do?

 

  • Wait: This happened a little while ago with a service called HBO Max. It stopped working on Roku for about a week and then “the deal got made” and it returned. Maybe this will happen. If not:
  • Add an AppleTV: Apple TV streaming devices and Roku play nicely together. In fact, Spectrum is now giving some clients an AppleTV instead of a cable box now so they may know something we don’t.

AppleTV

 

Do we hate Spectrum or Roku here? I don’t know for sure but my money is on Roku. If you’ve been using Roku to watch the Spectrum app, sending some complaints their way can’t hurt. In fact, it might cause the Spectrum app to magically show up again.

 

Got questions about how to proceed? AppleTV vs Roku? Roku vs AppleTV? Give us a call and let our San Diego technology experts help you to watch streaming TV again!
