Roku 5-13-2021 Update Issue

So my Insignia Roku received an update 11pm 5-13-2021. After the update nothing would load. I had to do a Factory Reset. After reset channels would load but either hang or cause a reboot. After removing about a dozen channels everything started working correctly.

Makes me wonder if the updates are growing in size. Will this start bricking older units?

No per se, but lower memory models (with 512MB) are having more problems with OS10 with certain apps (that load extra code modules, such as YT/YTTV and Apple TV/AirPlay).

Instead of the Factory reset and deleting channels (if it happens again), try:

1) Network connection reset

2) Restore Roku default theme

3) Change to a basic Roku screensaver

4) Check for updates (version upgrades often have additional per-app compatibility updates)
