Roku Express says usb not enough power but the unit is plugged into a wall socket.

This is an intermittent problem that requires the Roku Express to be restarted to correct the error. It will work okay for some time and then the error happens again. Is this a possible software issue or is there an issue with the unit that can be corrected?

Are you using the roku usb power adapter or your own? It might not be feeding it enough power, get a better rated one then you have.
