Re: Why Does Youtube Crash the Roku 2 EVERY TIME?

Same issues with my 2XS and You Tube making it just about worthless at least for YT.  I have a 2015 2 and You Tube works although since they puts ads on just about every video now I do occasionally get freeze ups and I have to back out to the main menu. I'll keep the XS for the connectivity to older...

Re: New Roku Lineup (Confirmed no fans!)

From what I read the Ultra has a fan but that Roku reworked it to run quieter plus the box is smaller.  I'm glad they offer a model for older TV's. Not offering ether net or USB on the lower tier models is kind of a drag but I guess something had to go to keep the cost down. I already have three Rok...

Re: Just upgraded from 2XS to ROKU 2, Wow!

Same upgrade I did a while back and though I miss the bluetooth remote of the XS the 2 4210 is all around much better

Re: Whats with ALL of my roku's randomly double blinking??

My 2 4210 out of the blue started double blinking the other night had to unplug it to get it to stop once it rebooted the blinking stopped. Maybe it needed to reboot to complete an update who knows

Re: Is it worth upgrading Roku XD to a 3 or 4?

I'd go with the 2015 2 unless line of sight for the remote is going to be a problem than go with the 3.

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

My 2XS crashed last night and is stuck on the bouncing Roku tried unplugging it and a hard reset no go. Its been sluggish for the last week or so don't know if it's the update that killed it or if it gave up the ghost but I'm bummed. Try leaving it unplugged for an hour, also if you have a memory c...

I just picked up a ten dollar RCA remote that came with a Roku code and it works fine with my 2 as well as my 2XS.

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

Just got the 9044 update installed on my XS (3100X). Last night the system became totally unusable. It kept trying to scroll the menus and randomly select a video. After a reboot it stabilized long enough to launch a video, but within a minute started with the random remote commands to ffd and reve...

Re: Roku 2 4210R IR remote issues.

Wing rider ....do you think it is the box or the remote that is the issue? I want to purchase the remote only on eBay to use with my 2xs for the slingtv button. Not sure, but the spare IR simple remote I bought from Roku for my 2XS worked from across the room and well off center when I tried it on ...

Re: Roku 2 4210R IR remote issues.

I think it's the pick up in the box itself I've fried using a spare Roku IR remote that I have when used with my 2XS it works fine across the room and just about from any angle. When used with my 2015 2 it acts the same as the remote that came with it that is terrible. Come on Roku offer us 2 owners...

Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

After some thought about what I want and need in an upgrade from my 2xs I'm going to go with the 2. I had been waiting a long time on the four I'm sure its a wonderful device but it's way more than what I need. And frankly I don't want something that big or that requires a fan I'm spoiled on small a...
