Roku and Firestick App crash

You weren’t clear which Tablo device you were using, but I do have this problem at least once an hour while watching on my Android TV and Firestick TV or 4k stick. (I do have a Roku device, but I don’t use it very often and I’m not sure if I’m having the same issue.)

What I have noticed is that I will be in the app, and suddenly the app will seem to restart. There are times I get the splash screen, and other times where it only plays the startup music – sometimes doing this twice in a row.

I’m trying to keep in mind that these TVs (and sticks) use bluetooth to connect and wonder if this might be causing an issue. Yesterday, I noticed that twice when I went to use a different bluetooth remote, the app “restarted”. However, it does restart even when I’m using commercial skip or changing between menus.

No matter, you’re not alone in this issue. I’ve currently got two TVs in the same room right now trying to solve a separate issue. As I attempt to resolve both of these problems I’m taking a copious amount notes. Because I use such varying devices, I don’t think it’s a memory issue within the devices themselves, but I suppose a memory leak within the app could cause the crashing?

Device information: I am using TWO 4th gen 2-tuner Tablos. The Firestick is the latest 4k max, the FireTV is a 2023, the Android TV is a couple years old, and the rarely used Roku 4k express is less than a year old.

Your post did remind me that I should see how the Roku is behaving and I will let you know if I experience a similar issue using it as well. I do hope you and I are not the only ones having this problem!
