Roku player stops streaming and goes to home screen

Sat Aug 10, 2019 4:53 pm

The Roku player will suddenly stop streaming the show or movie I am watching and goes back to the homesceeen. Is there a fix for this problem? It does it on Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video. I have a Roku 1, is it just getting too old?

Too old? Possible. I can say I haven't seen that behavior on my Ultra, Premiere or my Roku TV. And the last trip I took I used my Stick and it worked fine as well. But others have reported a similar situation, so there might be issues with some players. The Roku 1 was introduced in Sept 2013, so it is getting long in the tooth.

Sounds like what's happening on my express. See my thread below https://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=154690, "express in reboot loop".

Sounds similar, but not the same. You Roku is rebooting, the OP is just getting kicked back to the home screen from the affected channels.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

I posted about this a couple of weeks ago on someone else's thread.  I have the same problem.  I also use a Roku 1.  It happens with YouTube and Emby for me.  I see others have reported the same thing but I have seen no solutions offered from experts, usually just comments like "doesn't happen to me... wierd"

I think the same issue as this one https://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=146890&start=15&hilit=youtube+streaming

It has been like this over 5 months for me but no solution at all! I hate to say that, I end up moving away from Roku now! My main usage of TV is streaming Youtube and I cannot use because kick off every few minutes!

by the way, mine are only 8 month old, I bought in Dec 2018...it happens 2 months after I got them.
