Intermittant loss of sound

When using the various Roku devices and Directv Stream I will have episodes where the sound will disappear for 1-2 seconds, 2 or 3 times. Unplugging the device for a minute solves the problem, but it will recur.  This is becoming very annoying.  I see notes from a year ago about this.

Recording First Run showings only

When I select a Series I want to get only First Run showings. Instead I get not only the First Run on the local network channel but also the reruns on a channel like USA.  How can I set up only First Run showings?

Pause live tv

How do I pause live TV? When I hit pause it does pause but when I hit play just a few minutes later it picks up at the live spot. I can't leave the room for a few minutes without missing parts of a program. I hate this!

Can you do a 30 second skip on your recording?

Fast forwarding a recording is good but a little difficult. People have mentioned 30 second skips. Is this possible with the Streaming remote. Also on the Guide, is it possible to do a page dow rather than just 1 channel at a time? Solved - Just found out if you use the right and left arrows near

Are there any streaming boxes with a remote as good as DTV's

I have posted here about my problems with DTV streaming box. Three out of three went bad after a few days.  I'm now using a Roku ultra, but the remote leaves a lot to be desired.  The DTV one goes directly to channels, does 30 second skip perfectly, has 12 hour skip on the guide, etc.&nbs
