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.
Cannot play Crackle channel on Roku 2. The show plays for a bit then error message pops up saying there is an error and cannot continue playing. What? I am trying to watch Comedians in Cars. Sometimes the sound cuts out. Happens all times of the day or night.
However, the stupid Acura TV commercials play fine…loud and clear. Use to be able to play Crackle problem free. Jeeze.
My plug in device is not working
Youtube channel started acting up yesterday on my TCL Roku Tv. Tried removing and then adding the channel back but I couldn’t and now continually get an “insufficient storage” error code. I tried rebooting my tv, router and doing a system update all to no avail. My Roku app on my phone shows the YouTube channel still being installed which it is not. Tried removing and adding it back from the app also with no success. I also removed a number of channels in an attempt to add back the YouTube channel which didn’t work either. I can install other channels with no problem. The issue seems limited to the YouTube channel. Anyone else experiencing this and does anyone know of a solution?
I love my routine. Has worked great for over a year. But in the last few days youtube just spins and won’t load. Netflix and Amazon are working great. Anyone have a solution???
Since yesterday, February 21, 2017, my YouTube app has not been working well. It opens but instead of being taken to the “home” page with the thumbnails of videos it stays on the YouTube loading screen. I can get to the thumbnails page by pressing the directional button but upon selecting and playing a video the screen is black with sound only. Upon pressing the directional button again the video does show up but with the time bar and other video thumbnails at the bottom. Pressing the directional button sometimes does but doesn’t always work to get rid of the time bar and other video thumbnails. All other streaming apps I use on roku (Sling, Amazon, Netflix) work just fine.
Every time I try to use ESPN or NBC Sports I have to get a new verification code. How can I fix this?
I hear sound but no picture
My roku keeps crashing – this isn’t something that’s happened until the last couple of days, but it keeps stopping and having to completely reboot when I’m on either Hulu or Netflix.
Love the product! The only problem is with youtube on Rok. When I am trying to type using my iPhone, nothing shows up in the search window. The feature works with every other Roku app (Netflix, HBO, etc.) but not on youtube.
It just stopped working. I’ve had it since Xmas 2016. Cannot determine why.
numerous interruptions in programing, get the infamous “spinning wheel” on roku but not on any other providers
Sports Illustrated Channel won’t load videos.
My Roku 2 is about a year old and just stopped displaying video. Kind of a drag having to replace it already!👎🏼Boo!!
Bravo Now app always has the uh-on an error has occurred. What gives?
The News function on the main Roku screen hasn’t worked for months. The news categories seem to be updated periodically but there are no videos to play. Does anyone know what the problem is?
NBC Live Extra and WatchESPN are not streaming anything. Other apps like Fox Sports Live, BTN, FX Now and other apps that live stream have no issues, but those two, my most used, do not work. They work on my computer, my iPhone and my Samsung Tablet, just not my Roku TV.
Bravo is not allowing activation on the site. The page says its not available.
Bought WWE channel for my uncle. It works with other media (computer and cell phone) but is not working on the Roku device. I logged the account information into the channel but if I select a episode or anything, it asked for another account. I am a subscriber to WWE. So I tried troubleshooting; deleted the account, rebooted the roku, deleted and redownloaded the channel, and reactivated the account. Still having the same issues.
intermittent audio on my Roku 4 – Netflix, Youtube, CBS….drops for about 5 seconds every 5-10 minutes
Youtube app just became buggy as all get out. Roku2, supposedly with Roku 3 processor in it. I have 2 of these units. Youtube is my most used app. Screens hanging on load. You have to press a button on the remote to get picture to appear. Videos appear to be stuck loading, but pressing up arrow or something will make video play. Does it on both my units. Roku support said to uninstall and re-install youtube app. So far this has not fixed the issue. Annoyance factor at level 8.
