Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

Can you please try going into the roku setup menu, and set the output format/resolution to 720p, and let me know if that helps?
Also do you ever have any similar issues on other inputs (cable/satellite, dvd/bluray, etc)?
