Playback Issues only on The Roku Channel

I have Roku 2  box. All channels work just fine except The Roku Channel. Most movies will play on this channel, but a handfull will not. I press play and it just loops back to the particular move introduction screen. These movies just happen to be movies I would really like to watch. Examples are 'Children of The Corn' and 'Hellraiser'

Re: Playback Issues only on The Roku Channel


Thanks for the post.

We're unable to replicate the issue you are experiencing. 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.

Does this clear up the issue you are seeing? Please keep us posted.
