Re: Roku 3 won't stop rebooting

If you have an SD card installed in your Roku3 try removing it. Some have found this helps.

Re: Roku Ultra & YoutubeTV buffering/slow connection

Have you tried re-installing the YouTube app?

Remove the app.

Restart your Roku to remove all vestiges of the removed app from memory.  This is important, don't skip this step.

Re-install the app.  If you have a YouTube account, you'll have to re-authenticate your account.

Re: Roku 2 Remote Died Today

I suspect we have a pronoun reference problem here.  I think he means:

"Because of the remote freezing I do not know if [the Roku2] is still connected to my wireless network", i.e. he can't get to the System screens to check the wifi connection.

Re: Bug Found- New Streaming Stick+ Install, Software Update, No Remote

Are you attempting to connect to a 5Ghz wifi band or a 2.4Ghz wifi band? Unless they've changed this with later models, Rokus with 5GHz don't support the DFS  (dynamic frequency selection) channels (52, 56, 60, 64, 100, 104, 108, 112, 116, 132, and 136).  DFS channels are shared with other uses such...

Re: MLB TV not working

FWIW, this problem apparently is not universal.  I watch games almost daily and have never experienced it.  This may make it difficult for Roku and/or MLB engineers to track the problem down. My particulars: Roku3 4200X Roku software ver  9.1.0, build 4111-04 Connected via 2.4GHz wifi MLB.TV ver 6.1...

Re: Subscription on both my Rokus?

When you add any of the Roku channels to your Roku account, they should show up on all Roku units that are registered to that account.  (Exception: some channels may require the hardware capabilities of later model Rokus.  For any such channel, it will not show in older models that don't have the re...

Re: Curiosity stream quit working

After removing a channel you should restart the Roku to be sure all vestiges of the channel are removed befire you reinstall the channel.

Don't know whether this applies to an old Roku 1, but it's worth a try.

Re: Roku 3 unable to connect

If you have an SD card installed in the Roku3, try removing it and see if that will allow it to complete the boot up.  I've not experienced this, but I've read it can sometimes help.

Re: Ultimate Remote Batteries Dying Quickly

The remote gets put into a basket while being watched as well as for the night. I've found the button response on my Roku3 to be incredibly sensitive.  I've interrupted many a non-Roku viewing because the slightest pressure on a Roku remote button causes a response that triggers my tv to switch to ...

Expired roku.com certificate

Your security certificate expired today, June 16, 2019.  Firefox will not allow me to connect unless I accept the invalid cert.  Most casual users will not do this.  Your cert needs to be renewed ASAP.

Re: LATEST roku models without auto preview netflix?

Well let's see, if I had downloaded a netflix movie onto my cellphone and then moved to a remote location, and wanted to beam it wirelessly to a large screen, I guess Roku is out of the question as a design featurefunction?  Seems like the hardware would be perfectly capable. There are also licensi...

Re: Streaming Sports?

There are also stand alone apps for the NBA, NHL and I think the NFL DirecTV has had the exclusive right to the full NFL package for many years.  Directv does make a standalone streaming version available but ONLY for those people who are incapable of receiving a Directv satellite signal due to top...
