  • Your tech support “help” has been an absolute, worthless, useless, joke.

    Roku CaseID #1657011

    My Roku unit crashes at least once per day.
    Here’s what your “tech” support has suggested:
    1. Reboot my wireless router – I’M NOT USING WIRELESS
    2. Make sure my wireless key is correct – I’M NOT USING WIRELESS
    3. Power cycle the Roku – DUH!! IT FREEZES AND HANGS EVERY DAY.
    4. Change my DNS settings – I ALREADY USE OPENDNS AND GOOGLE DNS –

    What an absolute WASTE OF TIME your (lack of) tech support is.
    I’m posting here in the slim hope someone from Roku will read this and actually try to help.
