I have two Roku Ultras, one running 10.5 the other still running 10.0 (did not update). The device running 10.0 works fine, responds appropriately to remote commands. The newer Ultra, with 10.5 update, has lost the ability to stay connected to a remote, either the actual remote or the remote app. I have tested both repeatedly. The only solution, is to unplug the Ultra from power, take the batteries out of the remote, wait 10+ seconds, plug power back in and reinsert batteries. This works until you disconnect from the Ultra (device). I have a sometimes workaround, use your television remote to change sources, turn on the Roku (the remote does this much) choose the HDMI connected to your Roku using your TV remote, and then the Roku remote seems to work for that session. However, one caveat, sometimes the screen is not correct, we only get a small picture up in the left hand corner, have to start process all over. Is this really the operating conditions that Roku thinks are acceptable? Disappointing. I changed from a Amazon Fire because of operating issues...maybe we need to rethink other options?
When is the streaming issue your support page identifies going to be fixed? Don't ask me to do an update or check my internet connection. The problem started after update 10.5.0 and has not been fixed. ROKU did something and needs to fix it. We are tired of watching shows that keep reloading and backing up. It probably has something to do with taking on more customers than you can support, then our service suffers.
Have tried everything you suggested multiple times. Nothing works. Screen frozen, unit only responds with a ping sound, buttons do not work. Are you serious about fixing or should I just buy a different system??? Please respond.
No they aren't serious about fixing it. They just keep ignoring us as long as we keep the money coming. I had the same issue with the Amazon Firestick after having their service for over a year. It went on for months and they never fixed it. They were telling us the same thing. Check your internet connection and reset devices. Same BS with no cure. Problem is, I am running out of options. I do not want to go back to cable, but may have to. Tired of these companies screwing us.
This does nothing work. My tv was working fine until software update. I have been patiently waiting for a REAL RESPONSE and doing what you advised every day since then! I have a Hisense/Roku tv. So the entire unit is possibly trash now.
I sent support all the requested into. Model, serial # and a video do what tv is doing.
I can’t even get to the settings section. My screen is stuck on the 10.5 see what’s new page and won’t go anywhere else. I tried the app on my phone and it still won’t work! I unplugged the device from the tv and still stuck on that stupid screen that says what a great update this is. It won’t go away and won’t let anything else stream.
My Roku Model 4210X-2 box is now working - I dunno why. I can't see that any update has been made - it's still Software 10.5.0 - build 4201-04. I did change the screensaver to the aquarium and the home screen to the squid - not that any of that should matter. But it no longer hangs and no longer requires a reboot after sitting for a day. The remote works fine.
