Thank you for clarifying in the last post. This is a small apartment with only one TV and not very many hookup options. My network hardware is all close together. The Roku 2 is on a stereo cabinet to the right of the stand where my TV sits, but about 6 inches above the top of the TV. Even if I could move it to the other side of the TV, to the left, it would sit on top of my laser printer. We cannot do that. Just now since my last post, I turned my TV on. With the remote I could only move one notch to the right highlighting my first icon for the app Netflix. To the extreme right I can see the promotional area advertising "Good Bones" on HGTV. The last time I saw that area it was blanked grey with "Roku" in the middle, which often means that it disconnected from the wireless network. Now, I am assuming that it is connected, but as the last member clarified, I cannot scroll anymore to where I can check the connection. Unless someone knows of a easier solution, when I get some real work done on this computer, requiring so much maintenance that I am not getting my money's worth, I will shut down, powercycle everything and restart, removing the batteries from the remote first and replacing them as the last step. After watching so many YouTube videos repeating the same solution, someone suggested powercycling the router in addition to the other steps. I may as well do the whole system. These are fairly new batteries; but maybe they took a beating. As last resort, I will try brand new ones and see what happens. Being disatisfied over having bought a new remote that is worse than the one that I thought died, I investigated more on the Internet. I tried other means of powercycling, by disconnecting the high definition chord, by using the reset button without the high definition chord and with both that chord and the power chord out and then back in. Now I am going through setup again. At first I could not tell if the new remote was pairing. It is still just as frozen as ever. I switched back to the previous remote, which is more reliable but still freezes at the wrong time. Now, I am stuck on the screen where we are suppose to set the level of definition. Now, I am going to have to wait to do that complete powercycle of the network. The Roku device itself went down, no light at all. My TV says "Roku" all over the screen in purple letters.
