Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

Will this new firmware help me for my situation? I have a 3100x that I did a factory reset on and am now stuck in this update loop flour! Tried all the tricks posted here and on /r/roku to no avail. :( Is there another thread for us specifically. I never had the freezing issues ever but then again ...

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

Elijah, I understand your sentiment. I haven't had the same experience (overall.) All 3 of my 2XS units (for the price I paid of $45 per unit) have by and far exceeded their value in performance overall. I am amazed that ROKU even spends the time updating them, instead of allowing them to become obs...

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

I just joined the forum so that I could post on this thread. I have had this issue and have to restart my Roku nightly. Since the issue started happening for me, I have purchased a Chromecast and I am now using it for every app that is supported by Chromecast. Unfortunately there are a few things t...

Re: Sling---and its problems

Hopefully this revamped interface will make it to the ROKU. I'll probably have to re-teach my neighbor how to use his TV again :) http://techcrunch.com/2016/01/05/sling-tv-dishs-internet-tv-service-for-cord-cutters-unveils-a-more-personalized-interface/ Highlights: The new interface centers on a &qu...

Re: OS 7 Broke my Roku 2 XS

Give this a try...it may aid your ROKU from locking up, until they can find a fix. Get into your audio settings and turn the menu audio "clicking" to 'OFF'. This has helped most folks stabilize their units.

Re: Xbox One and OTA

Yeppers! I've been waiting for the functionality to arrive. I haven't purchased a tuner yet, mainly because it would be of no use until the DVR functionality arrives. Also, I'd like to see them release a dual-tuner USB device, as the only one out currently is a single tuner. Hopefully the update wil...

Re: Mysterious Channel Added

Elijah, I have a PIN to purchase on my account, and I found Showtime on at least one of my units (the only one I've checked so far) last night. I immediately removed it. This was NOT a channel that I added myself (or did any of my family members.) So, I can confirm that if you have a PIN the channel...

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

Agreed John. There seems to be something in that "wait" period before doing any navigation, most of the time. I did just have a total BSOD when attempting to start a 'The Tonight Show' episode on my 2XS that had been sitting for about 9 hours. Not sure what just happened there...but I thin...

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

I'm getting this same problem on my Roku 2 XS as well, just started the past couple weeks, presumably right at same time as firmware 7. Unplugging solves it for a short time, which is very strange to me. From the MODs, give this a try to further their troubleshooting / info gathering efforts: "...

Re: Looks like 7.0 firmware is rolling out

my 2XS has been [mostly] solid for almost two years. since the update (around nov 24) it has been freezing [on average] at least once a day, requiring a power cycle to get it back. Talked w/ one of the MODs today that is working w/ me on this issue. He posted this on another thread: ---- Okay, this...

Re: OS 7 Broke my Roku 2 XS

For folks that are having "lockups" or freezing on the 2XS, give this a try: Okay, this is a total shot in the dark, but for any of you experiencing this freezing issue, can you try something specific? Go to the Roku settings, select 'Audio' and assuming you have menu volume on, please try...

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

They do that with the BETA program. Unfortunately, this bug somehow made it past the BETA program and reared its head just as they were ready to roll this to PUBLIC.

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

I know it is a pain, but they will find the issue and work it out. They had issues when the went from v4 to v5 and it took them a while to get it right. While frustrating, I'm confident that they'll find the issue. They have done a pretty good job of keeping the older hardware relevant w/ software u...

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

MODs, My PROD 2XS locked up today. I just did a DUMP sequence on the unit, and it reset as expected. Here's the serial # so that you guys can gather the DUMP info from it. Serial# 13C246010730 The unit is wired to a Cisco 3650 10/100 switch. The unit is connected to Samsung LED TV at 1080p via HDMI....
