Why ROKU Problems exists:
After many years of horrible performance from ROKU (or ROFU as we call them), we decided that it was time for the public to have a forum. There is a lot of negative commentary about ROKU problems on the Internet, but we felt it should all be consolidated on one website.
I am trying to watch regular tv. I switch the input to “tv” but after a few seconds it keeps switching back to roku!
I have rows of dotte lines on my Sharp 4k TV when streaming 4k videos from my Roku Ultra. The lines only appear with 4K content. I have a Onkyo AV receiver.
When trying to watch CBS access the message spins unfortunately an error has occurred during play back please try again. Every time?
Sound cuts out during ad breaks and does not come back until rewinding to rebuffed. This happens on multiple channels such as food network and ABC for example.
you tube goes back to home page
netflicks plays some video but not others. won’t play Amazon. both netflix and amazon played fine until a week or so ago. unplugged. trying rebooting. nada. 🙁
WWE Network is coming up with network error. Other apps working correctly
Just stopped working on both tvs internet and the wifi working fine in home but Roku units3 fast flashing lights and cannot connect. Very frustrating
I’m watching NHL or Netflix channels and it stops playing. It will play 20-30 minutes and then it quits and goes back to home screen. I’ve unplugged it and waited 10 minutes, still same problem. Getting old!
I have subscribed for almost one year to asiancrush but can not get any movies
Youtube will play about 90 seconds of a video, then kick back to the home screen. I tried deleting and re-installing the channel with no luck. Not having this issue with any other channel.
Roku 4 will not stop running
SHOUTcast on ROKU3 just buffers then plays music for 30 seconds then this error comes up “Unfortunately, an error has occurred during playback”
Also roku locks up and reboots itself frequently, also audio out of sync daily until it’s restarted/reboot, seems like roku is very buggy, even after updates and restars, even refresh my modem and still have many problems with roku
YouTube videos play for about 1 to 3 minutes, then I get kicked back out to the Roku home screen. Extremely annoying. I have excellent signal strength, and every other channel works perfectly (Netflix, Amazon, Cnet, etc.).
When we start to play Netflix it will play for about a minute or two and then fo back to the home screen and no on touches any buttons
I have 3 live TV channels that make a horrible noise. It just started today and we got the fire stick about 2 weeks ago.
The noise is so bad there is nothing else you can hear but the ratcheting-like sound.
Netflix kicking me out of app, Netflix shows and movies not loading and/or streaming, HULU suddenly saying the internet connection is poor when it is fine! Just waited on hold for customer support for 15 minutes with no answer! I’m getting the feeling buying roku tv’s was a scam. This is only the beginning of my getting this out there. What company sells tv’s for hundreds of dollars that DONT actually work?!
Roku Express stops in the middle of playing a youtube video. No sound nor video signal to HDMI connected set. Green light on Roku blinks on remote keypress. Roku is responding silently and without video signal to keypresses. Switch HDMI inputs, and normal TV tuner, and go back to the Roku HDMI, still nothing.
The video and sound may come back, and the Roku will be on the last screen (Home) pressed on the remote(in at least once instance).
