I never complain on websites like these but I am FURIOUS at the moment!!! Bought a Roku Streaming Stick Plus, but everything on Roku said cannot commect due to HDCP!

WTF?! My tv is brand new. I spent hours unplugging and restarting the crap. Then sat on the phone with their “customer service” which is obviously some idiot in a foreign country who was raised by a mountain goat.

I got so frustrated I returned it and bought the downgraded version assuming the issue might be my tv. I downgraded to the regular hd Roku Streaming Stick... SAME PROBLEM!!! Actually worse because install took forever, had to reset the device multiple times...

STILL DOESN’T WORK. I have a masters degree in computer sciences... IF I CAN’T GET THIS TO WORK THERE IS A PROBLEM. DO NOT BUY ROKU!!!!

I REPEAT DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS HORRIBLE CRAP. BAD PRODUCT, BUGGY SOFTWARE, USELESS CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!

Product or Service Mentioned: Roku Streaming Stick.

Reason of review: Bad quality.

I don't like ROKU either. Mainly because of the logically retarded menus.

Millennial engineering without a doubt.

As far as the the Computer Scientist with the masters degree, he sounds typical of these collegiate *** DHCP is the auto IP addressing on your wireless router. You sound like the trailer-trash *** that get pissed off because their magic-jack doesn't work without internet access.

So let's get this right. Having a degree makes you a d.o.u.c.h.e.

Being "trailer-trash" (improperly placed hyphen you illiterate jamoke) is also a bad thing. Lemme guess.

You're always the smartest guy in the room, tho you never made it past your blue-collar-insult-everyone-who-aint-me strata. You, sir, are in the right place, a fix-it forum, because YOU ARE A TOOL.

OMG . You have a masters degree in computer science and can’t set up a Roku ? Get the neighborhood 10 year old kid to come in and do it for you .

How conceited are you? The fact that you have a Master’s degree in Computer Science does not qualify you to be an expert end-user in that particular application.

Did you program the software?

Do you fully understand electronics? I agree that the Roku interface is *** but I just loathe people like you with your linear and tunnel vision personality!

Why is it conceited to note one's computer-associated degree when complaining about a computer-related problem? Whatsa matta punkin, did you drop out before you could get your degree?

Never made it to college at all?

Or is your left wing just jabbing you in the brain? Get over it snowflake; it was a perfectly reasonable comment to illustrate a point.

Bought a Vizio 55" and a Roku Streaming Stick. Both worked flawlessly....

in Ohio. When I moved this week to Raleigh, North Carolina, nothing. At first it couldn't get past the home screen with all the channels and kept saying that the channels' servers were down. All 98 of them???

I went through ALL the steps of restarting, resetting to factory specs, restarting the routers and TV and everything else... and it gets stuck on the software update with the error code of 003. Wasted an hour with tech support chatline and was told to reset the router. When I did and came back, "Grey" was gone.

"Karthi" took over 30 minutes later and told me to "wait two hours and try again. Our engineers are aware of the issues. Please wait two hours and try again." This is Friday night and I've been having this issue since Tuesday evening. Called tech support and got Firestone Autocare, who said he's been getting calls all day for Roku.

Found another number and got a muffled Foreigner.

Hung up and tried again and was told to leave a message because they are experiencing an "unusually high call volume." Really? Maybe I'll go with Amazon.

Who is karthi

Agreed. The HDCP issues have been a disaster for a long time.

Their favorite suggestion is to buy a new HDMI cable. Ignoring the fact that you have a brand new HDMI cable. I have 2 Roku's.

One is completely unusable, and the other one is temperamental. I love online streaming services, but the Roku is not the device you want to use for accessing them.

Especially you try to stream Nashville Predators live on NHL to watch live game including football game

@PissedConsumer1570741

For which religion is Roki "praying" on the poor? Hopefully, in one that we would recognize and approve of.

When you're going to criticize someone's syntax, your own should pristine. Stop being a ***

@PissedConsumer1675976

LOL, I think you meant "should BE pristine". Kind of funny when you tell other people they can't type or have poor grammar when you do the same thing.
