The TWiT app on my Roku stopped working a couple of days ago. Once it loads, the main show list appears as normal (and the ‘album art’ is all showing okay) but when I select one of them from that main list, it no longer shows the list of available episodes. It does show the screen for them, along with the expected options along the top (e.g. ‘Security Now Video’ and ‘Security Now Audio’) but below that is a blue screen, empty but for the word ‘Retrieving…’.
To be honest, I only use the Roku for TWiT shows (I regularly follow several TWiT shows per week) so to check it likely wasn’t a fault with the Roku, I installed the AmateurLogic.TV app (which would appear to be of a broadly similar style of app to the TWiT one) and that does work okay. Incidentally, unlike with the TWiT app, the Amateur Logic one is a single show app, so it immediately launches into the list of episodes - so it’s not of quite the same design - but the episodes are all showing and after one has been selected, it does play the video stream okay.
As the forum doesn’t appear to be flooding with posts about Roku’s not working, I’m assuming it isn’t a global problem with the Shiftkey app, so I’m now wondering if it might be a regional issue (I’m in the UK) or even an ISP related issue (I’m using Sky for broadband) and thus I’m wondering if any other UK Roku users have tried viewing TWiT shows over the past two days?
All the best,
NB I do have YouTube on the TV and the TWiT shows work when using that, so all is not lost, but the inserted adverts are somewhat irritating (to say the least)!
Edit: After lunch, I’ll Wireshark it and see where (or if) it’s calling out to get the episodes (and see if there’s any response) then I’ll post back.
