Re: Constant HDCP error every time I turn on TV

Jump to solution

I have the same issue. I have to turn the tv off, unplug the roku from the tv then plug it back in. It works fine after that but it happens each time that I start streaming a program. Sometimes it happens when I go from one program to another. Did you figure out how to fix it?

Constant HDCP error on 2 TV's and 2 different ROKU streamers

Jump to solution

I have the issue on 2 TV's with 2 different ROKU streamers.  Almost every time I power on the TV I get the error.  The easiest fix is to turn the TV off and wait 30 secs and turn it on.  But... this just started about a month ago so what release did you guys put out that's causing this.  I've had both ROKU's for at least 6 months.  It has to be your problem.  I'd appreciate a fix not a constant referral to a support article...

@JeffSharon, not too long ago a "power saving" "feature" was added to some Roku devices.  See if you have it by going to Settings->System->Power and if you do try disabling it.  It's proven to be more trouble than it's worth for many people.
