The issues (some reported earlier) with the Roku 2 just continue. First, need to reboot often after I had owned the Roku for a little over a year. Second, keeps losing wireless connection although the Roku said the connection was excellent and my laptops, Nexus and other devices do not have this problem. Third, the status light sometimes will blink instead of staying on constantly when the Roku is on. Finally (so far), the Roku no longer works with Netflix. Netflix support had me uninstall its channel, then reinstall it. That worked for about a day. Now even with a reinstall it will not last that long. On my second call to Netflix (getting Roku support is a joke) , they said this was a sign the Roku was going bad and they had seen this many times before. When I informed them the Roku was only a little over a year old, they said not surprised.
BTW, I just checked and Netflix works fine on my old Roku (N1100 which had been used for less than a year before buying the Roku 2), my LG BR player with apps and my LG TV with apps. Interesting that this occurred shortly after the new menu was installed but probably a coincidence. Luckily the old Roku does not have the newest menu.
Although I have had it a little over a year, I will return to Costco and see what I can work out. Maybe an Apple TV. I did use their American Express which doubles the warranty. Is the Roku original warranty 1 year or a cheap 90 days? If the latter, that probably tells us all we need to know about Roku quality. Very frustrated.
