Yes, you can watch different things on different Rokus.  You can run into bandwidth limitations if your internet connection isn't very fast, but this normally would result in buffering delays, not an exit from the program.  There must be some other reason your program was cut off.

You can also run into limitations imposed by the channel if you try to watch the same channel on more than one unit, as some channels limit how many simultaneous streams they will provide to one account.  For instance my Netflix account limits me to 2 streams at a time.
