HOME - ROKU Problems

Tell us about your ROKU problems.

I bought a ROKU player in April of 2009 and experienced some serious problems about a year later. My experience dealing with the ROKU player and the ROKU support staff irritated me so much I decided to build a website that would allow everyone out there with a similar experience to express their views.

My dog chewed on my remote...now my Roku is useless. Where can I purchase a new one without buying another Roku?    respond to this post

I have read most of the contents and no doubt, Roku has a problem. Netflix is contributing to the problem with the incredible amount of streaming going on. It is jamming the internet in some places. We have hi speed internet but that doesn't help. Reset didn't help. I never got the pairing screen for remotes. Frankly, nothing helps and I will not buy another
one. Roku is uncooperative so I am done.

I got a Brand new Roku 3 and it starts up and turns on for about 3 seconds, and then restarts indefinitely. I've tried the reset button a few times as well as unplugging and plugging in and I've still never seen more than the Startup screen. I'm taking it back and I've already ordered an amazon player instead.    respond to this post

The reset button on my Roku device is broken so now the remote won't reset and neither will the device. Is there another way to fix this?    respond to this post

My roku is suddenly displaying the incorrect aspect ratio. I need it to play in widescreen (and yes I have the roku set to display in 16:9). The homescreen looks fine, but when I go into the Netflix screens or other channels, the display changes, it looks like it's in 4:3 aspect ratio. The top and bottom of the screen is cut-off. If I'm watching anything with captions, I don't see the second line of dialogue. I've had the Roku for a couple of years and this problem just started a few weeks ago. I can't find anything on Roku forums for fixing this problem. I've tried changing the aspect display on the Roku and the television and the problem persists. I've also restarted the Roku. If anyone has any advice, please help!    respond to this post

My wifi Roku, for the past few weeks, hangs up almost every time I watch Netflix, no mater what time of day or day of the week. The movie shows fine on my computer and iPad so know this is not a Netflix issue. I have unplugged and replugged the device many times, without a successful outcome. Occasionally I can get it back online to watch the rest of the film, but there seems to be no rhyme or reason as to when I can and when I have to give up and go watch the film on my iPad.

Is this a software glitch? Do I need to purchase a new unit? Thanks for your assistance as I have been very happy with Roku for the past year plus... until now!    respond to this post

ROKU 2 XS crashes every day when streaming (Netflix) video. Doesn't occur on my ROKU 1. The firmware is so wonky and no one at ROKU seems to care at all. Fed up.    respond to this post
