New Roku Streambar keeps rebooting randomly

I have a new Roku Streambar and it will randomly freeze, and then reboots.  This has happened at least 5 times since I got the Steambar on 10-19-2020.  However, most of those have happened in the past two weeks.  Otherwise, the unit seems to be working fine.  I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this or if Roku is aware of this issue.

Re: New Roku Streambar keeps rebooting randomly

I also just received the newest streaming sound bar. Just recently the unit has been resetting on its own. The show I’m watching freezes, then about 20 seconds later the unit restarts and brings up the ROKU initializing screen.  I don’t have to do passwords, the unit just resets. 

Model: 9102X. Serial#YL00EA156148

Device ID: 2A108E156148.

Software 9.4.0 Build 4190-95

@Rolf838 

Thanks for the post.

Can you please provide us the following information:
-Roku device model
-serial number
-device ID
-software OS/version
(these can all be found in Settings > System > About)
-does this issue occur on a specific channel? if so, what channel and what version/build is the channel (this can be found be selecting the channel on the Home screen and pressing the * button)
-tracker ID when this issue occurs (when you see this issue occur, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times)

Once we have this information we will be able to pass it along to the appropriate team to investigate further.

Yes, I received a Streambar from Amazon a couple of days ago and it's doing the same thing. It drops the wireless signal a few times a day. After reading through the Amazon reviews I've noticed a couple of other people who are having the same problem.

Re: New Roku Streambar keeps rebooting randomly

I have noticed that the issue occurs mainly when using “PLUTO” streaming service

Re: New Roku Streambar keeps rebooting randomly

I watch CBSN a lot in the morning.. I'll have to switch to Pluto for that and see if I can duplicate it.  I know it happened once while I was using Tablo cause it happened during Jeopardy which is the only time it annoyed me.  Smiley Happy
