Roku Express+ Connection Reliability

A few months back i bought a Roku Express+ replacing my Roku HD 2500X.  It seemed to work fine for a few days and then the connection issues started.  When I turn on my TV the Roku turns on and sometimes it will connect the first time, other times I will have to reset the the Roku anywhere from 5-10 times for it to connect.  When we hook up the the Roku HD 2500X we have no issues at all with connection.  It connects the first time every time.   Not sure what to do but ask for some suggestions.

Thanks

Re: Roku Express+ Connection Reliability

I assume your Roku is connected via USB to the USB jack on your TV.. I suggest not doing that. Plug the USB cable into a wall outlet instead. That way the Roku isn't shutting down everytime you TV does.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.
