Just try SETTINGS/SYSTEM/SOFTWARE UPDATE then once your Roku is updated go to SETTINGS/SYSTEM/POWER/SYSTEM RESTART. This worked for me five weeks ago and I have used this on various TCL ROKU TVs, my Roku Ultra and my sister's ONN Roku TV.
Welcome Techie Tom.
After you have been on Roku's forums for a while you will realize that their canned advice to Turn off, Reset,Reload,Update ad infinitum is just a game. Hundreds of people asking for a fix to their problems (and there are many,Check the forums)
At least you are original suggesting they add a 2" fan to their remote. Got to love that one. How about putting the remote in a ziplock bag and putting it in that ice pitcher that you use to cool whatever you are drinking ?
I just wish I was working for a competitor then maybe my five devices would work...
As long as you are satisfied with the way you have to operate your device then carry on....
Mine just started doing this. I wonder what conditions caused it. If we could identify the cause, maybe it would give them a clue about how to fix it.
It says "subscribe to a thread to be notified of updates." How do you do that?
