Re: 7.1 Update

Got the freeze again even after disabling menu sounds. As mentioned in updated post above, it appears to happen when I start a new video stream. Am streaming in SD (old TV). I switch streams a lot in TWC app since I like "changing channels " because I hate commercials. It has happened whe...

Re: YouTube no longer working

Done a reset on the router and it's fine... Thanks for the tip, should've thought of it myself to be honest. I've had issues w/ Youtube in the past, and it was DNS related. I had switched my DNS servers on my router to point to OpenDNS instead of the TWC DNS servers, and my performance was horrible...

Re: Can't load channel, reinstalling from network, craps out

Most likely something got DNS cached and a server IP changed on ROKU's end, and it was cached on your router. Hate to say it, but sometimes a reboot DOES actually help a situation. It surely cannot hurt as a first line of defense before calling support. Glad it worked out!

Re: 7.1 Update

There were some challenges with the 7.1 update that didn't get caught, so they stopped the rollout. It's just a hunch on my part, but I'd bet they'll be re-rolling it again in another week or so.

Re: Roku have an iptv app?

There are quite a few channels out there that we use. SlingTV is paid, Time Warner Cable has an app if you are a TV subscriber that will basically turn your ROKU into a cable box. PlutoTV is a faux TV experience, complete with TV tuning guide, etc. We still prefer Hulu w/o ads, as its the best bang ...

Re: Sling TV App Really Needs Work.

Roku with 7.1 OS still continue to reboot while using this app. Sigh... Heard this app will be on Apple TV soon. Hopefully they will make it work right.. yeah I can only hope :) Really? I don't seem to be having that issue. If you had to put a timeframe on it, how long would you say (on average) yo...

Re: traveling with Roku

We took ours on vacation with us, and it did its job well providing movie night each night after a long day at the beach :) Love the portability of the little box!

Re: Roku 2 XS reboot - What is the status

The first thing that you need to do is ensure that you are on the latest release, which I believe is 7.0.9044. After that, ensure that you have the menu audio set to 'disable' so there is no clicking. Then, reboot your device. After that, the lockups & reboots should subside. Have you done the a...

Re: Roku 2 XS (3100X) running new Ver. 7.9037 .... any iss

Can you guys verify your software version? I'm thinking you should be on 7.0.9044, not 9037. I have seen these lockups as well. I've been using the "debug reset" trick from my remote to reboot the unit. Here's my serial # for engineer review: 13C246010730. I'll be disabling the menu audio ...

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

Just know that ROKU hasn't forgotten you. They are actively working on resolving any issues that may be present in the firmware, resulting in any sort of instability. I am not a ROKU employee... After almost 4 months of this, I have to call BS. ROKU's communication regarding a fix & date of rel...

Yep! :) In this case, though, it's not as flashy. The 'B' is for Black or Blank... Would love to see some dump info though!

This issue is still happening on firmware version 7.0.9044. We experienced the issue last night twice, then gave up on the channel.

Re: Sling---and its problems

We are still are experiencing occasional lockups with the SlingTV channel on firmware version 7.0.9044. It seems to play ok for awhile, then randomly the screen will freeze, go black, and then reboot. Seems like a memory leak over memory buffer overflow type issue.
