Shortcut for streaming for Bit Rate Override

I do the shortcut for the Bit Rate Override, home#5, rewind#3 & fast-foward#2 times. And it won't stay set. What am I doing wrong? My Internet sucks bad & can barely use my Roku.....

Re: Shortcut for streaming for Bit Rate Override

That hasn't had any effect for many years.  I don't know why it's still there.  Some services provide a way to limit bitrate via account settings usually found on their website.  You can also try changing your display type to 720p.

I hate to say it, but if you have inadequate Internet service then streaming really isn't for you.
