Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
MSNBC won't always load, flashes reauthenticate with code but only for a second then goes back to Roku home. many times as MSNBC is playing it cuts out screen goes black comes back in a few minutes. Sometimes an error comes up that says Code: An unexpected problem (but not server time out or HTTP error) has been detected. MSNBC is the only station this happens.
Try removing the channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the channel back once more.
I am having this problem also. What do you mean by removing a channel. Do you mean Roku Channel, or Spectrum Channel or just MSNBC? We also have this problem with CNN, but not Fox News. Would I be bit paranoid to think that "left wing" stations were being censored?
I found the problem. After much head scratching I checked the signal strength on the TV. It was poor. I ended up pulling a cable from the main house and installing a new router as an access point. The setup was especially easy as the new router had this as part of its setup menu. Problem solved and no more issues with the channels cutting out.
