Roku has has audio but not video

I get audio but no video on my Roku channel. Today I tried the following:

1:   At about 3PM PST I successfully watched a show on Roku (Video and Audio).
2:  At 10:34PM PST I unsuccessfully watched a show on Roku (no Video, ok Audio).

This has been going on for 3 days. Any idea when it will be fixed?
