After the 9.3 update for Roku TV, myself and other users of Plex and Emby have noticed a specific issue when playing live MPEG2 streams. The video freezes, but the audio continues to play. The stream will eventually fail altogether. This is a very random issue; sometimes it happens after 5 minutes, other times I can be watching for well over an hour until it occurs.
Here are links to threads in the Plex and Emby forums:
I'm wondering if this is something that'll ever get fixed... I encounter this at least a few times a week and it's a bit inconvenient since it forces some sort of interaction when a frame freezes but the audio keeps playing. It doesn't really tend to fix itself after a reasonable time and I have to stop and resume streams again. It's problematic while we watch TV, which is something I don't expect to need to have to interact with the TV to keep playing...
This is absolutely unbearable now because it happens constantly while my wife is trying to watch wheel of fortune. Too bad, I like the roku but this is too obnoxious to keep putting up with. On the channel when my wife tries watching wheel, it happens at least 10 times and it's a battle to keep hitting pause/play ff/rewind to get past the bad frames.
Probably going to put a fire stick on it and get over it. Brilliant.
