I have a Roku Ultra 4660X connected via HDMI to a Yamaha TSR-7850 AVR. Prior to firmware version 10.5, after not being accessed overnight, when I select "watch roku", the receiver does not recognize the Roku is connected until I reboot it, either by blind remote commands to the Roku or power down the Roku. Once I get the connection established, it will play all day, even if I switch the receiver to another input source, then switch back to Roku. When 10.5 was installed, everything worked well. Since the 11.0 firmware update, the issue has returned. Can someone offer a solution to the issue?
Your Roku by default goes to sleep after 4 hours of non activity. It was doing that with 10.5. It’s called bandwidth saver. You didn’t have to unplug. Simply press the home button on the remote. So go to settings/ network and disable bandwidth saver. Also look under the power settings if there is any. Your receiver also might have some sort of power saving. Plug your Roku straight into the TV and see what happens
The AVR is a Yamaha TSR-7850. I'm not certain how to get a video to you, but I will describe, as best I can, the issue.
After sitting overnight, I use my Harmony remote (Harmony One) and select the "Watch Roku" activity. The AVR powers on and starts attempting to obtain a signal. Sometimes, not all the time, the TV screen will flash and I will see a Roku screen for a split second. My AVR will then display "No signal". Rinse and repeat. I have attempted disabling bandwidth save, pressing the "Home" key on the Roku prior to powering on the AVR, all to no effect.
This pattern continues until I reset the Roku. Then it works flawlessly. I can change inputs to my TV or Blue Ray player, then change back the the Roku and all is well....until tomorrow.
I have a Roku Ultra, model 4660X. Software 11.0.0 build 4168. Sorry, it is just updating to build 4173.
I will contact you tomorrow to see if the build update has any effect, positively or negatively.
Prior to the version 11 update I was not experiencing this issue.
