Re: Live streaming issues that plagued many on 7.7 has returned on 8.0

I've come across this thread today in search of some answers to my buffering woes w/ my 2 4630X Premiere+ units. I've been playing w/ wireless in the house all day, and cannot seem to overcome the buffering issues. The main app that seems plagued w/ buffering (for the first minute or two of playback...

Re: New HDMI streaming stick-buffering, please help!

After working w/ wifi on a professional basis, it amazes me that ROKU would even attempt to support home users and their wifi issues. RF is SO extremely complex when it comes to diagnosing root cause for issues. Most of the time, it is purely RF band saturation in your environment. Here's a great v...

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

please rollback our firmware. What firmware version are you on?  I know that there is still active development happening beyond 7.5.0. Hello:    Yeah, still active development in the fact that the 2 XS will receive the newest firmware version but I am convinced Roku development teams are not bother...

Re: Black screen with sound

My neighbor has been having black screen issues with SlingTV on a ROKU stick.  He complained that he could barely watch the basketball game last night on TNT due to the black screen coming up every few minutes.  He said when it did come up, there was no picture nor sound.  I have a feeling that Slin...

Re: Feature Requests - Second Quarter 2017

FIX THE HDCP PURPLE SCREEN OF DEATH, HOW ABOUT THAT FOR A FEATURE REQUEST? I had that on a 2XS refurb out of the box, and had to return it for a replacement.  In my mind, its a hardware issue within the box.  The replacement came w/ the same code level, and worked like a champ.  I know that probabl...

Re: Sling---and its problems

My neighbor was trying to watch the basketball game last night on TNT via the ROKU Streaming Stick, and said he had constant "black screen" issues.  I think this is basically a buffering screen.  He has 60/5 Spectrum internet plan, so we know that bandwidth availability is not the issue.  ...

Re: Roku Ultra....Purple Screen with HDCP Unauthorized Message

I ran into this issue a few years ago on a brand new out of the box ROKU 2 XS.  The issue was hardware-related with the unit itself.  I RMA'd the unit, they shipped a new one, and it worked out of the box.  This says to me that there is a small margin of defect in hardware getting sent out from the ...

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

Same issue here.  I have a ROKU 2 XS.  The only way to prevent it from crashing is to reboot the ROKU before using Youtube.  I'm running the most recent firmware version with the latest application available.  The only thing that I haven't tried yet is to insert a MicroSD card to allow Youtube to ca...

Re: Feature Requests - Third Quarter 2016

Yep I know. But I also know that calling Netflix and asking them for it is a dead end. Having Roku reach out is a better option, so I posted the request here :)

Re: Feature Requests - Third Quarter 2016

How about Parental PIN support for Netflix app in the 2XS models? Plex supports it, so I'm sure Netflix can do it too.

Re: Poll: For Roku 2 XS users running new firmware 7.2

I've had zero random reboots with 7.2.4100 firmware. I have seen a few random "exit to main menu" type issues where the app just seems to die, but those are few.

Re: Feature Requests - Second Quarter 2016

How about an update for Netflix on the ROKU 2 that'd support the user profiles so we can utilize the content ratings system, or at least the PIN protection? With a PIN set for specific content, the current version of the Netflix channel doesn't support PIN entry :(
