Spectrum app and ROKU TV

Running 225m download and tv is 10 feet from a Google Nest router.

Experiencing buffering only while using Spectrum native app. Works fine on iPad from same location.

Upgraded to 440m service but waiting for router - seems that may not resolve the issue from other poster’s comments.

Is the ultimate solution still a cable box in 2020 for Spectrum?

Thanks in advance

    What model roku and os version?

    The "lighter weight" models do not have a lot of resources, which tends to cause issues with newer versions of some streaming apps.

    What model Roku are you using? If you are able to bypass the router and connect the Roku directly to the modem do you have the same issue? What you describe is almost always attributed to a connection issue, bypassing the router would give us a bit more information.

    It is a ROKU TV; connected by WiFi; in the same room with Google Mesh router so should be fine.

    I upgraded to Ulta today (provisioning was incorrect) so will test later today.

    Appreciate the suggestions.

    @MJRossOH Should be but not always is. I'm glad to hear you have had the provisioning corrected.

    Please let us know if you are still having trouble. Our next step would be to bypass that router to see

    what we get there.

    Have a good rest of the day!
