Re: Missing characters in text boxes

Totally, but Roku support leads you to believe that it’s an issue that the ‘engineers’ are working on when it appears that nothing of the sort is happening. Worst of all is the last contact I had with them they declared that my streaming stick was bad and needed replacement. Replaced it with another new one i had yet to open…same exact issue🤦🏻

Re: Missing characters in text boxes

I have two different soundbars - About $200+ worth of Roku equipment. It's not the equipment. If it was, there wouldn't be scores of us all over the country with different equipment. 

The engineers need to work harder or watch everyone bail out to a company that gives us better service. It's not like Roku doesn't have competition.

Re: Missing letters on main screens

This has been happening to me too, for the past few weeks. Roku, please fix this if you can!

Edit:

Looks like it may have something to do with the 13.0 update on May 14th, a bug that needs to be fixed (full numbered updates often bring bugs, hence the 0.x updates).

Re: Missing letters on main screens

Reset will fix it temporarily, and problem comes back within a few hours, across all apps and the Roku homepage (not just the MLB app shown in photo). It’s mostly missing letters, but some other UI elements have trouble loading sometimes too, like thumbnail previews for videos.

Re: Missing letters on main screens

Just checking in, it’s been a couple of weeks and I continue to reset Roku soundbar several times a day so I can read the words. Has the support team figured out what’s wrong with the Roku system?

Re: Missing letters on main screens

No, this has been going on for well over a year. It does it on both my Roku sticks/tv's. Customers are told it's being looked into. So why hasn't it been fixed in all this time??
