I tried everything Roku and Hulu advised to resolve the issue and continued to have issues with unresponsiveness and crashing.
I ended up purchasing a refurbished Roku 2. All of the issues cleared up and the box is noticeably snappier. Two months down and Hulu has yet to crash the box.
My advice: get a Roku 2. It's just too bad Roku doesn't acknowledge the issues and offer a trade-up program.
same here ...
refurb Roku2 and Hulu is a lot better.
not perfect, the interface still sucks ...
and on occasion too much pushing of buttons, ie FF, rewind
will get it to hang.
and Hulu still seems unable to 'finish' an episode ...
when i come back, there is always a 'do you want to resume'
a program that i finished, and know i allowed Hulu to complete.
but, minor compared to what it did with the Roku 1.
i also still reboot before trying to watch Hulu ...
just to avoid the hassle.
works ... ok.
