I have Roku 3910rw (Express+). Mostly the problem is when I try to use Pluto's on demand. Titles will be choppy, freezing from the start. They may play smoothly for a minute or two then the app crashes. Sometimes it freezes when I am looking through the guide. I need to unplug/plug in Roku to make anything work. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling Pluto app but it didn't help.
I have no problem playing on other services. Just Pluto.
It seems Pluto no longer has customer service or a way to contact anymore either.
There have been people that have tried connecting a composite device to a component input. I wanted to clarify what you actually had. I don't know you, and didn't know where you fell in the spectrum regarding knowing what hookups will work. Nothing more.

Thanks for the help. It seems to have worked. All but screensaver was Roku default. I changed that and removed a bunch of screensavers that must have been installed when a channel was added. I may retry the screensaver, though I did suspect something was off about it. Playback seems fine. It still struggles like it never did before with cueing or even 15 sec. jump but it hangs on.
I wonder if I have too many channels. I have had apps like Sling and Disney+ state they couldn't open because not enough memory, or something to that effect. It was rather random though.
Any insights as to why my Windows 10 pc won't cast to my tv or Roku but will cast to my Roku if I right click a video, such as on Youtube?
