|I am having gravelly sound from streaming hulu+ through my Roku HD, it is fine and then all of a sudden the sound starts crackling and making whatever I am watching impossible to hear. I have hadf my Roku for almost a month, it's is hooked up to a Sanyo LCD television with HDMI. Do you have any ideas why I am having sound issues? respond to this post|
|My ROKU XS had worked great since last fall -- NetFlix, GBTV, Amazon Prime, and many other channels. |
Starting a couple of days back, GBTV stops every couple of minutes to load -- takes a very long time loading. GBTV is really unwatchable now on my ROKU, but still streams good on my PC.
All other channels are streaming great, with no interruptions. NetFlix works perfectly with beautiful HD and good sound.
What is the problem with GBTV on ROKU? As I said, GBTV streams just fine to my PC. respond to this post )

|I used netflix through my wii console and was tired of the constant freezing up and reloading....no matter how far it was from my wireless router, or even direclty connected...it kept doing it. I thought the Roku would be a good solution to this problem. So far I may have eliminated the reloading, but after a little while, I've noticed that when we search through the movies, it's like the memory buffer fills up and it starts freezing up and getting slower and slower and slower and finally it is completely frozen and I have to repower it off and on. This happens 4 or 5 times a week, sometimes 2 times a day. Also a lot of times after a reboot, I get a pink screen, but with sound. I thought it was my HDMI cable, but now I'm on my 3rd cable and it keeps doing it. Sometimes it will fix itself if I walk up and just touch it right on the side with my finger.....not sure if I've made a wise choice or not, because it seems that I've traded 1 problem for 3. Guess at least my movies aren't interupted anymore though. Great idea, just needs work. respond to this post|
|I constantly have to unplug and plug in my Roku player. I spent almost $130 to get the mlb.tv package to watch games on the Roku. I have yet to watch an entire game without a long disruption. Of course Roku blames my connections and wireless setting, so I changed the settings on my router and it still doesn't work well. Is it any wonder they only have a 90 day warranty. I'm so surprised CNET gave it such a good review. respond to this post )|
|My Roku had a message saying that there was an "internal error" with Netflix. I fixed it, with help from you guys, by deleting my Netflix queue. The PROBLEM is that my Netflix homepage now is entirely BLANK - no selections on the Netflix screen at all. Can anyone help me? respond to this post )|
|My husband and I just bought our second Roku XS. We love watching GBTV on it, but have to move the unit to different rooms when we want to watch in different places in our home. I am not able to get my new Roku to set up on GBTV. I will not accept the new code I enter. It figures that it is Friday and GBTV offices are apparently closed for the weekend. respond to this post|

|I am having a very odd problem, my roku connects fine navigates through the menu and channels fine, I can play pandora and angry birds fine full sound and graphics. But anytime I go to play any video netflix, crackle, etc I get a plain purple screen, the audi comes through fine but no video. I have checked my hdmi connections unplugged and reset the roku and nothing seems to make it change. The connection is wirless but signal shows excellent??? respond to this post )|
|I installed the ROKU box I bought on Sunday afternoon (or I tried to)|
It was only 4 min to set up the box – power cord, HDMI cable, batteries in the remote.
Once I started the set up, well ….
It took me 3 hours of playing with my router settings to get the thing to connect to the internet (2.95 hours) and the updated software to load (.05 hour).
It takes 15+ min for the Roku Channel list to load so I could scroll and select my channels – and you cannot set this up via your ROKU account via your computer.
I then selected just Amazon, Hulu and one other *channel* to look at the free content.
It took another 30 min to set up the Amazon Channel just so I could start browsing the content. I gave up on this and I finally selected a 15 min free movie from the Amazon website (via computer) and after an hour I still could not watch it.
Yesterday I tried to watch my free moving and still could not. I beat on the Roku box for almost 3 hours and I have given up. I will sell it to some poor sod on ebay
