Hi Folks, I am having some buffering problems with my brand new Roku Express. This model does Not have a input from ethernet. My Vizio TV does, however. If I connect an internet cable to my TV will this help the Roku from buffering as much? In other words, will I get a more consistent signal? Thanks so much.
Thank you guys for your input. I had a conversation with my cable company today. I increased my mps to 200 from 60. They tell me that should Definitely make a big change in my streaming of movies and live TV. If, I still have an issue I will buy the Roku Ultra which has the input for the ethernet cable. Doing that, would Ultimately solve my problem. Thanks again, Harold.
Thanks, guys. The thinking for getting the Roku Ultra was in effect for the ethernet connection. I many times have two Rokus on at the same time, which the tech folks from my cable service tells me Would help with the buffering issue. They also did ( of course) confirm the using an ethernet cable to my router would most definitely solve that problem. I have as of today brought my cable boxes and wires back to my cable company. In effect saving me approx. $50.00 a month in fees. I will check out the router thing involving my two internet speeds, the 2.4 and the 5 MHz speed. Thanks again, Harold.
Thanks, ATC for clearing that up for me. I will attempt to switch channel of my Netgear router to 5GHZ. If THAT doesn't solve my problem, I will be buying the Roku Ultra. Then get an ethernet cable and hard wire my Roku. My Netgear Nighthawk route is a story in itself. I'm....working on it though. . Thanks, Harold.
