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

2 hours of streaming Pandora Temp: 64C Fan: 25% Room Temp: 70F Top is warm to touch and the bottom is slightly warmer. I guess this will conclude my testing as my unit appears fine other than the low volume buzzing of the fan. The buzzing can only be heard in a quite room so I'll call that good to g...

Re: Roku 4 storage

I am not adding games, or movies. Just streaming apps for a streaming box. I could understand the need for a sd card if you are playing games etc... If indeed the box only had 256meg, that has been pretty much unchanged by roku for several years now, and is very chincy for the price of the Roku 4. ...

Re: Roku 4 storage

I paid $138 for this. My FTV stick that I got for $19 on sale has 8gb. I guess I don't feel I should need to buy an sd card for a $140 device. It doesn't help that they don't allow you to see how much storage is free. If they did, it would help me deteremine if my Roku 3 lags are due to resources o...

Re: PBS connection issues

It must be location based.

SoCal PBS: (as previously stated no issue watching This Old House on Roku 3)

I now have a Roku 4:

This Old House: Got an ad for Super Girl then the show played fine

My Brothers Bomber: Got an ad for Paranormal Activity then the show played fine.

Re: Roku 4 storage

The Roku wiki page says 256 (unconfirmed) so I am guessing that's probably what it has.

Why not just use an SD card?

Re: Roku 4: Is Fan Problem that widespread or just a few uni

Had the Nexus player and absolutely hated it! Had the Amazon Fire TV and absolutely hated it! My main reason for not liking either of them is the GUI. It's their way or the highway! You can't arrange your apps, you can't move things to where you like or want them. Fire TV search is Amazon services o...

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

We could some more diagnosing of the fan noise. Go to the secret platform screen. Home Button x 5 FF x 1 Play x 1 RW x 1 Play x 1 FF x 1 The temp and current fanspeed will be displayed. Please post results and maybe how loud you believe it is. The fan should be nearly silent at around 25%. As previ...

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

The engineering team has followed up with me and I will be sending my unit back for them to research. Apparently my experience is the first of its kind so far and they are eager to find out what went wrong. They seem to be on the ball. Hopefully mine was an isolated incident. Kudos to Roku for cont...

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

I came over to the Forum to take one last look around before going and getting a new Roku4 unit. That plan came to a screeching halt with this post. Well, flour. So my option is to start switching over to FireTV (I threw up a little typing that), buy an R3, or buy an R4 hack the case off and add a ...

Happened to be in Walmart today and checked to see if they had the Roku 4 available. They did but I was surprised when I saw that the price was $149 instead of $129.

Why would they jack up the price $20 (or %15)?

Must have been a price error.. I got one from Walmart and it was $129

I think I read somewhere you can put the 4 in sleep mode and that will stop the fan from running. Another issue is the heat. I was going to stack it on top of my Roamio but that's not going to happen now IF I even keep the 4...

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

I'd like @RokuShawnS or another Roku rep to respond here as to what is going on..

Is it hardware related or a software bug causing the fan to ramp up?

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

This is a short vid demonstrating the fan noise I'm experiencing.... ugh. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hip3H8WN26k Holy crap! Mine is nowhere even close to being that loud.. I can only hear mine in a quiet room with the TV off or muted and even then it's a slight buzzing sound. Your unit is defi...
