Netflix menu is extremely slow

The menu has been incredibly slow, making browsing all but impossible. If I hit the arrow in the menu, it takes maybe seven or eight seconds to move one box (tv show / movie) over. Once I pick a show or movie, it plays just fine with no buffering. Pauses, skips forwards and backwards, etc just fine. It is just the menu.

And I paid for the Netflix Instant Browser channel - that channel is also slow.

None of my other Roku channels do this though I really only watch Hulu and the CNET channel, besides Netflix.

This has been going on for a week or two. Any ideas?

It happens to me sometimes. I just unplug my Roku, wait a min, then plug it back in and everything works fine.

The Instant Browser Channel is always slow to load, but once it comes up navigating isn't too bad. It does run noticeably slower than other channels, though.

I haven't had this issue on any of my devices (Game consoles, tablets, computers), I'd e-mail Roku directly about it.

It happens on my Roku pretty often. Every few days, for sure. I do the same thing KillerCannibal does.

Thanks, unplugging it for a minute or so did the trick. I thought that the issue was with Netflix and not the Roku box, thus I didn't think to unplug it.
