A few weeks ago, I purchased a first generation Roku player from woot.com for $39.99. I wanted it for a bedroom television and didn’t need the HD support. I wanted a simple unit to watch streaming Netflix before I go to sleep.
Well, it took a few weeks to get me (another issue, but whatever) and I unpacked it today. I went to hook it up and the wifi antenna doesn’t work. I spent a few hours on chat with tech support trying to work it out – but nothing.
I swapped units to see if the wifi signal was the issue (I have a XDS unit I bought last year) and it worked great.
I’m just upset that it isn’t working. I’ve contacted Woot for a replacement unit – but I’m sure this process will take some time. I’m going to document this because it upsets me.
