Playback issues triggering a buffer loop during playback

When I start a channel on my Roku Express it starts to play and plays normally for a minute or two. It then buffers and eventually restarts at the beginning of the show and then buffers in the same place and starts the loop all over again. I have checked internet and reset the Roku. Nothing has helped

Re: Playback issues triggering a buffer loop during playback


Thanks for the post.

In general, buffering related issue are typically related to poor internet connectivity. Have you tried rebooting your wireless network to see if that helps the issue you are experiencing? Are you seeing buffering issues on all channels or just on that specific channel?

With more detailed information, we will be able to assist you further.
