Roku Premiere still overheating even with HDMI extender
Roku Premiere started showing the 'overheating' error message after about a year of usage without issue or changing connections or location. Couldn't request the HDMI extender on Roku site as kept getting 'serial number invalid' error message (I see this is a common issue people experience too), so spent my own money to purchase one from Amazon. Now, even with the extender, Roku is still overheating about 1/2way through a movie. What's the next step to resolve? Is a Roku Premiere device only good for one year?
It's definitely a Roku Premiere .. the HDMI extender was added as that was Roku's suggested solution for the overheating issue. However, it didn't help.
That's definitely the Premiere, as I'm sure it says on that screen. I have no idea why Roku would suggest an HDMI extender, unless the tech person somehow thought you had a Stick. The extenders can be used to move those away from the chassis of the TV, but I don't have any idea how it could help with issues with a Premiere.
Anyway, let's look at your issue. You say your Premiere is overheating and showing a message? Here's a problem that you may need help from @RokuDanny-R or @RokuMary-F regarding. The device is likely now out of warranty. However, if you can show via emails or other means that you contacted Roku about it while under warranty, and that Roku sent you down the wrong path (a solution for the wrong device), one of those two may be able to help you get it resolved properly.

Re: Roku Premiere still overheating even with HDMI extender
Let me understand what's going on. You have a Roku Premiere, model 3920, which is connected via an HDMI cable to your TV. It's overheating. You added an HDMI Extender to it?
I gotta ask why you got an HDMI Extender. Did Roku suggest that? All an HDMI Extender would do is add a couple of inches to your HDMI cable setup. You wouldn't need one of those with a Premiere. With a Stick, it could make a difference because it would allow the Stick to move slightly away from the TV chassis and reduce possible interference. For a Premiere? I don't get it.
