Yep, it is very weird that a firmware update would cause such mayhem for a device. I can only hope that the device they send does, in fact, solve the issue. Here are the links I used to contact Roku support.
My Roku Ultra 4670X is still having having problems. It has updated to 10.5 4201-46, but Vudu, Hulu, Disney, HBO Max, Paramount, Youtube all these apps state connection problems and won't load. Netflix works for some reason. The other Roku that is still on 10.0 works completely fine. The dashboard itself is laggy and nothing loads properly there either. I have done any and all "fixes". I don't understand how it has gone through two "updates" now and is still broken.
We're currently unable to replicate the issue outline in this thread. If you are still experiencing this issue, are you using an adblock or any other features on your router that may be hindering the connecting to your Roku device?
No ad blocks or anything fancy. I use the modem Comcast supplied me with no changes. My Chromecasts, Apple TV, LG WebOS, iPhone, Android, PC all work flawlessly. This issue began immediately after my Roku auto-updated. It worked flawlessly before the update.
Are you sure they are testing the same 4660X hardware that this is occurring on, and no other hardware model?
We are experiencing the same network connection problems with HBOMax, Roku Channel, Hulu, & Amazon since the 10.5.0 update on 11.4.21.
Our router does not have adblock installed nor any other enabled router feature that would interfere with the network connection. Netflix does load properly, so that seems to indicate that network connection is not block outside of the Roku device.
Hoping your team can find a solution. My information as you requested is below,
- Model 4660X
- 10.5.0 Build 4198-46
- HBO Max 50.55 Build 6608, Hulu 6.53 Build 3, and YouTube 2.21 Build 94005087 are all affected.
- Hulu tracker ID 67-451-907. HBO tracker 67-451-910. YouTube tracker 67-451-911
Banner ad does not open- HBO opens very slowly, and once playing a title, it kicks me back to the home screen after about 30 seconds. Hulu never boots up past the logo screen before giving a Network error. See attached images and note that the banner ad that usually displays in the right panel does not open.
