Added a 3rd Roku 3 to my setup and now getting many Loading, Please Wait interruptions on LIVE TV. Does anyone know if the ROKU devices can conflict with each other? Everything is on WIFI. I just unhooked the 3rd device and it seems to fix the issue. Nothing recording at the time
Using the 4 tuner Tablo.
Try leaving the 3rd ROKU connected and disconnect one of the original ROKUs.
If all is OK, I would suspect your WiFi network is not robust enough to handle all 3 devices at the same time.
Is there something I can do to increase the wifi robustness?
What router do you have? TP Link Archer C7 (or C9 or similar routers) will increase your LAN and WIFI bandwidth.
Were you actually streaming to all 3 Rokus at the same time?
Or did you just add the 3rd Roku and then you couldn’t get it to play properly on just one at a time?
I’ve heard the Roku 3 remotes can cause a little trouble in congested Wi-Fi setups since the Roku 3 remotes themselves use ad-hoc Wi-Fi. (The remotes use the same Wi-Fi channel the Rokus are on.) Usually, if the user has a multi-band router, the user can move the Rokus to a separate band to help clear things up.
Otherwise, there could be other issues at play, like other Wi-Fi networks in the area, weak reception or just not having enough bandwidth, especially if the Tablo’s recording setting is set high. (I believe the recording setting also affects live TV.)
I Use and Airport Time Capsule -
NO only one and when I unhooked the new third roku it stopped.
If you’ve got a dual-band router, make sure all the Rokus (and the Tablo) are using the 5Ghz band, especially if none of them can be hardwired.
Take a look at a Wi-Fi analyzer tool (there is one built into the Mac OS) and make sure you’re not on a crowded channel. These two changes can make a big difference.
