roku reboots using netflix play

Our was-working fine Roku now

1) often reboots when I press play and I am using Netflix

2) needed password for Acorn (only one, but never before)

3) seems to work better with NON Netflix channels (other than strange reboot)

This behavior started about a week ago and has been fairly consistent since it started.

Hi @maryann_holme,

With detailed information, we'll be able to better assist you.
