Re: Odd System Updates

That's what I assumed was happening but the response from RokuShawnS makes it sound like the developers added the messages with a ti...

Re: Odd System Updates

^^ I assume it also checks and updates, if necessary, all the channels you have installed. If you have 300 channels installed - it's checks each one. I understand all that, but I really think the update is doing something additional that it didn't used to. I have the same number of channels as befo...

Re: Odd System Updates

While I don't share some people's paranoia regarding the silly Roku update messages, I have been wondering what the system is doing in the 25 seconds these messages are displayed during every manual update for the past week or so. Also I think the same process is now happening with every channel ins...

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

I just want to say that my Roku2XS has not experienced another unexpected reboot since upgrading to FW v5.5.410 the day it was released. Also before the upgrade there was another issue (probably related) with the device becoming progressively slower the longer it was running until either an unexpect...

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

Roku has determined the crashes are related to the playback of Netflix Super HD streams on players configured for 1080p output. I don't have an ETA on when a fix will be released. C. Shawn Smith Thank you for the update. It's good to hear the developers are on it. What you said totally fits in with...

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

Not really hot on the outside, just warm. Maybe that's not the cause then. I really don't remember how warm it would get prior to 5.4 fw auto-upgrading which started the reboots for the first time in under 24 hours later. Despite the 2 reboots since I manually upgraded to 5.5 a couple days go, I do ...

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

This has probably been tried before, but try the 720p setting, instead of the 1080p for a while and see what happens. If that fails, try 480. If someone can make a Roku 2xs run flawlessly without a reboot at some setting, that would go a long way to isolating the problem - and it could be coinciden...

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

I just want to add some details about my experience with the reboot that will hopefully help the developers trace the source of the issue. I've already posted about my reboots which began happening daily for the first time less than 24 hours after my Roku2XS auto-upgraded to the previous 5.4 fw. I u...

Re: Roku 2XS Update 5.5.320

Updated to v5.5.320 and one difference I noticed right away is the official Youtube channel operates much faster. Before updating the Youtube interface was so slow and laggy it would usually take up to 5 seconds or more to respond to each remote keypress and I couldn't stand to use it. Now after wit...

I second this. It would be a very useful feature for those of us with large queues.

Re: Roku2 XS Bluetooth Remote SLOW to respond sometimes, WHY

I thought I should mention that in my experience the batteries need to be very full for the remote to work good. When they get to around 3/4 capacity is when the remote starts getting sluggish for me. At least that was my experience with the previous remote firmware.

Re: Roku 2 xd connection problem

I gave a Roku 2 XS as an xmas present and it failed to consistently see or connect to the wireless network, which was using a DLink DIR-601 router. After some research, I stumbled upon a solution, though it seems random or silly. What worked perfectly for me: Go into the Roku settings, go to Time z...

Re: Roku2 XS Bluetooth Remote SLOW to respond sometimes, WHY

I would guess it may be interference causing the slow response. I have a Roku2 XS with the updated firmware for the box & the remote. My remote wakes from the new sleep mode within a second or less and is fast responding to a keypress. I know from past experience that low batteries can significa...

Re: New bug with firmware 4.1 b2667 & b2669

I just thought I would let everyone know my Roku2 XS has been working great with the newest v4.2 firmware. I am also back to using the CLOC Weather & Time screensaver and there are no further problems with my Roku that need addressing.

Re: Roku 2 xd connection problem

I had to disable 802.11n on my D-link DIR-601 router for the connection to work well on my Roku2. For some reason it had many connection problems with 802.11n, but when I set it to "802.11g only" it works great. I also had to experiment with different channels to find a good one. The spee...
