I leave one Roku on continuously from roughly 6am in the morning till 8pm at night every day and in the last year it has not spontaneously rebooted while streaming content from Netflix or Amazon or other online sites. On that Roku I watch roughly three to four hours (sometimes five hours) of content during the day and or evening. No spontaneous rebooting happens.
Using the stock original Roku game remote. Using the default screen saver. Use the default background setting. Both Roku's are connected to their respective TV's via HDMI. Both Roku's are set to 720p for display. Rarely if ever use the Roku app on my phone or tablet, use the Roku remote almost exclusively. The power supply for both Roku's is FA-0521500SUA and were the original power supplies that shipped with these Roku's when I received them a few years ago. Power supply specs - Input: 100-240VAC 50/60H 0.25A Output: 5.0V 1.5A Efficiency Level: V.
The more data points presented perhaps the more information that will be useful for the Roku tech support folks to figure out why some Roku 2XS's are spontaneously rebooting and hopefully provide a fix or at least an explanation of why it happens to some and not others.
It occurs to me that a "workaround" is a cheap timer that cuts power for a period each night. I was wondering if "upgrading" to Roku 3 was a way out of reboot-nightmare, but a timer for $5 would be a lot more cost effective. Just set it to be off for 30 minutes or so in the wee hours when no one should be stirring. Not even a mouse.
