Re: Roku 2 Constantly Buffering, certain channels unwatchable

Anyone else noticing the 2 XS getting worse? Specifically with youtube, but I saw Netflix reboot and I do not recall that ever happening. As far as youtube, there's the rebooting and exiting to Home screen like it's been doing for while. But to add to it, now seeing video freeze while audio keeps pl...

Re: Netflix on Express is useless after 4.2 75021000 - buffers to 25% and stops

A reboot will remedy the situation but it is a pain to reboot all the time --- this is less an "express" bug as it is a "netflix" bug but am sure it will be sorted very quickly I would tend to agree. My first generation Roku (aka "Netflix Player") experienced this last...

Re: Turn off roku

This 'everything has to be on all the time' mentality is stupid and just another reflection of the attention deficit society we live in where people can't wait a few seconds to turn something on. "a few seconds"? I can't speak for newer model rokus, but my XS takes almost 2 minutes to boo...

Odd connectivity problem Roku 2XS 3100X

Connected wireless. This has been going on intermittently for a couple months, at least back to firmware 6.9 (currently on 7.2.0 build 4100-02). Every channel starts acting like there is no internet connection. Netflix: "Netflix services experienced an internal error" Pandora: "We are...

Re: Newsy Update

Newsy was playing one commercial every two news clips, which was borderline tolerable. They have now changed to one commercial every news clip. That's too much.

Because we can now roll back, can you please allow manual updates? The problems I've read about so far would not affect me on my XS and I am very tired of the freeze up/reboots in youtube.

Music during reboot

I'm not sure when music was added to the bouncing logo during reboot, but it's kinda nice, since it reboots so often while watching music videos on youtube, at least I get some tuneage during the reboot. Thanks guys

Re: Roku 2 XS (3100X) running Ver. 7.9044 .... issues resolv

After a couple more hours of watching I finally saw one video freeze that lasted longer than it usually took to reboot. Once it restarted the pause/restart commands took about 20-30 seconds to register. After a bit it starting responding within a second.

Re: Roku 2 XS (3100X) running Ver. 7.9044 .... issues resolv

I watch youtube probably a couple hours a night at least. I've experienced the reboots, video freezing, and slow remote response. So far on the new firmware, the slow remote response is all I've seen, and it's not nearly as bad. I have also not tried any of the suggestions about turning off menu sou...

Re: YouTube and 7.0 Software

The channel seems to be very buggy for me on a roku 3. It's constantly buffering and causing reboots My Roku 2XS has been doing that for at least two weeks with v6 software. I just checked and have received v7 in the last day or so. I'll see if it gets better or worse. I played around with the cont...

Re: Autoplay in Youtube

Be careful what you wish for, you may get it. I believe most people were against autoplay. I with you. As long as I can turn it off. Just tested it. I put 2 videos in my Favorites list and it played back to back so no problem here. I think that might have something to do with it. I was playing some...

Autoplay in Youtube

Anyone else have sporatic results with Autoplay? Actually it _was_ sporadic and just doesn't work now. Toggle setting, restart youtube app, and it never works. That's toggleing the setting on Youtube's page. I don't see one in the app.

Re: NEW: The Relax Channel - Worth a punt

i just watched the aforementioned video and in 45 minutes had 90 seconds of ads. Beats the heck out of the last time I watched cable at a hotel. They'll all get worse. Seen it coming from the beginning. But still... WAY cheaper than when I had satellite 10 years ago.
