    The most common causes of buffering and loading videos are a slow download speed or an inconsistent wireless connection. If at all the buffer still continues then do the following to resolve it

    • Power down and unplug your equipment for approximately one minute and then power backup.
    • If you are watching a video over a wireless connection, connect your device directly to your router with Ethernet cable.
    • Disconnect any other device from your network.
    • Refer to your router manufacturer for setting and configuration that can help to improve the strength of the network.

Raise your transmitter as high as possible to improve signal strength. You can also direct the signal better to the device by installing a 180 degree metal barrier behind your transmitter so more signal gets to device. And check your network speed. You may be below specs and have to contact your provider for service.

How is Amazon Fire Stick different from Roku Streaming Stick?

The Amazon Fire Stick and Roku Streaming Stick both are streaming devices which are being compared in this article. Today we're going to be taking a look at both systems in order to help you build a better picture of which device would suits your needs most fully. To watch your favorite shows on Roku all you need to do is generate your Roku Link Code and activate your Roku device.
Amazon Fire TV Stick versus Roku Streaming Stick Design and Compatibility differences:

As far as the appearance is considered the Roku is purple in color while the Amazon Fire Stick is available in matte black finishing. Compatibility is equally similar. The Roku Streaming Stick and the Fire Stick support a wide range of devices, including those running on iOS and Android platforms.
Here are a few specifications for the Fire TV Stick:
Provides an HDMI output.
Processor: 1.2GHz Broadcom Capri 28155, dual-core 2xARM A9
Maximum. Output Video Resolution: 1080p
Dimensions: 84.9 x 25x 11.5 mm

Processor: 600 MHz Broadcom BCM2835
RAM: 512MB
Maximum Output Video Resolution: 1080p
Dimensions: 78 x 28x 12 mm

The installation process is however much easier and simpler for the Roku Streaming Stick as the Roku account can be easily activated by just generating your Roku Link Code and registering it with the Roku server.

Amazon Fire TV Stick vs Roku Streaming Stick: Content and Channels

Considering the content that is streamed on both the devices, both the Roku Streaming Stick and Fire TV Stick also offer channels which let you enjoy the most popular channels. With the Fire TV Stick you get Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, Crackle, YouTube Bloomberg TV, and Pandora, are among some other lesser ones. The Fire TV lacks HBO GO, and other than that offers all the major channels that the Roku Streaming Stick streams.

How do I correct Ruku loading problems


You didn't say exactly what is happening or which Roku model you have, but:

Roku requires registration on their website with a credit card. They will then give you an activation code. This has to done first.

If your Roku can be used with either a wired (Ethernet) cable (Cat 5 / 6) or wireless, you may need to configure your network router to recognize the Roku device. Just a tip - these devices seem to work better with a wired connection rather than wirelessly unless the wireless router is close to the unit. The video can be choppy with wireless units, especially if you have other streaming devices in use.

Note that some of the Roku supported content sites are free but sites like Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon require a paid subscription.

I don't have a picture but I have sound with my Roku Streaming Stick

I use a Roku 3 but the display setting should match the Roku setting. Hence 720 to 720. It is tough to get a 1080p picture via wireless which is the only option with the streaming stick. The distance from the streaming stick to the router could be a problem. I am assuming the setup screen displays correctly.
