Roku doesn't play movies - Update.

Ok so many of you have seen my post about Roku not playing movies. The odd part is it will play TV Shows. It works 100% on my Firestick and PMP on my PI. I've since narrowed this down a bit. More weird stuff. I deleted one of my MP3 libraries and it started working. A few days later it was dead again. Then last night for the heck of it I switched users and it worked on another user. None of this makes any sense. The error on the screen when it fails is a transcoded crash.

Anyone have a thought to fix this?

    More info. Was using Tatuilli and it seems it tries to start the wrong movie. All other clients can play same movie without issue and Tatuilli reports the correct name. It's just the Roku!
