Re: Roku Ultra flashing black screen.

I've just started seeing green lines on the bottom part of my screen while in roku. Yes, I'm running a Samsung 4k uhd TV. But every other device I own (shield, Apple tv, ps4) doesn't do the blinking black screen or the green lines. I swapped HDMI ports and cables to make sure it wasn't the TV. This ...

It just started a few months ago. Also I've noticed that it gets hot as crap when sitting. It's on a ...

Re: Netflix and other streaming issues.

Yes, do a factory reset. I know it's a pain to set everything back up.. But I have had one of mine that did that.. Not during certian hours, but it did seem more at night if I recall... But doing a factory reset, then checking for updates should help..

Re: Netflix and other streaming issues.

My xs didn't get hot.. That's why I was asking.. I flipped it over so its upside down and it doesn't seem to get as hot.. I guess you get what you pay for.. It seems to be running good now that I flipped it over.. It doesn't lock up like it did the other way.. I guess I need to bite the buliet and g...

Re: Netflix and other streaming issues.

Kewl deal... I just bought the new one (crazy blue bottom, but it works) and it works fine.. As far as it working off my network, yes. I took it to a neighbor that is almost a mile away (he's the only one I know that would let me test it with a fast enough connection. He has 5mbps dsl.) By the way, ...

Re: Netflix and other streaming issues.

Oh, and one more thing.. Netflix, Hulu, amazon, crackle, plex and twit.tv all buffer like crazy, it's not just one service.. If is was just one service, I'd be asking that streaming service..

Re: Netflix and other streaming issues.

Ok, thanks for atleast giving me ideas. As far as the grainy picture. Different hdmi cables, different hdmi port, different tv and different house (neighbors) and it looks the same. I know that it's digital, and ether has a picture or doesn't.. That's why I think it's the video processor. It's the r...

Could my tv some how be messing stuff up? I have the equipment hooked up straight to my Samsung tv.. ...
