Is it harsh Steve244? That you would invest in a companies flagship product, tell your family and friends about how well it works, then have a software update pretty much brick the device. A large majority of initial XS users have this problem, and with no response from Roku other than it could be a software issue, go buy another roku 3, that one doesn't have the problem for sure!
The old saying fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
I will not set myself up for another "accidental" firmware break of a newer roku device.
I primarily use Hulu, Netflix, Plex, and amazon prime for my media viewing. I bought a device that was capable of all of these things and worked 100%. The company then released a firmware update that made the device 50% usable without a frequent unplanned reboot
A timed reboot
of another device, however cheap it may be, is a work around and not a solution. I will not let my earned money go to waste troubleshooting someone else's device that THEY broke.
If anything is harsh here Steve, it's the way roku has treated its customers. To act as if it's not a problem and to push us to buy another newer product is unacceptable. I would have even accepted a half off coupon as some sort of an apology.
Either way, I have ordered both an amazon fire tv and a google chromecast to fulfill my media needs. Oh look at that, second movie of the night started on plex rebooted, F'in lovely.
It rebooted again and all I did was go back to the same movie in plex right after the reboot
. Tell me how a timed on/off switch would have helped me there Steve.
