I received my Streaming Stick on Friday. Finally got it working Friday night but wasn't able to dig in and watch it until last night where I set up some channels. This morning I turn on TV and see only the word "Roku" with each letter sort of bouncing. Nothing else worked. The remote is useless, I unplugged it and re-plugged it. Same thing. I tried a different HDMI port, same thing. Really disappointed as this is my first Roku experience and it hasn't been a successful one. Hope that others aren't experiencing the same issues.
Apparently your TV turns the power off to the HDMI port when you turn it off, so the Roku has to reboot when you turn it back on, and the remote also has to be re-paired with the stick.
Using the external power source for the Stick will probably solve the problem.
No, I don't work for Roku.
