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.
I have my computer (home-built) and desk next to the TV in the living room (TCL r625) , both connected to the same router, plugged into different circuits on the apartment breaker
Whenever I shut my computer down, the Spectrum app and ONLY the Spectrum app stops dead and hangs on a black screen, and won't continue streaming until the app is restarted. The Roku TV/Menu will continue running and is able to return to the home screen every time. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+ and the Roku Media player do not exhibit this behavior. This fact should eliminate RF/ESD interference as the issue as it's highly app specific.
I've tried both wireless and wired to the same router, with the same result.
I've eliminated the router as the issue, as the Spectrum app will continue streaming cached data if the router is unplugged, but will stop dead as soon and black-screen as soon the PC is shut down whether the router is powered on or not.
Any help or even a sanity check at this point would be much appreciated.
Re: Spectrum app stops when computer is shut down.
No. The modem and router are both mine. Spectrum's equipment sucks, and I don't wanna pay another $10/mo for **bleep** equipment. I've already checked the router for any port conflicts too. Not a one to be found.
