Roku TV 10.0 update may have distorted its game mode
A user posted on the Roku online community page that the TV’s game mode is creating problems when switched on. After the update, the picture on the screen stutters every 5-10 seconds whenever the game mode is switched on. This doesn’t happen when the game mode is off. However, the user added that video games are unplayable on the TV because of the stuttering. There have been several replies to this post. Most responses agree with the post; hence, other users are also facing the same issue.
However, there’s no official fix as yet. The company representative noted the problems.
We assure users that a fix will be out soon as Roku is already investigating the issue. Users don’t need to despair.
We urge the Roku TV users to have patience as a fix is on the way.
