Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

I updated 2 of my Roku 2 XS's to the 7.0 firmware. Both of them have experienced the same problem multiple times. The problem occurs when I haven't used my Roku 2 XS for awhile (several hours up to a day). When I try to use it after not using it for awhile, I hit the remote control one time to move...

Re: ARP Flood / Broadcast Storm

Very interesting. Is it possible to mirror one of the ports that one of the ROKU units are plugged into? It seems as though the ROKU device is not receiving the ARP reply from the default gateway, so it keeps sending the ARP requests. If you can mirror the port, and put your wireshark box on that po...

Re: TWC has plans for Roku

I've tested the channel on the Roku and it seems to work pretty well. I could see Time Warner moving forward with this as a very cheap solution instead of rolling out all of their cable boxes. They would have to do a lot more of the on demand stuff to replace the DVR functionality though.

Re: ARP Flood / Broadcast Storm

Ok. So I ran a trace. The only thing that I am seeing is that the box will multicast out the network that it is alive with a few SSDP packets. This I believe is used for "Chromecast" type functionality & mobile app remote functionality. Here's a link to a screenshot of those packets: h...

Re: ARP Flood / Broadcast Storm

Very interesting! In the trace, what address are they looking for when they arp out? I'll have to run a trace on my network and see what it looks like, as I have 3 at home...

Re: Sling TV App Really Needs Work.

Wow. That is very odd behavior indeed. I have the older Roku 2XS model (multiple units) and all of them seem to operate fine w/ SlingTV Channel. Have you created a new thread specifically around the sound issues on the ROKU4? I'll roam the forums tonight to see if anyone else is experiencing those s...

Re: Roku Keeps Rebooting HELP

Another idea would be to blow a "desktop" fan onto the unit. I know that the one I have experience with seems to get pretty warm. I'd be willing to bet that if you can keep it cool it'll stop rebooting. Now, I'm not saying that should be the long-term fix, as to me that points to a design ...

Re: Sling---and its problems

I've experienced these same "lockup & reboot" issues w/ the SlingTV channel on my Roku 2XS boxes. I think it is a memory buffer overrun issue with the channel. Seems that the major issue w/ ROKU is that there is no easy "doorway" to get to the channel developers to offer feed...

Re: ROKU 4 days away?

So, the Roku 4 was announced..what do you think? You gonna pick one up for $129? I'm undecided, but leaning towards yes. My 2XS' are still chugging along, but would love to gain the benefit of the latest & greatest codebase for all channels, and the faster browsing speeds would be a welcome addi...

Re: Roku 2XS BSOD returns

It happened last night*, when (surprise surprise) FTWD was on. It cleared up after about half an hour of starting and stopping. It may be a common occurance and you simply got lucky not seeing it before. It is definitely just temporary. *I'm assuming you mean the app rebooted, not the Roku...if the...

Re: Sling TV App Really Needs Work.

This is a cross-post. Had a lockup / reboot sequence today while watching SlingTV channel. Streaming for about an hour and it locked up... Posted in the regular forum, but wanted to throw it on this thread as well since it was related to SlingTV. http://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=89529...

Roku 2XS BSOD returns | SlingTV Related

Team, I was just watching SlingTV on my ROKU 2XS and about an hour into viewing, the unit BSOD'd (about 7pm EST) like it used to earlier this year when there were some apparent firmware issues. Same behavior as before, where the stream freezes for about 10 seconds, stutters, freezes, then reboots. I...

Re: Sling TV App Really Needs Work.

Agreed. That should not be the case. I have played w/ SlingTV a few times over the last few weeks and have noticed a far better experience than the first go-round. I think that their app has improved on the ROKU (if not in fashion, at least in reliability & function.)
