Solution to blurry playback picture: In your Roku settings, go to "display types" and change to 720.
Background from non-tech guy: [...] The problem turned out to be the signal from the station. [...] but if the signal isn't strong enough, it doesn't matter.
Same problem here with my Roku SS+. This is my second Roku streaming device. And it is the 2nd one that will go in the TRASH. I will buy an Apple TV and leave my Roku problems where they belong.......... in the trash!
I've had a ROKU since 2013. I was starting to have trouble with the old one on YoutubeTV Live, so I replaced it with a new express. Problem I have now is that I have to restart it when I turn it on after it has been turned off. I've never had to do this before so it is a little frustrating. I just wondered if I was doing something wrong. hopefully this won't continue to happen.
I had a 2016 Roku Stick. No problems whatsoever. I got an email from Roku saying, we see you are using a "classic roku player that is many generations behind", and basically told me to get a new one because after Nov 15 there would be no more updates or support. There was a link to "upgrade" to a 2019 Roku Express for a discounted rate. The total was $24. I have had great experiences with Roku so I bought it and plugged it in. I also threw away the box (big mistake!). This thing is GARBAGE. Completely unwatchable between the pauses for buffering and the blurry, pixelated picture quality. I have tried setting it to 720 with zero change. I am so pissed that I can't return this piece of trash. The problem is NOT my connection or the channels. If I plug in my stick it once again works perfectly except for not allowing me to have Apple TV. I don't know what to do. Do I throw even more of my hard earned cash at a more expensive Roku product, or cut my losses with the company and go with an Apple or Amazon product? Roku definitely led me to purchase this piece of poo. I was naive enough to trust the company's recommendation , and the trust is kind of broken.
