Roku's Roku app stops playing approx 30-60 minutes into the video
This does not happen with any other of the 50 apps I have on my Home Screen it only happens on the Roku app. For instance all of my Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Youtube videos play without any problem. When this occurs the app is hung I can't back out of the problem. I must go to Roku Home screen and select the Roku app all over again. This has happened ever since I first tried to use the Roku app. I have only been able to view an entire video about two times -- all other times I get the lock up. I am using a 2720X on a 5 MB bandpass.
BTW I attempted to report this properly twice earlier today but somehow was unable to enter any descripton. Those can be closed/deleted
Re: Roku's Roku app stops playing approx 30-60 minutes into the video
In frustration I uninstalled the Roku app about a month ago. In response to your suggestion I 1) did a power off, wait 3 minutes, power on. 2) I then reinstalled the Roku app.
3) I clicked the Roku app 4) I selected the first video on the home screen (Terminator). The video began playing. 5) After about 65 minute the screen froze. 6) I pressed the back arrow. 7) I was returned to a screen that asked if I wished to resume or start over. 8) I clicked resume 9) I was neither resumed nor started over but instead returned to the Roku app Home menu.
This ONLY occurs on the Roku app. I never have this problem on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, or Youtube to mention a few.
If the problem was corruption of the code in the Roku device, the power of/wait/power on should have cleared it. I the problem was corruption of the Roku app code the reinstall should have cured that. I can only conclude that the problem lies in a bug in the app code.
