Re: Roku Keeps Pausing

Roku software seems to be very broken these days. That's what I've been noticing.

Re: Roku Keeps Pausing

i was having this same problem and i feel it has to do with the memory in the tv if there is such a thing.  So i unplugged the internet router for 30 seconds and also unplugged the tv for 30 seconds and started them both back up and so far it resolved the problem.

Re: Roku Keeps Pausing

I had the same problem. I contacted them and was told this is normal even with the bandwidth saver disabled. The only way  to stop this is connect a laptop.I left roku in a spare bedroom and connected a laptop to stream non-stop music and movies to the rest of the house. No buffering or pausing.

Re: Roku Keeps Pausing

We have 3 different rokus but only one at a time gets used and while watching a show on Hulu it will pause the show and you must push play to start it. I did the process to disable mobile access so hopefully that will work.

Re: Roku Keeps Pausing

I also experience the annoying unwanted pauses regularly and have found no way to stop them.

Re: Roku Keeps Pausing

It all has to do with bandwidth . Maybe increase the speed of your Internet connection, that way there won't be any interference when all three devices are streaming at once.

Re: Roku Keeps Pausing

My broadband speed is 100 Mbps. It pauses and asks if I'm still watching on every channel. Have turned off settings but every hour it asks the same question. Very ennoying

Re: Roku Keeps Pausing

If it's prompting you to ask whether you're still watching that's built into the particular channel/app you're using.  There's no global Roku setting for such a thing.  You'd have to take it up with the developer of the channel/app.
