Question about Roku 3 Streaming Media Player - 4200R

1 Answer

I have a Roku 3 which uses the Internet to access Netflix. My ISP gives me unlimited access during 23.00 and 07.00. Is it possible to down load a film during these hours and view it a few hours later

I would like to stream to a hard disk or SD card during the night and then view the film the next day.

Netflix will only load the stream for a short time before it stops, streaming must be done live but you could pause it but doing so all night would not be of much help. Just start and hit pause 10 to 20 minutes before you really want to watch a film or show. If this is really a problem you may need to improve your internet capability either through increasing speeds, getting a plan with less throttling, or moving the router closer to or connecting directly to your devices. Other than that you could download movies and avoid the problems of streaming altogether.

Roku, How To Setup a Roku Player


You want to try the Roku player so you can stream NetFlix to your TV over your home internet connection. It can be a bit of a hair pulling experience to set one up. So I'll try and make it as easy as it can be. First; Once you receive your player, and connect it to your TV. You need to get your new player on to your home network, be sure you have a router with wireless capability's. You will need to know the name of your home network, and you will need to know your WEB key or the pass key to secure your access into your home network. To do this, go to "Settings" (on the Roku menu) then scroll thru the menu until you see "Network", press network, look for your home network and press on it, then put in the WEB key to access your home network router. Remember after each step unplug the Roku for 10 to 20 seconds to set the memory.(may take more than 1 time with some players) NEXT; Go to www.Roku.com internet site and set up your account with them, they will need info on how to bill you if, you use a pay chanel. So they will need some bank account info, Or you can use PayPal. Next On the Roku "My Account" page, down at the right bottom of the page you will see the "Link Player" button, follow this to input your Link code, or go to http://owner.roku.com/link to input the code. Then go to the Roku menu screen and finish the setup with your Link Code. This will now activate your new Roku player. Next you will want to go to NetFlix and set up an account with them. Same thing here, they need bank account info to bill you, if you stay past the free demo time limit. Now go back to your TV, Roku menu and scroll thru the menu to press on NetFlix, here you will go thru the Menu to get another link code. This time it will come on the TV, Roku menu to go back and put that code in your NetFlix account to activate your Roku player with NetFlix. Now in the process of all this, you may have to unplug your Roku player after each link code to set it into memory. This causes a lot of folks to have some trouble as they do not, "Turn Off" the Roku after they put in the network key, the Roku link code, then again after they put in the NetFlix link code. One last bit of help. Do not create a large Instant Queue on your NetFlix account over 50. This causes problems with the memory usage in the Roku player, and It can keep NetFlix from loading. Hope this helps FixYa up.

Netflix will only play about 3 to 5 seconds of a movie before going back to download, why is this happening


There are many reasons that can happen:
Netflix website has too much data "traffic"/ too many people using Netflix.
Your internet provider is having problems/ too much data "traffic".
Your modem or router is having problems.
If you are using a smart tv, a video game console, or something like a Roku or Apple Tv box, their server network might be having problems/ data "traffic".

If you want a better answer, you need to give more detail as to how you are watching Netflix (on a computer, Roku, video game console) and say if its during a specific time of the day/random/once in awhile.
