The Roku suddenly started displaying the purple screen blocking any content. No, I would not recommend this to a friend I bought this on a whim. The Ultra on the other hand loves a strong signal -52 - -64 but will allow for much better range of your network. I've always hated the technology, personally. Now more back on topic: I have though more about my earlier statement and have some extra thoughts.

Sure you will have moments of frustration when you have to reboot it but this is life and nothing is important. The next time I attempted to watch the movie, it worked just fine. Or this is something to do with their recent app updates which seem a bit worse than better than before. With the Roku that isn't possible, though. I was overlooking the capabilities of component.
And issues with roku not connecting properly and the screen comes up purple? You can change ; continued site use signifies consent. I have another Roku but it is an older version. Sorry, not playing that game. It is a surprise that Roku has still not come out with an upgrade to prevent this from ever occurring.

Most of the channels in Roku are free but some of them need a subscription which will be managed through Roku. The fire stick will work with Roku plugged in, but not vice versa.
I've only done it once, so I don't know if that fix holds. While the cheaper models work they tend to require a very strong signal to provide the best experience. It's just not worth it. Check for System Updates everyday. I was going to ask if anyone has a fix or workaround, but you know what I don't care.
I would recommend this to a friend I purchased the Roku Ultra about a month ago, the same day I got rid of cable. The Roku Ultra is the king of the hill and with its easy simple to use interface it fits in everyone's viewing room with ease. Previously there was only Roku plugged in. And why do I care? Not only that but the buttons to Netflix, Hulu etc. I really didnt expect alot from this device, but figured it would be better than running my few streaming apps on my xbox one s.

What I finally did was un-hook the roku, and hook the receiver directly to the tv, and use the native smart apps on the tv. From the very start we had issues with the remote control working, then not, then working, then only partially working with no rhyme or reason as to why it was acting up. I started researching the issue, and apparently this problem is causing all kinds of havoc with roku ultra owners. You can also unplug, turn off, disconnect, reset, or otherwise make both devices think they are newly connected and ask for the credentials again. After you acknowledge the error, use the remotes left arrow key to get to the back selection on the bottom left hand corner of the screen.
I came upon a fix. Netflix supports the Digital Advertising Alliance principles. When I hooked it up to my new 4k hdr set, through my new 4k hdr receiver, I thought wow, this will be great. I have read on the roku forums and this seems pretty common, even from last year. The Roku Ultra works great for some--maybe most--buyers, but when it doesn't watch out. Don't think I'll ever go back to cable. However some things aren't officially supported such as Twitch for instance.
