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.
Interestingly enough, I brought up my ROKU (unumbered, so must be a 1) and it plays just as nicely as can be, not stopping or hanging up at all. Sometimes I get the Wifi wheel spinning, but that's from the I-beams in the basement ceiling. In and out of ads as nice as can be!
Hey Roku... are your developers really this inept? This has been an issue for more than a year!!! It's time to hang up the "thanks for letting us know... we will pass it along" **bleep**. It's time to have some respect for your users and fix this extremely irritating issue! Or, at the very least, be honest and tell us why it isnt being addressed. This issue basically makes VOD useless. FIX IT!!
Same issue here. Seems like it happen more now than before. Given that it's not clear who's at fault here and that the issue has been around for months and months, I'd recommend staying away from a Roku and instead get an Apple TV or Amazon Fire stick.
After reading this long thread, very disappointed that Roku and YTTV can’t solve. Having same issue with YTTV trial this week. Seems like YYTV works on all platforms (ipad, firestick, smart tv, etc) so think this is a Roku problem. Will buy a firestick.
I have a Roku Ultra and a second TV with Roku built in. Both freeze up when watching VOD on YTTV. It happens most often at the end of the second set of ads. Happens ONLY on VOD that has ads. CBS VOD is the worst. HOWEVER if I access YTTV via my Samsung smart TV then no freezing of VOD. SO definitely appears to be a Roku issue.
Come on Rolku fix this soon or you will lose this customer for life!
This Ad Freeze problem is getting worse!! Was looking into upgrading our Roku players with newer versions but see from all the posts this would not help, so will be forced to go with Fire sticks as I do not want to give up YouTube TV. Too bad someone at Roku does not acknowledge this issue.
