The Roku 3 has proven tremendously disappointing over the last few months, with severe connectivity issues. Let me be clear, however, that this is not a 014 connectivity problem that seems so prevalent.
What happens is that my Roku will say it is connected to my Wifi (with an 'excellent 'connection, no less), but then nothing will work. Apps will not load or, when they do, the video will not play. I've seen that spinning circle of white dots on HBOGo for more time than I care to mention. Roku support has generally been useless. I put in some DNS numbers per their instructions and that briefly made it play better, but it is back to being mediocre per usual.
Normally I would be inclined to blame something like this on Comcast, the most wretched of all the wretched companies out there. But HBOGo, Netflix, pandora, etc. all play fine through the Wifi on computers, phones, and tablets in my apartment. It is only the Roku that won't work.
Are there any thoughts out there? Every time I try looking for troubleshooting ideas, I end up on a page discussing problems with connecting the Roku, which isn't really my problem.
Thanks for any help.
