Rokus are rather popular streaming devices that allow users to add ‘channels’ of their choice and watch TV over an internet connection. However, just like everything tech, they have shortcomings and run into bugs and errors from time to time.
In this article, we’re talking about the Roku error 014.30, its causes and what you can do to solve the problem.
What causes Roku error 014.30?
Roku error 014.30 is often caused due to internet connectivity issues or having weak internet signals if you’re streaming over cellular data.
How to fix Roku error 014.30?
Here are five solutions you can try to fix Roku error 014.30.
Check your internet connection
It’s also a good idea to keep an eye on your internet connection. 4k content is heavy on the bandwidth to stream, and if you don’t have enough of it, you can sometimes run into Roku error 014.30. At least 25mbps upload and download speeds are recommended.
Check your router settings
Check to see if you’ve enabled MAC address filtering on your router and, if you have, whether or not the Roku is allowed to connect. MAC address filtering can allow or block certain devices to connect to your router and, by extension, the internet depending on the settings.
Restart your Roku
Restarting your Roku and your TV is also a good idea and, more often than not, will fix any random issues you might face, including the Roku error 014.30.
