Roku 3; asked to add memory card; remote control stopped working
I received an on-screen "suggestion" to add memory to my Roku 3. I ordered and received a 4G microSD. I powered down and installed it. Opening screen says memory card detected, format or (preselected) quit. The remote doesn't allow me to select format ... or do anything. I powered up without the card, and the remote still worked well. I powered down, removed and reinstalled the card, reconnected ... same thing. Why did my remote not work with the card installed?
I've not connected the card to my PC to verify health.
Re: Roku 3; asked to add memory card; remote control stopped working
My Roku 3 has no memory card slot. It has a USB port, an HDMI port, an internet port and a power port. Yesterday the unit refused to open the PBS app and the SLING app then said an SD memory card would make the app load. It suggested that I check my internet connection and the check failed. If the device did not have an internet connection none of the streaming apps would work and the device would not confirm the connection in settings. The background image of the home page changed when these apps failed. More curious is the YouTube TV app now loads when last week it failed. Roku is feuding with Google and stopped offering the app while stating that legacy users could continue. They lied. They fixed the YouTube TV app but broke others. I was reading the "there is no support" thread and the consensus is that there is no support. Looking at the support pages and found that the Roku 3 is no longer listed in the devices. When you check other you get referred to the forum. This is my last Roku product. It worked well enough when it was new but they do not support their products focussing on something else than their customers. Shame on roku!
