Yes, this. I can access netflix, my connection is fine, I could get into the store earlier today , but now I can't get into the channel store at all. I just received my roku player today, so this is kind of frustrating... not a good first impression.

This is happening here each night, since Wednesday. I can access the Channel Store fine during the day, but if I try at night I get a message saying to check my settings, and each time it shows "Excellent". Netflix streams easily at 4 dots, no problem with the Yule Log or TuneIn or Pandora or any channel, only the Channel Store.

I've tried streaming from Netflix, etc, and then going to the Channel Store, and I still can't access it. Try in the morning or during the day, and I can access the Channel Store easily.

I've tried debugging, and it shows Netflix, etc streaming between 3.5 and 3.8. This happens on both an HD-XR and XDS, newest software. Both are wireless, HDMI connections.

Very odd! Any hints or tricks, other than staying away from the Channel Store in the evening? (Is it scared of the dark?!)

For anyone who has no channel store, but has verified that playback of video is working fine (Netflix, for example), how many channels do you have installed in your lineup?

Also, have you tried power cycling the Roku player?

If all else fails, try a factory reset.

If you've tried all these, PM me your serial number and we can take a look at the data logs to see if there is any indication as to why this is happening.

I've got about 20 channels installed, and rebooting fixed the problem for a while. It's working right now (rebooted an hour ago), but we'll see what's happening later this afternoon. All my other networking/channels are working, no problems. If problems continue, i'll PM you, James.

FYI, we updated the channel store earlier today. For those of you with this problem accessing it, can you power cycle/reboot your Roku player and then try entering the channel store again?

All I see on my Roku is the Settings icon and advertisements

No channels or channel store

roku.com - My account shows player linked.

Network connection: Ethernet
Status: OK

Netflix settings...
Netflix account owner: not registered
menu shows deactivate this player from my netflix account

Player info...
Software: 2.9 - 1509
Hardware: 2050X
...
Roku account: 'This is blank'



Tried the following...

relinking
created new account
reset
reboot
factory reset from menu
deactivated device on netflix.com

Could this be a network issue even if it says good connection to local network and internet?

I bought a Roku XD for my parents and I encountered this problem within minutes of setting it up. I've only added a handful of channels and now the channel store is consistently failing to load (streaming works fine, signal strength is reported as 'excellent') and when it does load I cannot add channels ("Operation not supported at this time").

This is extremely frustrating, and the fact that there are multiple threads about this problem makes me wonder if I made the right choice in purchasing this device. I should not have to do a factory reset on a brand new device, nor should I have to reconfigure my wireless settings when the device clearly has a working internet connection (the few channels I have added work fine).

Why is there nothing on roku.com about this problem? I expected to see a prominent message about the status of these outages or whatever they are, but instead I had to register for this forum and now I guess I'll just sit here and wait and see if anything gets better.

Not a thrilling experience for a first-time Roku buyer.

The channel store is the only Roku function which requires the box to access Roku's own servers - with thousands of new boxes all coming online over XMAS those servers are probably under heavier than normal strain. In most/all cases simply waiting it out is all you need do about this.

Hit home x5, fast forward x3, rewind x2. Then you can change the channel store url.
api.roku.com is the only one I've ever been able to get to work.

Pathetic.
