Re: Hulu Live going back to home screen.

My advice try free you tube live trial. Does it happen there. I’m not sure if this is a Roku or Hulu issue

@ksgemini

I can confirm that it absolutely does not happen on YouTube tv on my roku 4k express. I cancelled Hulu and Hulu live tv last night and made the switch. It costs less, has more channels and ran live tv for hours this morning without canceling to the home screen. Got tired of Hulus consistent technical issues after being a subscriber for several years.

Same here besides the back to home, I had periods where it would loop the same few seconds for hours. Sometimes on one station sometimes all 12th day no live tv in 2 years sent me to you tube no issues and dvr better

at one point I went month without dvr at all and Hulu walks u thru same meaningless attempted fixes every darn time u call!

I too can confirm that the Roku device is not the culprit. When I switched from Hulu to YouTube TV. The issue immediately went away, and I don't have to pay for the Disney+ bundle any longer, which is an added bonus.

Same problem but when I activate Hulu through the app on my TV rather than Roku it works fine.

So my tv(sony) the same app works fine.

I just pulled out an old Firestick. It's working fine. In fact the audio lag I was getting on the roku I dont get on firestick. Only thing left is a gender changer for HDMI cable.  I'll connect the Firestick to the HDMI cable I use on the Roku. If it plays fine then it's definitely the Roku hardware

Re: ROKU reverts to Home Screen near top of the hour. How do I fix this?

Jump to solution

This is also happening to our various ROKU devices.  Fox news channel only and always at 3 minutes past the top of the hour.  Does not happen on any other channel.

What did you switch to?  I'm fed up with this issue.  Thinking Sling.
