Re: Spotify Roku Channel (playlists) Officially Dead

Now the channel is finally rendered inert. This is a sad end to a pathetically long process of corporate evasion.  Where the corporate responsibility lies is the nagging question. Does anyone believe that this is the result of "technical challenges?"  I wonder if we will ever know what was...

Re: Roku Spotify app was built by Roku - please fix!

The only features that work for me are "What's New" and "Top Tracks," neither of which I care about. I can't load playlists, inbox is dead... A quick google search shows people having this issue all the way back in 2013! Along with all the other problems people are reporting, sa...

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

I have a 2 XS with an 8 MB card inserted and it does nothing to stop the reboots.  Also, warm booting the Roku as a prophylaxis is not always successful.

Re: Roku Spotify app was built by Roku - please fix!

The Spotify channel on Roku has been a blight and a pathetic embarrassment almost from the beginning .......   playlist changes not syncing with desktop or mobile app, tracks refusing to play, album thumbnails refusing to load, streams failing intermittently, search function breaking ........  all w...

Re: Roku 2 - Drama Fever endlessly "Loading"

Any update on this problem?  I made a service request to DramaFever and received a reply that they are "looking into it."

Re: Spotify problem

Does anyone know if this is a Spotify problem or a Roku problem?  People have been posting about this on the Spotify forum as well.

Re: PBS Channel

Dale, I'm getting worse issues under 4099 build.  Sometimes the box (3100X)  will completely lockup after either starting a video, or pausing, or exiting a video and trying to browse other available videos in the channel. Also, still getting the issue where the instant replay always goes back to the...

Re: 7.5.4099 available for all roku players now

Any update on the reboot issue when launching the RadioReference channel?  It didn't happen under version 7.2.
Also, getting even worse issues now with the PBS channel. (See other topics on this.)  The box (3100x)  will sometimes completely lockup, and only a cold boot will clear the issue.

Re: Spotify problem

It's been happening under ver, 7.2 and latest build (4099)  of 7.5.  I also see a new bug with TuneIn channel which just started with the latest build.  I started a few streams and, when switching between programs, shortly after the Roku (2 XS)  locked up and rebooted.  I have reverted back to ver. ...

Spotify problem

When I exit the channel and later try to launch it, either playlists will not show up at all or the album art thumbnails are blank placeholders and I get no audio streaming.  The search function is also non-functional when this happens.  Sometimes the channel is stuck at "loading."  The on...

It worked earlier today, but it looks like all their live feeds are down (the master m3u8 is there, but none of the streams).  Let's hope it's a temporary glitch.

I wonder what happened to their world news stream?  It's still unavailable.
