I assume you mean you have to re-authorize fairly often? How often? Depending on the channel, I have found some need to be re-authorized weekly to monthly.
It happens daily.
I would estimate whenever I turn the unit off and back on again.
I don't usually leave the TV and the ROKU on all the time - just when watching.
This happened to me as well last evening. This morning my wife fired up Fox News Go on her laptop and logged into Xfinity. Once she did that the Rokus started working again. Frustratring if you don't have a computer handy. Not sure how often this will occur, I have only used Rokus (I now have three installed) for about a week and this was the first time. My intention is to get rid of unecessary cable boxes and reduce my monthly bill, but this makes it frustrating.
I have not yet contacted Comcast since it had only happened once when I commented. Now that I've been using my RoKus for a few days I see this happening daily. I'm going to try to open a ticket with Comcast and see if I can get some answers. If I get anything useful I'll post back.
Just spent an hour on chat with two different support agents. They have escalated my problem to their network engineers and said I should get a call in the next two days. So far not much progress, but we'll see what happens next.
I have to sign in after every time i turn the tv off...very annoying
can you turn off CEC for the HDMI connector you are using for the Roku or move the Roku to a non-CEC HDMI port? also do you eixt the xfinity app before changing inputs?
Still have the problem. Anyone found a solution other than trying to mirror stream Fox News to the TV with Chromecast or a similar device from a computer tuned to the Xfinity access provided there to its customers' lineup. Roku seems like a better way to do it if it did not have access blocked for some unknown reason.
Folks, after a week of fooling around trying to get Fox News Live to work more than once without recertification each time, I discovered this: Xfinity Streaming Channel Beta on Roku. Add this channel, go to the Live page where you should find Fox News. Problem solved
