Re: Live TV Pause "USB too slow"

I too have that particular SanDisk Cruzer USB brand and 16G size which I probably bought because it was the least expensive at Walmart at the time. I used it successfully a few years ago, but took it off as it's use cancels the ability to switch between two channels with the remote button, and I like to switch channels to avoid the commercials. So, this week I hooked up the USB  again and it got the "too slow" error message even after two or tree tries to get it to work. Then, I waited a few hours and tried it again and it worked normally this time. I'm not sure the "too slow" message is related to internet wifi speed or just a glitch. But, I'd suggest trying it many times at different times of day and see what happens instead of buying a new one. And if you want the feature to switch between two channels just remove the USB temporarily. Video demo of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1SES2wSGZ8

Re: Live TV Pause "USB too slow"

I know this is an old thread, but recently ran into this on a new USB.  Take the USB out and use your computer to format the stick to NTFS.  You have to re-format it again on the Roku, but it should work.

Re: Live TV Pause "USB too slow"

After countless failed attempts trying "solutions" from the internet, yours was finally helpful. I disconnected everything from my wifi except the tv while it was reformatting. It was finally successful. 

if someone in the future is reading this and this doesn't work, i also reformatted the USB to NTFS along the way as well. Not sure if that was relevant or not.

Re: Live TV Pause "USB too slow"

I tried a couple of 128gig usb drives both came back with too slow message. 

Purchased a SanDisc ultra flair 32gig 3.0 130MB/s for £6 on eBay and it worked straight out of the packet.

I just when on free view selected a channel pressed pause and the tv did the rest.
