Roku overheating message. Device is not in a hot location.

I've followed the suggestions of where to place the Roku device.  I've even had is suspended in mid-air, in front of the TV where it is in room-temp (70F) air.   Eventually the device will produce the overheat message with every use.  Need assistance with this.

 

Thank you.

Hi, Mary!

I'm also having the same problem with my Premiere, and am also unsure of how to send you a direct message.

 

Thanks in advance!

I sure did give those things a shot and none of them worked. It's a Premiere.

How can I send it in a direct message? Not comfortable posting the Serial number for all to see.

Thanks!

Re: Roku overheating message. Device is not in a hot location.

I am going to say this, Roku's ought to put vent holes in their products! Their devices has no way to release heat so the heat stays in the box! In doing so the board inside gets hot, over heats and starts to play havoc on the streaming devices. I myself have opened the the devices removed the motherboard inside very carefully, and then drilled vent holes in the top of Roku case and placed the Roku motherboard back into device   so they can keep cooler. Am I saying you should do this? Not at all! but for me it helped. I bought an express a while back, the heat was so bad in it that it fried my wifi dongle, and since they was no Ethernet Port on the device, to connect, it turned that streaming device into nothing more then a paper weight!
