Well clemdog it depends on whom you ask ... but to put it in general terms some folk have problems with tv A or receiver B or the unit waking or sound issues and so forth and some are having no problems at all.There is not a single catch all problem that every one is having.When you read a thread on these problems it stacks up and about 2 pages in it quits being a bug thread but a "the R 4 is junk " page which you know isn't the case ( at least not for you) and if left to run it's course there would soon be reports of R4 jumping out of the entertainment cabinet to kick poor old granny in the knee ( ok I may be exaggerating here) but you get the gist of what I am saying.
I believe that most of the bug reports can be fixed by firmware .... when that firmware will be pushed is up to Roku
I would like to know about a single one of these things that wakes up properly.
Well you asked for it and here we have one. I am running version 7.1.0 build 4062-17 I have the following options checked 1 touch play and System standby.
When i press the home button on the ROKU remote it wakes up my ROKU switches on my AVR, switches on my TV using CEC HDMI and also select the correct input on the AVR. Now I must admit this is something that takes patience, because the delay between pressing the Home button and all those things happening is at least 30 seconds. It just works once you wait 30 seconds. I have never had an issue with it. When I am finished using the ROKU I always press the Home button before switching to another input on my AVR and it will switch off after a certain number of seconds. I would agree that 30 seconds is a long time but I just got used to it.
I am sure there are problems out there. Fortunately, I am one of those who do not have any issues not even an overheating one. I think one must remember that people generally come to forums like this because they have problems. The silent majority never use forums and just use their device. There are even a few users who make it a habit to post negative views in every ROKU 4 Forum. There is even one posting on this thread who does not have a ROKU 4 and never had one. His sum total of experience is trying to help his neighbour with his but he always active in every ROKU 4 thread with very negative views.
I do not use Netflix and therefore would not be familiar with the complains I see in that area. However, I use Plex, Amazon, NBA, Utube and a few other apps on a daily basis without problems.
