Roku freezes and restarts
Let me start off by saying I think the new plex channel is great and I use it everyday. I have a roku 2 xs. When using direct play I have not been able to watch an entire movie without the roku freezing and restarting on its own. If I set it to transcode only it works fine (but with some stuttering and artifacts), and if I play the movie off a usb drive using the roku usb channel it works fine. Whenever I try to direct play from plex, though, it never works. Most of my movies are mkv, h.264, ac3. It has done this with mkv, h.264, aac also. Has anyone else had this problem? Is this a problem with how plex sends the media to the roku, or is this a problem with my roku itself? I would appreciate any ideas or feedback people have. I think this program is great and I would like a way to avoid the artifacts that pop up with transcoding (and reduce my cpu load.) Thanks!
