Single Playback Only Failed Playback on Second Video

My app works correctly on the new boxes like the Roku 3 or any of the Roku Sticks; however, when I load it on an older Roku HD I have a bizzare issue.

The app will load and I select a video to play.  It will load and play that video fine; however, once I go back, I cannot load another video.  I can exit the app, reload it, and still cannot play another video.  I can only play another video after the Roku as been rebooted.

This issue only appears on the Roku HD and not on the Roku Stick or Roku 3.  Am I missing something?

Any ideas on this?

What information are you seeing being reported by the video player events?

Thanks for the reply.

Whenever I stop playing the initial video (whatever I play first) I can select a second video and it will start to load, get to about 30% and stop and go back to my selections menu. It only does this on older Roku boxes like my Roku HD. On a Roku Stick, it will play the second and subsequent files fine.

Everything is MP4 as well.

follow @belltown's recommendation - make your app dump to console all video events (roVideoPlayerEvent, roVideoScreenEvent, ... whatever appropriate) and that should give you idea what's going on

I'm not sure I follow.  Can you give me an example, please?
