Roku Ultra 2020 not compatible with 802.3az EEE Green Ethernet
I just upgraded from an Ultra 2018 (4660X) to an Ultra 2020 (4800X). I use wired Ethernet and found that the new Ultra will not connect to my HP1820 managed Ethernet switch. The problem stumped the first level tech via chat and I was told the next level support would contact me via email "within 2 days".
I tried a port on a GS108LP POE switch I have in my home network with no change. But I later found I could get a connection to the network if I chained the new Ultra via a spare netgear GS105 switch.
Today I looked a the configuration on the HP1820 and found the Ultra 2020 will connect to the network if I turn off "Lower Power Idle" (which uses almost 4 watts more than when it is enabled).
Given the variety of devices I have connected to the HP1820 and the fact that the Ultra 2018 always worked I find it difficult to believe this is a hardware issue with the Ultra 2020; the question is will Roku release firmware to address this issue? (Or will I be returning it to amazon?)
