Here we are five months after this bug popped up and a full month after Shawn claimed they were working on this, and still nothing.
Can anyone who has gotten OS 9 comment on whether this bug persists in that update?
My friend is in the market for her first streaming device, she asked me the other day about my Roku. For the first time that I can remember, I told her not to bother with Roku because of some of the inexcusable bugs that have popped up in recent firmware updates. The private listening would be something she'd use often, and I simply can't recommend a device with faulty firmware that is quickly approaching half a year with no resolution. So, she'll probably go with the Fire stick instead. I'm sure Roku isn't crying over the lost revenue from one person not buying a Stick+, but perhaps they should be if too many of us once-loyal Roku customers get turned off and start recommending other brands to our friends and family.
I am not experiencing the issue with v9.x
Of course, I didn't experience the issue with 8.x either.
The Fire Stick is a good device. Of course, you don't have the headphones option, but as long as that's not important ...
