I have dealt with a problem where my Amazon Fire TV plays choppy video and audio many times. The cause of this problem can differ depending on how and what you use on the device. I decided to use my experience to create this guide to troubleshoot this issue. Hopefully it helps you.
The final hurdle to get over before you can enjoy your Roku is getting it connected to the WiFi Network. Sometimes, the Roku won’t connect to WiFi like it should. You may also get an error that says “Error 014-40” when you attempt to enter your WiFi credentials. Here are some common solutions if your Roku doesn’t connect to the WiFi network.
I love the interface of the Roku. It’s so simple to use. I wanted to Connect my Roku box to a computer so that I could watch the content within the window on my computer. I know that may be strange to some folks, but navigating to the different video content providers is a much clunkier experience in a browser. It also helps to have it available to grab screenshots from the Roku.
The Amazon Fire TV has subtitle (otherwise known as Closed Captioning) features you can use for the hearing impaired. The feature allows you to read what is being said in the video you are watching.
There is a main place in the Fire TV settings where you can enable or disable subtitles. But each individual app may also have their own subtitle settings. Each app has a different way to access these settings. Here are steps to changing the main Fire TV subtitle setting as well as the way to change it in the most popular apps.
Roku users who watch Disney+ have been having problems with the app where they cannot turn off the audio guide narration voice. This is a problem where a voice describes everything on the screen that is happening. The feature is normally used for the vision impaired, but some users who don’t need it struggle to disable it.
Fortunately, we’ve come up with a couple of solutions that seem to work. Give these fixes a try.
If you ever want to cast the screen of your Android device to your TV, you can do it via the Roku Premier, 4, 3, or Streaming Stick using these steps.
This weekend I sat down to watch “Argo” using the Amazon Prime Video app on the Roku box. When I attempted to purchase and watch the movie on Amazon Instant, it threw an error on the screen. I could still hear the audio, but the blue and white error that said “HDCP unauthorised. Content disabled” error took up the entire screen.
Has your Amazon Fire TV device become frozen and is not responding to the remote? Sometimes the software just locks up right in the middle of using it. You can usually resolve the issue by resetting the device using these steps.
