CBSN

Tue Aug 25, 2015 8:51 am

This isn't a problem so much as it is a nuisance.. There are times on CBSNews that it will be going along fine and then switch back and repeat about thirty seconds to a minute of what was just broadcast.. Then it might flip and go forward into the next story or flip back and do that fairly regular and sometimes I will sit through it and other times, like last night, where I won't.. And I was wondering if anyone else has that happen?? I do notice it on other news sites like ABC as well.. anything that has a live feed (continuous "live" feed) on the news channels like that.. Is it my box or does this happen to anyone no matter what their box is.. Mine is a HD model (hard to call it old since it is going to be three years old this holiday season) but three years old is bordering on antique in this day in age of buy update to new the latest because that's just what you do..

Are you sure the Roku has an "Excellent" connection to the internet source, if you're using Wifi? You may be having some buffering side effects.

Best is wired, but otherwise a WiFi signal showing to be "Excellent" should work without so many buffering issues.

Also, does it only happen when you first start the stream, or continue to occur at any time? Sometimes, there may be initial buffering, but that usually clears up in under a minute.

Usually happens in the first five minutes of watching.. It's like a time warp thing.. I can see that issue happening I guess and yes our internet is HORRIBLE at best.. My signal from the router varies greatly from excellent to good and poor.. More good and poor than excellent.. Thankfully it doesn't happen like that on Netflix or any entertainment site like that.. Weather Nation can do that once in a great while but almost never no matter how the signal is.. I don't have a choice on being hard wired to the internet, that is the old HD box, it is wi-fi exclusively.. Thanks for your help..

Some apps handle bandwidth issues better than others. All depends on the app and who made it.

CBS News opened a case for me and assigned it a number. That was a week ago.

Would someone at Roku please tell CBSN to fix this problem?

I have at times experienced this with other apps, not CBSN however. In fact it's one of the reasons I like CBSN so much. When it does happen I chalk it up to buffering. I will also say it happens lots less since I upgraded my internet speed a couple months ago.

I observed this problem from time to time with CBSN but not in quite a while now. Oddly this morning CBSN is down hard for me. I can't get it to pull the live stream.

CBSN Live is still half size and always so unless I change a correct setting on the Roku to the wrong setting, then it is full screen. CBSN should support the correct Roku setting, as other channels do and as CBSN used to. CBS News Support has opened a case but is not communicating with me.

Still working fine (and full screen) here. No special settings. I go to CBSN on my Roku3 (4200x) and it works just fine. I don't doubt that you are having problems, but it is definitely NOT universal.

It is not universal because we are using different Roku settings. There's an issue with CBSN Live and the Roku setting that I'm supposed to use for my TV. All other channels work with that setting, just not CBSN Live. What would you do if CBSN didn't fully support your Roku?

I found my problem. I have two load balanced internet connections. One of my modems was failing so it was not CBSN at all.

Watch something else. It is NOT a paid channel and I don't know that they are under any imperative to fully support your Roku. It is a wonderful bonus and I have greatly enjoyed having it since it showed up, but I do not feel entitled to a full size live stream of CBSN. I sure do enjoy it though, since I cut the cord almost five years age. :)
