Problems just started for me on my Roku 2 XD about two days ago. Load times are noticeably longer, and I'm lucky if I get two minutes into a show without a "Loading...please wait" error before getting kicked back to the show's "play" screen. No other channels appear to be affected, but I rebooted the unit just in case, with no luck. Looking forward to any thoughts/updates you might have...


That is exactly the issue I've been experiencing for about six weeks now. It seems not everyone is effected evenly as many people report no problems and some are experiencing MUCH longer loading/buffing times than us. I wonder if it's regional? Are you located in northern California by any chance? Hopefully the new Roku app/streaming they are working on is ready soon.

Nope...about 2,000 miles away in Ohio, actually. Curiously, I made it through six episodes of BTOOOM! last night without a single hiccup, so I don't know what's going on. There was about a 72 hour window where it just went to hell. I am used to that with Netflix, but this was a first for Crunchyroll.

Actually, I may have jinxed myself with writing that since I just tried to watch episode 1 of Watamote for fifteen minutes with no luck at all. I hope that was just a random hiccup because I obviously couldn't justify a paid subscription to something that won't load at all.
