Re: Roku stops streaming after 3 mins - v12.5.0 build 4178-c2 - Sling, Tablo, Amazon, Hulu, Emby....

Hi @CraigMKDavis,

Greetings from the Roku Community!
We understand you're having a problem with the Roku Ultra since it keeps stopping streaming after three (3) minutes. We're happy to assist you further, but we will need to gather more information.

  • How far is your Roku device from your router?
  • Did we recently make any changes to your network or network provider?
  • Do you have cellular data, so we can try connecting your device to your hotspot?
  • Could you send us a photo or video of your running problem?

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

Thanks,

John

Hi John,

Thank you for your response.

The Roku is about 8 inches from the router and the Roku is connected to the router with an Ethernet connection.

We have made no recent changes to the network or network provider.

We don't currently have a means to test using cellular data.

The problem results in a quiet return to the home screen. Here is a photo of the bug tracker right after being returned to the home screen: https://imgur.com/a/4bHdNfr

Hi @Dont99,

Thanks for taking your first post here in the Roku Community!

Have you tried removing the channel, restarting your Roku player, and adding the channel back? To ensure the process is successful, make sure to restart your device before adding the channel back in. We would recommend doing this from the Settings menu by navigating to Settings > System > Power > System restart. (If you do not see a Power submenu, skip to the next step.)

For detailed instructions, refer to this Support link: How to resolve a channel playback issue

Please let us know how it goes.

All the best,

Chel

I'm also encountering a crash when trying to use the Tablo 4-gen app on Roku.  I just installed it on Friday 1/19.  I have the Roku Ultra 4660RW with software release 12.5.5 and build 4174-46.

I did try restarting the Roku box but I haven't tried reinstalling the app.  I am not experiencing this issue when I use the Tablo App on my iPhone.

I have this problem but only when stream on the Roku channel. The on demand will work for a time and then exit and return to app screen. If the only solution is to create a mobile hotspot, I will need to find a new device, that isn’t a reasonable solution. What is the fix?
