New Problem popped up: It seems that while watching a few different channels for short periods of time that the stream will buffer and video will come back but sound doesn't. This happened 2 times yesterday morning, 1 time yesterday evening and then again 1 more time this morning. The only thing that would bring the audio back was hitting the Roku's back arrow key and then choosing the "Watch" option again which did in fact clear it up.
I had the same issue with a Roku 3 yesterday...

@I'd rather have @ComcastDan & @ComcastJessie spend their time addressing technical issues than what the pricing "might" be when the beta run is over. C'mon man.
This specific forum has been a "catch all" when it comes to information regarding the Xfinity app on Roku. I am a customer, not a Comcast employee, shouldn't we all be on the same team? So, I am not sure why my question is any less important than those asking questions about getting the App to work on unsupported devices?
Some of the technical issues that people are having could be solved by reading the updated post on the first page. However, they are still being asked and answered.
From what I can gather, from last 5 pages or so of posts, the thought of Comcast implementing some type of fee after the beta period ends is a relevant question and concern. One that if addressed, may have a positive impact on people providing feedback on the app (no fee = potentially more people trying the app and providing feedback).
Again, the article I am quoting is coming from a reputable tech website that was puplished a full day after the beta app launched (not the Variety article). Could they be wrong? Absolutely! I would love for them to be wrong, because a $7.49 fee to use the app is a non-starter for me. However, I tend think that reporting is fairly accurate.
I mean C'mon man, we are talking about a company that imposes fees whenever possible.
Agreed on this. Personally, the app seems to work about as well as I'd expect - that being said, the user experience overall is pretty far below that of what I can get on Sling. If the app worked well and the fees were nominal then I'd probably be inclined to drop Sling and increase the size of my tv package. On the other hand, if they wind up with a ~$8 per Roku per month charge, then it would be far more cost effective to continue to go with OTA (+Tablo) + Sling.
I think that Sling's model is more realistic to what the market would support - full portability but hard caps on concurrent streaming.
