service stops and goes to menu

When I am watching a channel - Netflix, Prime or HULU the program shuts off and screen goes back to menu (screen goes black for a couple of seconds) 

Seems like it is set on a time to shut down.  Sometimes this happens once an hour. 

I have an older Roku 2500X

thanks in advance

Re: service stops and goes to menu


Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that you have a much older device.

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?

If you would be interested in upgrading your device, we would be happy to see what we can do to help get you back up and running.

Please feel free to send me a PM with your Roku account email address and the serial number of your Roku device (printed on the side/back of the device) and I'll have our support team reach out directly to assist you further.
