Why I Gave Up on Roku

I had a Roku 3 for many years. It was a fantastic product. I used it for 4 years without issues. Then, some months ago, I decided to upgrade to a Roku Ultra. This was a mistake.

Re: Roku Ultra flashing black screen.

I NEVER ONCE had a problem with my Roku 3 blanking on my Samsung @ 1080. But it started when I upgraded to a Roku Premier+. Tried everything. They even sent me a new one. I even got a new HDMI cable, but the black screen only happens on 1080. It never happens with 720.

Re: Repeated picture blanking of DIRECTVNOW on Roku Ultra

I never had a single blanking issue with my Roku 3. Never once. But when I got a Roku Premiere+, the blanking started. Roku sent me a replacement unit, but the blanking still occurs. I even tried buying a new high quality HDMI cable, but it still happens.
