Why do i have to reinstall from the network

  1. When trying to go into my streaming channels I get a Roku message saying I need to delete so channels due to not enough space. Also tells me unable to reinstall from the network. My model is a 3800RW Iwas wondering do I have to upgrade my roku.

I've never encountered that message, though I've heard reports of it. Roku devices ae designed go offload apps once memory gets tight. All Roku devices will do this depending on what apps are installed, as different apps take up different amounts of on-board space.

Again, I would expect things to continue to work, but as I said, I've not encountered that message. If you do get a new device, all of the Roku devices have at least twice the local storage of the 3800 Stick, including the 3810 Streaming Stick+.

It may be that you need to delete some apps (depending on how many you have).

Before you do, try the following:

ATTENTION:  If you still cant load YouTube/YouTube (or other apps):

1) Check for updates:  Settings/System/System update/Check now

2) Restore the default theme:  Settings/Theme/Restore default theme

3) Use a simple screensaver:  Settings/Theme/Screensavers/Roku Digital Clock/Set as screensaver

4) Load YT/YTTV/apps

** EVEN IF YOU ALREADY PERFORMED THESE STEPS, DO THEM AGAIN **
