It Just arrived yesterday, plugged it in, Upgraded, Endless Loop.
Came here looking for HELP. We're All In This Together
Tried all the fixes mentioned, MANY, MANY, MANY, TIMES. Reset, Re Power, Hot Spot, different provider, multiple HDMI cables I have,
NOTHING HAS WORKED, Still sitting here watch bouncing, R O K U
Ready to sent it back to Walmart and hope the next one works.
One thing I did notice that it didn't do after the first few times of Reset and upgrade, maybe after the 15th time I'm guessing,It's NOW seeing my 5.8 and not just my 2.4, and yes, tried upgrading through both after 30 sec plus reset each time and HotSpot. It's not like I haven't tried.
OH YES, also tried Wired Ethernet and have rebooted my modem.
SO, PLEASE CONFIRM, I should be sending this back for replacement.
Please confirm which model Roku you have. I don't think you have it, but the original Premiere+ 4630 had an SD card slot, and having a card inserted has caused this issue before.
As to your WiFi situation (5.0 GHz, not 5.8), it's possible your router was using a DFS channel, which Roku (and many other devices) doesn't support. When they are set to Auto, they choose their own channel, and it might have selected a DFS channel.
As to your endless loop, it does seem like it has an issue. You mention sending it for replacement, so I'm assuming you have only recently received it. That would probably be the best thing to do. I have a Premiere 3920 that has worked flawlessly, so it's not like they are all trouble.
