For the last several days I've been having trouble connecting to CR through my original Roku box. The message reads, "Can't connect to video service. We were unable to connect to the service. Please try again in a few minutes." Sometimes I click "Done" to get out of this message and get signed onto CR, and can watch episodes. The same error message might recur in an hour or the next day.

Other times, I click on "Done" and get bounced out of CR altogether.

Any idea what's going on? I had had some problems with my wifi router previously, but straightened those out and was cruising CR easily for a few weeks before this started happening.

Help, pls? Anybody?

Thanks,
Marcy

Well that post just saved me $100. I will stick with the PS3 since it does an amazing job of streaming crunchyroll (even better than the Computer). It would be nice to have something like a Roku that streams and behaves the same way as the PS3 CR app.


Glad to help. However, as jsc315 said, with the newest models there may also be some differences in functionality for those newer devices. I know this is already the case with a few things with and the announcement of the Roku 3 did indicate they were making some software changes such that the newest model would be able to do some things that older models wouldn't. Now, whether or not any of those changes are things that CR developers can/will take advantage of in updating their Roku application, or that would make an option to choose to run episodes one after the other possible, who knows?

But, yes, if it's that important to you, probably better to wait until there are more Roku 3's out there, and then see what Roku 3 users, or CR customer service, have to say about how the CR app behaves with it.



My sister just returned from college and gave me her Roku HD that she got last year. So far so good, although I am a bit disappointed by FiOS service at the moment.

Heh, fixed my own problem.

My wifi router was in the process of melting down again, which must have been what was generating the connection problems. Once it had a proper meltdown and I got it rebooted, the connection problem was fixed. Sorry to have bothered you at all about the problem.

Warm regards,
Marcy

Japancast does not appear on my Roku queue lineup. This worked in the past, but has not worked for the past couple of months. However, I can find if I search for individual episodes. With over 100 episodes this is a pain.
Japancast does appear in my Crunchyroll queue listing on my pc just fine. Episodes also seem to be accessible just fine from my pc.
I have not noticed any other problems with animes on Roku. In general Chrunchyroll on Roku has worked great.

Shows that are labelled as 'Pop' will only show up on the website.

Multiple episodes of multiple series from Crunchyroll as streamed by Flingo's "WebVideos" app on, minimally, Vizio TVs are missing. Furthermore, the episodes that are missing may actually change from time to time (as reported by a different user - I haven't personally tried that). The symptom is that the series will have, say, 61 episodes but actually there are intermittent episodes missing - symptom like the episode list is: 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 11, 14, 15, 16, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, etc...

Flingo says (recently) that they fixed this for some other TV, however the problem certainly remains. Since SOMEONE is making money off these streamed videos one would assume all those involved in making them available would be interested in the resolution of the problem, thus this Heads Up posted both here and on Flingo's forums.

How long is a reasonable time to expect to wait for subtitles for simulcasts when played on the ROKU (and/or android app)? The web browser player version already has subtitles for the latest simulcast of Chihayafuru 2 Episode 13, but they haven't shown up on the Roku yet, 45 minutes after it became available.

Roku issues:

- There is no way to search for newly added shows
- New shows missing like "The Severing Crime Edge" and "Muromi-san"
- Next show does not start autoplaying


Going back to the PS3.

Could anyone who might actually know chime in as to if and when we might possibly get HD on Roku?? I know there are lots of people waiting on this and we haven't heard anything regarding this in a long time...

The last thing I saw mentioned was in on of the CR panels at an anime convention last year (around mid-year as I recall), when they responded "some time next year" (i.e, this year).

Frankly, I've put CR in 720p on the Roku on my "I'll believe it when I see it" list.

I've been having problems getting CR to run on my ROKU as well. I keep getting a message that pops up saying "SERVER ERROR: Operation could not be completed due to one or more missing values." If I click "done" on that screen then it lets me try opening a video that then tries to load but either fails immediately or a few seconds in. Is this a problem that is being worked on?
