Roku 2

I've had my Roku for 3yrs and now its keep telling me it can't load channels and need a SD card. WHY?? I haven't loaded any new channels in fact I've deleting channels. It will work fine one day and the next time I load the channel it tells me I need a card. I only have 11 channels saved so why am I out of room.

Re: Roku 2

I think you’ll find it’s not actually saying what you’re reporting. I strongly suspect it’s saying that it *suggests* an SD card, not that it *needs* an SD card.

The Roku 2 model 4210, which, I suspect is yours (as opposed to the model 2720 Roku 2), is identical to the Roku 3. It supports an SD card for storage of channels (apps). It does *not* require one, but it could improve the load time for apps if you have one. That’s all it’s saying.

Re: Roku 2

when I click on a channel say You Tube or Amazon Prime it says it can't load the page and I refers me to the page that sales SD cards. Yet if I un plug the Roku for a few mins then plug back in its fine. Til the next time I try and access those channels

What's the exact message? Take a picture and link to it here, or transcribe it exactly. No paraphrase, or approximations. The exact wording is important.
