Watching the old (1955) Hitchcock Presents series. They put one and maybe sometimes two current commercials into the show. the problem is most of the time the entire system freezes when it gets to the commercial. The only way out is to go back and then hit resume. Sometimes that does not work and I have turn turn the TV off and on. Eventually it will start up again.
To make matters worse, if I watch an episode and then watch the next one and have this problem, when it finally restarts the closed captions from the first one show up on the second one!
Clearly a Roku Channel bug with this series. I have not had this problem with other Ruku channel programs nor with my Acorn channel.
Please provide us with the following information for further investigation:
-Roku device model
(these can all be found in Settings > System > About)
-Does this issue occur on a specific channel? If so, what channel and what version/build is the channel (this can be found by selecting the channel on the Home screen and pressing the * button)
-Tracker ID when this issue occurs (when you see this issue occur, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times)
-Steps to reproduce the issue you are seeing
With more information, we will be able to assist you further.
Roku channel freezes when viewing “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” ON Roku channel and when using Roku Ultra devices, wired or wireless connections. Does not happen when using Roku Express devices in either location, Office or Family Room. Upon freezing and after restarting “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” closed captions are not synchronized. CC displayed is from prior episode. To re-sync CC, must go to Settings, System, Power, Restart, then return to Home, Roku Channel, “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” Resume or Play from Beginning.
The following are typical events (three of them) on two different Roku Ultra devices.
Thank you for reporting this issue to Roku Community and for providing the information needed. We'll go ahead and send this over to the Roku Channel team for an investigation. We'll get back to you once we have an update is available I'll be sure to let the Community know.
Has always done this for some reason on Alfred Hitchcock. Normally, just back out/press Home and then resume playing the episode. (Does not do this on every episode, but will happen to you sporadically with this series.)
At least on my Ultra and my RokuTV it has.
Another posting/thread indicates more prevalent on the Ultras rather than the older Express models.
