Reboot without power-off?

Is there any way through code or remote accessible menus to reboot the Roku (2XS)?

Will that kind of option be included on the stick?

Re: Reboot without power-off?

There's a remote sequence: Home 5x, Up 1x, Rew 2x, FF 2x. It also sends a crash report to Roku. A menu option has been requested many, many times with no response from Roku. You can also add this channel which takes advantage of a firmware bug to crash the box and force a reboot.

Re: Reboot without power-off?

Thanks. I find that while viewing MP4s on the Roku it displays corrupted sections while the MP4 file itself is not corrupted. If I reboot the Roku to clear the cache it plays fine the next time, but it's really annoying. Even being able to control the cache more would help.
