Re: roku set up

Hi @gister545,

Thanks for the post.

Have you tried performing a factory reset on your Roku device to see if that resolves the issue you are experiencing?
For more information about how to perform a factory reset, visit our Support page here: How do I factory reset my Roku® streaming device?

Thanks,

Mary

Re: roku set up

Hi @gister545,

Thanks for the update.

How are you powering the device? Is it plugged into the TV USB port, or is it plugged into the wall outlet with the provided cables? In addition, have you tried using another HDMI port on your TV as well as trying your device on another TV to see if you are seeing the same issue?

Thanks,

Mary
