It's and endless loop. After the reboot the Roku letters bounce around 3-4 times and then goes back to the setup screen, asking me to choose a language. I find it interesting that even after downloading the newest software and rebooting, I go through the setup wizard again and it still states it sees an available update...which it downloads, reboots, bounces the Roku letters, and goes back to language choice.

Could you tell us how are you powering your Roku device? Is it connected to the USB port of the TV or to a wall outlet? In some cases, the USB power provided by the TV is not sufficient to power the device. Even though your Roku device may appear to be working, running with insufficient power can lead to instability, crashing, and other unpredictable behavior.
Using the included power cord and power adapter, we suggest plugging your Roku into a working power outlet in the wall. Powering it through a power outlet in the wall has the additional advantage that your Roku player will not need to power up every time you turn on your TV.
Let us know if there's any difference after.
Initially I was using the USB on the TV. Then I tried using an AC/USB Adapter plugged into the wall. Same result. I then connected the unit to another TV and ran the complete setup. Took it back to the original TV and it just displays Roku logo, black, Roku logo, black, Roku logo, etc.
I'd suggest taking it back to the TV where you were able to set it up. Under Settings > Display type, try setting it to the screen resolution of the TV on which you intend to use the Roku, instead of the "Auto detect" setting. I'm kinda grasping at straws here, so this may not help, but it shouldn't hurt.
When you change the Display type to a new setting it runs you through several screens:
Now return to the original TV and see if that works for you.
My exact same problem! I just received this Express remote - wondered if it was the Remote's problem! Ready to take it back to the store!!!
This is SharronM. It worked for me when I switched to using the ROKU plug and not the USB plug in on the back of the TV.
same thing is currently happening to me. i have the USB plugged into a adapter plugged into the wall but it keeps bouncing me back to the setup screen after "downloading update". I'm honestly about to take it back to the store and get my money back this is ridiculous. I'm honestly very disappointed in this product. Roku was recommended to me by a close family friend so for this to be my experience is disheartening and honestly infuriating.

So Paramount Plus won't stream on Samsung TV's. Buy Roku box, OK shouldn't have to but OK. Roku box will not join internet with proper code. Oh maybe I can get some human help?
You and Paramount Plus both have great sales prevention departments, you both SUCK.
