XTV Isn't Working Right
« on: October 06, 2016, 01:54:01 PM »
Here is what you can do to do when XTV is not working right.

First of all take a deep breath, it will be all right. We know XTV is an incredibly awesome private channel on Roku. When it works this channel is off the charts awesome and it will spoil you very quickly.



Add the XTV Channel to Your Roku

Here are few things you should know about XTV:

1. XTV is not a replacement or substitute for a paid streaming TV service. No matter how much you wish it to be so, it just won't happen. First of all, XTV is a private channel that is supported by donations. This means that probably only 1 in 10 people who enjoy and use the channel actually donate any money to the developer. Paid streaming channels charge a monthly fee which is used to pay for faster servers and channel content.

2. The content comes from free sources on the web. Their live channels are provided by public IPTV links, this means that often the servers these links come from are overloaded by free users. Signs you may notice this is happening is stopping and starting of the live stream for several seconds. Live channels that won't play at all or are simply gone.

3. Content is in poor SD resolution. Another way free public servers save bandwidth is by only offering lower resolution video feeds.

Private IPTV services are hosted on private servers. These are expensive to operate, they have a limited amount of customers and to provide more bandwidth and faster access time it costs a lot more money. This is why you can watch services like Netflix, and almost all of the time the video you want to watch starts and plays great even though they have millions of subscribers.

Live TV services like Sony PlayStation Vue work the same way. You are not only paying for content programming, you are also paying for high-quality video hosting that can keep up with and scale with user demand.

For what it is the XTV channel really works very well and they do offer a ton of free content. Just don't be surprised, or get upset when you go to turn to your favorite show and it's not there or won't stream reliably. It's just the nature of IPTV, and not really the channel developer's fault.

When XTV is not working right, be sure to do a Roku system update. This will refresh all your channels and any changes or new IPTV feeds the developer may have added will now show.

You can also go into your Roku Settings Menu/System and do a Roku update from there.

If this still does not fix the channel or bring back the content you wanted to see, it may be a few days before the developer locates a new video source so always check back.

Another alternative Roku channel you can try for Live TV is FilmOn or try a free 45-day trial to USTVNow.


Hopefully, this clears up some of the mystery why XTV won't play certain videos or shows. If you enjoy the XTV Roku channel, don't forget to send the developers a few bucks to thank them for their efforts. ;)

Sometimes the live channels will pause and then play or not work at all. That's why you can't beat a paid IPTV service.

I am trying to set up my Roku 2 for the first time. I'm using HDMI cable. I hear the Roku start up, but I get no menu so I can't have it find my wireless. Is it a faulty Roku device?

Mary, it sounds like you may be on a different video input. Do this, when your Roku is on and you can hear the Roku start up, switch video inputs with your TV's remote to make sure your HDMI cable will initiate proper HDMI handshaking. Go to each of your inputs till you see a picture.

If you still don't see the picture on your Roku, try swapping HDMI cables and make sure both ends are plugged in firmly to both your TV set and your Roku.

If this does not work, try plugging another device into the same HDMI cable and see if you can then get a picture on that device. This will tell you your TV, Video Port and HDMI cable are all good.

On some TV's the HDMI port can actually be turned off from the TV settings. If you don't get a picture on either device, that would also be a place I would check.
