I have a Roku 3, less than a year old. Roko plays fine with Amazon, however a large number of Netflix shows only plays video & no sound thru the Roku. Also quality of the video is not crisp on these shows without sound. these same videos play fine with thru my blu ray. So this is a problem between Roku 3 & Nettflix
I've swapped cables, both network & hdmi, powered off unit with no relief.

|Absolute piece of shit. I am on my third replacement. It always breaks. It's Slow. Netflix always has errors. You constantly have to unplug it and then it doesn't necessarily fix the problem. Customer service is a joke. Unreliable piece of shit. Dont waste your money. respond to this post|
|I've got the original wireless Roku unit. It has worked for years but it has gotten extremely slow; slower every year it seems. I was just trying to add a channel to it and it took 10 minutes. The unit is just flat out slow; I don't remember being this disappointed with it when I got it. I found this site looking for information about the issue. I also own an Apple TV which we use in the living room and it's a much better device (read: a lot faster at everything) than the Roku. Too bad it doesn't have a channel store, at least not yet. We'll see what Apple pushes out this year with the supposed refresh. respond to this post|
|Why is it every time I use Hulu it crashes with an error saying something like "Hulu videos may have a playback error, please try again" occasionally when watching any Hulu video content? Is it a random bad video file that is causing this issue? Or is it probably a glitch that occurs on random days when watching Hulu's video content? And also on Netflix it has the same occasional crash even when watching Netflix's video content but this crash is different. It is where the internet may or may not instantly disconnect itself for no reason causing frustration. For all I know why would the network disconnect itself for no reason when not any person disconnected it themselves? It even happens on strong, high and full throttle network connections. What is the problem? Is it simply a glitch or a bug or a combination of both? Both Hulu and Netflix sometimes crash and/or reboots the roku causing frustration but you don't lose anything after a reboot. If roku has a proper update for these issues I pray this issue is fixed and I can at last enjoy long term usage once again. Please fix these issues roku. I love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! respond to this post|

|We bought a ROKU 2500X about a year ago from Walmart. Worked fine for a while, then picture and sound started cutting out. Blinks off and on at random. Doesn't matter what it's doing. Could be Netflix, Crackle, Pandora, it's own Menu, anything. Have done everything known and suggested. Multiple new HDMI cables. Soft and hard reboots. Reset router. Etc. Checked and rechecked TV and ROKU settings. Both set to 720p. 720p is all the ROKU will do. TV will do up to 1080p. |
Info. - ROKU 2500X & Element 32" HDTV HDMI, Model ELCHW321)
The only thing I've done that makes any difference is to unplug the ROKU power supply overnight so it will cool of completely. Then sometimes It will be OK for a while. Sometimes... Or, I can plug the ROKU AV outputs to my TV AV inputs and it works fine. Suck picture but at least it doesn't blink off and on.
So bottom line, is this thing just junk? respond to this post
|I ga\have connection problems for the second night now. This has happened before and normally unplugging the unbit for a minute or so and then it works. Not this time. |
When is this issue goimg to be resolved? respond to this post
|Tonight for the first time while watching hulu, the picture would freeze up on me. It would stall for a couple of minutes and then play for a couple and stall again. I tried resetting the box, unplugging the power....nothing works. Total black screen. Unit is only about 4 months old. So frustrated respond to this post|
|I have 4 Roku units.. They all randomly freeze and reboot during Hulu and Netflix movies. What ticks me off (other then the interruption) is with Hulu you have to go back thru the damn commercials again.|
I have been reading blogs today about this problem and it seems to be a common LONG TERM problem with Roku.
Why isn't it fixed by now? I was reading this issue way back in 2009... respond to this post
