    My connection has been a little flaky today and it just reminded me that I wanted to let you know that Roku used to handle network interruptions much better than it does now. I’m not sure if this changed when I upgraded to a new Roku box, or if it was simply a software upgrade at some point, but it used to be the case that if I had a network interruption, my Roku box took me directly to the settings to reconnect and as soon as I did so, it immediately returned me to the show I had been watching and I simply had to click once to resume playing. Now if there is an interruption I have to navigate to the connections settings and once I’ve reconnected I have to navigate back to the channel I was on and then to the show I was watching. The new behavior is definitely a step backward. It used to be much more seamless. Thanks for considering fixing this in a future upgrade!
