Re: Are you annoyed with Netflix channel changes?

I hate the new netflix auto everything. I don't want "music" and a preview video while I browse. I just want to browse through movies/shows and not have to have these stupid trailers or whatever you want to call them play. I don't want "autoplay" when I click into a show. I do wa...

Re: Roku returns to home screen after a certain amount of ti

I have been dealing with this for a week or so now.
I figured I would see how it goes, and I don't like it.
Please give us an option to disable this "feature".

Re: Roku 2 XS (3100X) running new Ver. 7.9037 .... any iss

I turned the menu audio off a few days ago, and my roku hung up, but after forcing a crash/reboot I have not had any issues.
I have stayed in the netflix channel since and no issues so far.

Problem resolved, called up my ISP and told them what I was seeing, they transmogrified the tubes, and things seem to be running OK now.

Re: Roku2 XS and firmware 6.1, Netflix won't do HD.

Just got done with my first factory reset to see if it would resolve my Netflix issues. It did not help sadly. If I run the example short, it will get to 1750/2350 and just go back and forth between those two bit rates. 2350 is the first step of 720p. I used to get to 5800 easy, and now it just wont...

Re: Roku2 XS and firmware 6.1, Netflix won't do HD.

While I guess i can agree that 720p is HD, it is not what I was talking about. Poor wording I guess. My bit rates have gone down by 60% or more since the update, I cant get the Netflix movie to do more then the 2300 or so, and usually it sits at 1750, it used to go to 5800, now it does not. The VUDU...

Roku2 XS and firmware 6.1, Netflix won't do HD.

Since the firmware update I am no longer able to get any HD (1080p) streams from Netflix. The best I seem to be getting is 720p, and even that changes from 720 to what ever is 1 step lower. The netflix movie that shows your bit rate gets me to 720p, and the quality below that one. 1750 and 2300 I th...

Re: 2 XS Users: Has 5.5 FW Update fixed the reboot problem?

I "fixed" my reboot problem by buying a timer to turn off my 2XS for 2 minutes everyday at 5am. I haven't had a screen freeze or unwanted reboot since I bought it, even on a couple of days I had off with nothing to do but binge some HD content for 12+ hours. Got the digital timer from Home...

Re: Roku 2 XS keeps freezing / resetting

I too am having crashing/locking/freezing issues with my 2XS, and it has been ongoing for months, or maybe over a year, but it is too long in any case. I have the newest firmware version. I only have 6 channels installed. Netflix, Crackle, History, A&E, Funimation and weather underground. 99%+ o...

Re: netflix crashes every 10 minutes

I think it is an issue with the last update and 1080p streaming. I have no issues when the roku is set to 720p, but if I set it to 1080p, I will at some point have the movie or show start to stutter/pause/stutter etc. Even had it reboot once. It is as if the roku can not process the information whil...

Re: netflix crashes every 10 minutes

I think I may be having this same issue. Before the update (the new layout/look one) I had zero problems with netflix, but then after the update I would get freezing and near lock ups while watching the new season of arrested development. I have since then watched some batman brave and the bold and ...
