Won't load - hanging, stuck on splash screen. Anyone else having problems and/or had this issue before and discovered a remedy?

Did the usual things - restarted my Roku Express 2017 and re-installed the app

Not able to test for a couple of hours, but my Roku SS+ iPlayer was OK very early this morning (around 0020). Have you force updated, that's cured ills in the past?

Grumble. Oh well I very rarely use it but the Baa-Baas v Fiji Game was on and I ended up using TVPlayer....

Still thinking of getting a mini PC to replace all my bit-part streaming products.

If the apps you need are on Apple TV 4K - do yourself a favour and get one of them instead... PCs are terrible at the basic things like Frame rate switching, remote control etc. Nobody wants to be fiddling with a track pad or air mouse to change channel or select their next Netflix viewing.

Apps I want are iPlayer, NowTV, Virgin Media Anywhere, the other UK broadcasters catchup apps, possibly Premier Player, a NAS media browser so Kodi or similar

Anything else, I mean would you like the media moved to a bit to the left or...?

Seems that's the only way to watch football and rugby nowadays is to just buy everything! I should just fork out whatever Vermin are charging for a second box for upstairs really.
