Paramount + no longer working after Roku software 11 update

My Roku updated to software version 11 (on it's own) on April 20th.  Since then, Paramount + won't play.  I can open it, pick the show and episode and it pulls up the thumbnail image of the show and the "loading" bar on the bottom while the audio plays in the background for maybe a minute or so, before it crashes and takes me back to the Roku home screen.  I have restarted, deleted the channel, then restarted and added it back, checked for updates on Paramount +.  Nothing.  It still works on the Roku TV in my bedroom and on my phone, so I know it's neither an internet issue or an issue on Paramount's end.

@Brooklynn72180  Try going into settings and update system.  Might not have gotten a clean update.

@HDMIGuy  I've tried that a few times, sorry, I forgot to mention that.  It keeps telling me system is up to date.

Re: Paramount + no longer working after Roku software 11 update

I realized when I posted all my devices info it never actually posted.  I just went to Paramount to get the error tracking, and low and behold it's playing. I have no idea why, but I did have to log back into Paramount, so something seems to have happened.  Either way I'm happy it's working.  @riceas just keep trying and hopefully yours will come back soon.
