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.

Just purchased a brand new Roku3 for my dad's birthday. Cannot do 1080P mode because apparently it needs a special HDMI cable, also cannot play Netflix, Amazon Prime, or DramaFever consistently in HD even on a wired 40Mb connection.    respond to this post

i have a roku 3 and i just tried to contact the custumer sopport at 1-888-600-7658. I got someone in India and
when i requested a person in the states he first tells me they had no one and when pressed he said they had a
support in CA. and put me on hold. Then he came back and wanted more information so he could help me.
This is the first time i have had to use their customer support and if this is the case i will contact the BBB and the
attorney general in my state to find out what is going on here. Has anyone else run into this problem?    respond to this post

We just bought a Roku stick, and we didn't even have it for a day when the tv screen started going blank -not just while watching things through Roku but while using the computer, the DVD player, regular tv, while the stick was still plugged in... There was still audio, and when we shut the tv off then on again, the picture would come back...for about a minute then go blank again. Thought it was the tv on the fritz, until we removed the Roku stick from the HDMI port... the tv works fine without it. Any ideas why this is happening? And is it worth dealing with or should we just return it?    respond to this post

Netflix just randomly locked up the roku but it didn't reboot the roku. What keeps this problem from occurring again? and why would movies lock up devices at random like this? I have never had any problems with movies occasionally freezing up a device like this. If it happens again, then a factory reset or a "home 5 times, rewind twice, fast forward twice and up button" reboot reset to fix it but you don't lose anything if you just reboot the roku's system and the other reset, the factory reset removes all saved content and allows you to add back on manually after a factory reset. But I hope the movie I just saw does not freeze up the device again or it may be replaced or never used again. But please rectify this issue Netflix or Roku and I shall never have another situation again. Thank you.    respond to this post
