Streaming App freezes when scrolling through channels.

When scrolling through channels on my Samsung and Amazon devices ( 2 phones and 2 tablets) the app freezes when attempting to scroll through the channels.  Then generates an error "Streaming isn't responding, Close App, Wait, Send Feedback"   If I click Send Feedback I get "Market Feedback Agent keeps stopping"  This has started happening within the last few weeks.  Have cleared caches, data and done several reinstalls and reboots.  Nothing fixes this.  It looks to be v 6.15.0.020.  So far support doesn't seem to have a clue.  Anybody else with this issue.

After being transferred around quite a bit, I finally got to someone in "Advanced Repair".  They deprovisioned all our devices and we closed out our Stream apps on all our devices and restarted and things seem to be ok now.

Well, I am sorry to have to take this back as the problem has re-occurred on all our devices.  Scrolling will freeze both the Steam and TV Remote Apps.

@XfinityNicolas​ I spent a lot of time with Advance Repair recently with a Tech at my house too (May 17).  Our modem was replaced, all connections tested.  WiFi is working fine.  The Stream App was uninstalled and reinstalled our profile (at Infinity) was reset.  Nothing has changed.  The Stream App and Remote TV App both freeze when scrolling through channels.  The Tech tested on my devices too and they froze.  Sure seems like a software bug as it is happening across 4 mobile devices....all Android.

@user_9a728e​ I agree with your conclusion. it seems rather obvious xfinity did something which introduced a bug.

I am having the same problem. It just started recently and is happening on all of my Amazon Firesticks.

I feel your pain.

I started having this problem two days ago. It's maddening. Can't get past Channel 39 before it locks up. Also won't display my favorites when I try to view channels that way to avoid scrolling. I *would* just watch my TV but after years without issues, my box suddenly went out last week. I've been working with Comcast tech reps to get it restarted, but it kept going out. After getting a new box (per tech's instructions) and replacing the power supply and cabling from the wall to the box and the box to the TV... still gives me RDK-10000. After all that effort, a big nothing burger. As an aside, all other devices and boxes in the home work.  There's a tech coming out tomorrow, so now I get to work on pulling everything out away from the wall.

I get that problems happen, but for the monthly price we pay I expect more from Comcast. I'm frustrated with being told to tighten my cable connections, or the assumption that it's always on my end. My setup couldn't be simpler, but the Comcast network has a lot of moving parts. If the equipment or network isn't reliable, at least develop AND MAINTAIN a stable app.

Sorry. Didn't mean to go off there. Just very frustrated with Comcast this week.

@user_0484f0​ I feel your pain. I wish more people would complain so that this would get fixed.   Not only do the Remote Control and Stream apps lock up when scrolling but the streaming app itself is awful...constantly stops and buffers, interrupting your programs. Comcast has tried to blame this on my network but ALL my other streaming apps work fine.  I feel so ripped off having to pay for this part of my service while they just shrug it off.    One thing I have learned is that if you use Browse or Search and put in your channel number you can get past the stuck spot, at least for that show you want to watch.

This is certainly not the experience that we want you to have with your streaming services @user_9a728e. My peers and I would like to look further into this so that you can fully enjoy your streamed shows and being able to properly use your remote control. Let's take a closer look into this together, please use the chat icon in the upper right to enter Direct Messaging. From there, go ahead and compose a new message to "Xfinity Support" and send us a message with your name and address.

We are having the same problems with scrolling and freezing on the Beta app on the Firestick. Tried everything multiple times.
