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

It's not PMS (Plex Media Server) and it's not hidden. "Preview" is a Preview of the official Plex app you can load as a private channel: https://forums.plex.tv/t/roku-previews-beta/386800 I was apparently confused by the terminology, specifically the word 'app'...  To me, the word "a...

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

(Plex Preview Channel)  ...is a preview of the public app before it's released. The Public or Preview Plex apps do NOT go home after a period of inactivity. Never. I can open either one of those apps and spend weeks/months in them with no fear of EVER going home during inactivity. As soon as you le...

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

Just fire up the new Plex Preview App. It breaks Roku TV power saving features as well as 'Phone Home', 'cause it NEVER goes back home, at any time, for any reason. Developers wanting to disable 'Phone Home' need only contact Plex... they've cracked the code. Interesting. I found a post in the Plex...

Re: What model Rokus seem stable and "problem free" and which models to stay away from???

Roku 3 * Frequently locks up, have to reboot almost daily. * Instant replay button (7 seconds) only does one jump. If I want to jump back 14 or 21 seconds, I have to use rewind, which always overshoots. Tedious!! * I like the wireless earplugs. I use when riding exercise bike. With R2, I had to str...

Re: PBS channel - only shows loading circle

I've been noticing this on my Roku's lately (Roku 3 and 2XD).  I assumed it was a resource issue at the server, not Roku. If I wait a half hour, it usually loads. I would consider 'subscribing' to PBS via donation to get access to more content, but the channel and UI is so poor I rarely bother with ...

Re: Roku Ultra Netflix Hangs At 25%

I get the random netflix buffering issue with my 4200x software  v7.5.0 Buffering? This thread is about a different problem (read the title). Your prob seems unrelated. Indeed, I've never had a buffering problem with my 4200. Next time yours starts buffering, use the Netflix 'check connection' util...

Re: Roku Ultra Netflix Hangs At 25%

It only seems to occur when I  hit play right away.  If I let it auto start it seems ok... My R3 hung at 25% again today. I remembered what you said about auto-start, but I realized that only happens when you watch until the end of one ep and let it automatically continue to the next ep. However, w...

I don't think playing immediately has anything to do with it. Are you saying when your ultra hangs at 25%, you can back up and let it auto-load, and it w...

Re: Roku Ultra Netflix Hangs At 25%

My Roku 3 (4200X) started hanging @ 25% on Netflix a couple of weeks ago. I mostly watch netflix but it does it on other channels as well. I had to cycle the power every time this happened. 7.5.0 loaded on the 12th and all seemed to be fine until today, it hung at 25% again. I tried "check netw...

Re: Roku Pushing New Channels to me

Regardless of whether a Roku is asleep or displaying a screensaver, it will ignore the first button press.  It never accepts a button press if the UI is not displayed. --Mark @Mark, that's not correct. Maybe it's a matter of semantics but the first button press (obviously) terminates the screensave...

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

for those that say it's "fixed," you might want to ensure you are checking on the same app as you were when you previously experienced it. My previous comment was specific to Netflix. I just checked and my Roku's are all still on v7.1, which was push out last April. So clearly this welcom...

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

Well, it looks like those of us who expressed displeasure with this latest change have been heard. Since yesterday, neither of my Rokus (Roku HD and Roku 2 XD) have returned to the home screen. Thank you!

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

The last two times I watched movies on Netflix in about 30 to 60 seconds I was booted to the home screen.... I agree with Mike. I think all of us have experienced this type of crash from the beginning. In many cases, I have to cycle the Roku power supply. Although not specifically related to this t...

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

I have talked to someone who says his box doesn't return like mine... He has a different model than I do. I have the Roku 1, and I think he has a Roku 3. I have Roku HD (1) and Roku 2 XD, and both do it. Previous comments suggests this behavior also occurs with Roku 3, indeed all models. The only w...
