Weird Messages on a Roku Streaming Media Player - Amazing Discoveries TV

Here's something odd for you. I have recently added ROKU to my televisions around the house and done away with Dish. While watching a documentary about the Freemasons on Amazing Discoveries TV, I hit the pause button and went back to catch something they said. When I did, yellow text appeared at the bottom of the screen. By playing forward again, the yellow text continued. The text was describing how DNA is almost ready to be digitized like computer code. The text message ends with the hope that "We" are very close to achieving our goals of streaming biological material and matter from a computer using viruses as a medium. "Growing life" was the main topic. If I restart the program, I can only get the repeating text back by hitting pause and going back. The text called our reality a digital reality.

My question is this: Can someone please verify this with their own ROKU and tell me if I am stumbling on to something that was not meant to be seen?

As an added bonus, my other Roku boxes are all different than this one. They will not show the hidden messages. This one will. I think it may because this box has been so glitchy. Another odd thing. If the ROKU goes into screen saver mode, the message goes away. I assume it's some type of CC text being laid over the programming. I would say there is a glitch in my box and it is revealing an underlying stream of information that can only be seen by some viewers. The box that works is a ROKU XD.

Here is a screen shot:

How long is the message, were you able to write it all down?

Here is the main body of the message. It's now playing again on another program. Anyone know why this randomly appearing on this channel when I hit pause? Can anyone duplicate this?

"You know, I've talked about some of these projects before, about the human genome and what that might mean, and discovering new sets of genes. We're actually starting at a new point: We've been digitizing biology, and now we're trying to go from that digital code into a new phase of biology, with digitizing and synthesizing life. So, we've always been trying to ask big questions. "What is life?" is something that I think many biologists have been trying to understand at various levels. We've tried various approaches, pairing it down to minimal components. We've been digitizing it now for almost 20 years. When we sequence the human genome, it was going from the analog world of biology into a digital world of the computer. Now we're trying to ask, can we regenerate life, or can we create new life, out of this digital universe?

Where are you streaming the content from and what is the title of the show Enoch? As I understand it, ROKU is simply a player that can stream video from other sources.

This thread is very, very important.

Or not.

I'm going with NOT.

It continues:

"This is the map of a small organism, Mycoplasma genitalium, that has the smallest genome for a species that can self-replicate in the laboratory. And we've been trying to just see if we can come up with an even smaller genome. We're able to knock out on the order of a hundred genes out of the 500 or so that are here. But when we look at its metabolic map, it's relatively simple compared to ours. Trust me, this is simple. But when we look at all the genes that we can knock out one at a time, it's very unlikely that this would yield a living cell. So, we decided the only way forward was to actually synthesize this chromosome so we could vary the components to ask some of these most fundamental questions. And so we started down the road of, "Can we synthesize a chromosome?"

It's a channel called Amazing Discoveries TV. Roku has the ability to add channels. This one has a message that appears if you pause, then go back and replay from pause. My other roku boxes won't do this. For some reason, this one does. I wouldn't have posted this, but the fact that I can stream the program, free from text, and then pause it and reveal text is interesting. I mainly want to see if anyone can duplicate this.

I don't believe I've personally encountered line 21 decoders that use yellow subtitling. All the ones that I remember are the white text over black boxes.

That said, I'm not familiar with ROKU, so perhaps that's how it displays CC data?

Edit: Yeah, it's most definitely the newer standard. (I'm old-school, and haven't played with line 21 since broadcast moved digital…)

I found it! You are seeing the closed captions for "On the Verge of Creating Synthetic Life" by Craig Venter.

On the Verge of Creating Synthetic Life

It seems to be a problem with the wrong CC for the show you are watching.

I did a test. I stopped the channel and then initiated it again. I watched for a few minutes and found no message. When I hit pause and play, nothing. I got the message to reappear again. This time, if I don't pause between sentences, it goes away. Hitting pause reveals the sentence.

Continued:

"Can chemistry permit making these really large molecules where we've never been before? And, if we do, can we boot up a chromosome? A chromosome, by the way, is just a piece of inert chemical material....(missed some)...at an exponential pace. Our ability to write the genetic code"

It's breaking up at this point. I'll try later. The pause button seems to be the trigger to turning on the text. To me, this looks like a glitch on my box.

That's cool. I was thinking something was really off here or I was reading some type of hidden text. I wonder why my pause button initiates this?

I actually watched this the other day on my ROKU in the other room on the TED channel. I thought it was familiar. The odd thing is, I was only getting bits and pieces by hitting pause. I think it's outstanding that you were able to find the text. I did a search in quotes for bits, but couldn't find it.

Great job.

The ROKU is amazing. I replaced my Dish bill of $75 a month and now pay $7 each for Hulu, Netflix and Amazon. I also purchased an antenna for networks and a HDHOMERUN box to stream channels to devices. I should save $800 this year and more next year. I am happier with this setup than I was with DISH. I can DVR from a laptop on windows media.

Go into your Roku settings and disable closed captioning (it is probably only enabled for that one box). There is probably a glitch in the closed captioning code that is referring all closed captioning to the text of a single episode on that channel..

Those Seventh Day Adventists know quite a bit of stuff about Freemasons. You should look up Walter Veith's Amazing Discovery Total Onslught videos on Youtube.

I didn't realize this when I signed up for Amazon Prime a year ago but if you pay the yearly fee you can watch all the Prime shows and movies for free on some devices (Roku I think, but PS3 for me). Of course the free shows aren't the latest/greatest, but they are free.

I hear the Freemasons know quite a bit of stuff about the Freemasons, but nobody seems to listen to it.

That's weird because I came to a conclusion today after seeing a thread on here saying the hubble observed a spiral helix galaxy that is 10 billion years old which made me conclude that DNA is created as a whole by galaxy which in turn are just as small as they are big! Life is infinite, just like atomic material and the universe we live in, it is living organic matter that has a digital user interface!
