in addition to other things mentioned, it appears to have broken:
1. Search, independent of channels - whether input is from voice or keyboard
2. Episode play progression (will move from episode 3 back to episode 1, or from 5 to 2, etc). This also appears to be app-independent, as I’ve seen it happen in Netflix and Prime now.
Attempts to mitigate: I’ve ended the channel sessions and come in fresh, then I also tried rebooting the roku. Is there a server cache that needs to be cleared? What was kind of interesting was that *the reboot went oddly almost too quickly*. Could the update be failing to release/overwrite old session data? That’s really just a thought, since I’m not really familiar with how roku client or server software handles sessions.
The search just returns nothing - and again that’s a pretty quick empty result, so it’s not timing out.
As a Software Test Eng, after adding the experiences listed here, the issues with this latest build don’t appear to be device specific or channel specific.
Given that there is going to be extra demand for streaming this coming week, I am hoping there might be a hotfix to address these issues.
I’ve messaged Danny but, I too, am experiencing issues with 2 of my Roku devices. The only app that is loading is Netflix. HBO max, Disney +, Hulu & Other apps are unresponsive..prime video for example will load an error message in German, Japanese, English and then once on the home page, no videos will play with the error message: something went wrong:..please try again later. My devices are also no longer responding to my Alexa app. This has been a persistent issue for me since 11/17.
Also, it takes a very long time for anything to load. I’ve restarted both TVs, did a reset on one, restarted my router 3 times, uninstalled apps(which took forever to load due to the slow response time of the roku devices) & unplugged and plugged the TVs back in. Would appreciate either a fix or rollback to previous fully functional OS.
I received my PM from Danny this morning telling me to go to system update to downgrade my TV, but when I did, nothing happened.I noticed that the system build version changed from 4201-AM to 4201, so that could be the case. I messaged him again, so hopefully that will help. Has this happened to anyone else?
