Re: buffering

Sling TV is terrible.. Everything else on the Roku probably works fine except for that app / channel... Sling TV is the only channel that buffers for me. I have 80 down and 5 up and it sill can't work properly. ESPN is a prime example. On Sling TV it's terrible but when watched through the ESPN app ...

Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

This is good news for all of us non-early adopters. There will be plenty of refurbished units in a month or two. :D This is why I'm never an early adopter. I don't mind being an early adopter as long as the product is from a long time and reputable company. Usually doing so entails minor bugs that ...

Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

I ordered the new Apple TV this morning so I'll see how that goes. I have an older one upstairs so that's probably where the new one will go after it arrives. Roku is always on my main TV.. I would have considered the Apple TV, but Roku still seems to offer the most content. Most importatnt to me i...

Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

I doubt Roku will redesign the 4. The fan is probably there to stay. I imagine they may look into adjusting manufacturing to somewhat resolve the issue (I assume something is going wrong at the plant). But even then those units would not be on the market for some time. I won't be buying another. I ...

Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

Mine died after getting scorching hot. It would not even boot. I returned mine to Walmart yesterday and am back using my Roku 3 (2015).. My unit started off just fine. It was quiet and cool then something happened to it while it sat idle. Roku has terrible support and I mean terrible! I always buy m...

My unit was the same way.. Then it croaked per my previous post... Keep an eye on it.

Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

Mine is dead.. I noticed it very very hot! The fan was silent but the unit was blazing hot. I unplugged it and let it sit for an hour or so. Now when I plug it in, nothing! I assume it's dead. I am going to pack it up and return it to Walmart for a refund. I do not know what happened as mine has bee...

Re: What is wrong with Roku wifi?

It's the Sling TV app.. It's terrible! The Roku is not at fault if everything else on it, besides Sling TV, works fine, as is the case for me.. Sling needs to fix their crappy Roku app.. Errr, I think you're talking about a different problem. I'm not using the Sling TV app, and I am seeing slowness...

Re: What is wrong with Roku wifi?

Wifi channels at my address are pretty much equally (but only moderately) congested. But here's the thing: if I put my iPhone or my laptop at the exact same spot as the Roku, they get full speed wifi. So there obviously isn't any debilitating wifi interference or signal-blockage at this spot. There...

Re: Sling TV App Really Needs Work.

I doubt it's a Roku issue.... I had problems on my Roku 3, then had problems with my Roku 3 (2015 version) and now have problems with Roku 4. My internet is 80 down and 5 up. Everything else on the Roku's has streamed just fine and the only issue I ever have buffering wise and dropping to a fuzzy SD...

Re: What is wrong with Roku wifi?

My WiFi speeds are spot on using the Roku app.. I ran both tests at the same time. Macbook: 86 down (LA server) Roku App: 85 down (LA server) Perhaps you have some sort of interference from other networks. Try a WiFI channel scanner to see what channels are congested. If you have a Mac try this: Hol...

No that's NOT normal. Others seeing that behavior in this thread have been told to exchange the unit by Roku engineers..

Re: NFL on Yahoo

I can care less about either team..

I was more interested in how well Yahoo would be able to handle the live stream. I would not be surprised if at some point going forward the NFL offers a similar streaming package like MLB and NHL..

NFL on Yahoo

Anyone else watching the game?

The stream is clean and smooth. I've not had any buffering and it looks like it's 1080p.

Pretty impressed overall as streaming live sports is sometime difficult but Yahoo appears to have nailed it.
