TV crashes with 'Pokemon Sword Shield'

When you play the Nintendo Switch game software 'Pocket Monster Sword Shield ' released on November 15, 2019, Roku compatible media streaming terminals such as the smart TV 'Roku TV' used by connecting to the Internet will be released. Problems have been reported with boot loops that repeatedly restart.

The first person to address this issue was The Based Slots , a user of the overseas bulletin board site reddit. In response to a post by The Based Sloth on reddit's Roku-only forum, ' Insignia Roku TV has boot-looped,' Roku's official account said, 'When you play the latest Pokemon series on Nintendo Switch, some Roku terminals will be released. I'm aware of the issues that are affected. Not using the Nintendo Switch or using it in in-flight mode should fix the issue, 'but didn't reveal the details of the issue.

The next person who faced this problem was

Maz Inger-Z , also a reddit user. Mr. MazInger-Z, who saw a post on SNS that Roku is having trouble with causing an abnormality, said that when he actually tried using two Roku Streaming Sticks, both did not work properly. While MazInger-Z was experimenting with the problem, MazInger-Z's wife was just playing Pokemon Sword on the Nintendo Switch.

Therefore, MazInger-Z and his wife, who have the knowledge as an engineer, decided to investigate the cause in detail. First, when MazInger-Z's wife uses the network analysis software Wireshark to look at the communication status of Roku and Nintendo Switch, from the Nintendo Switch playing Pokemon Sword, to find other players It turns out that packet communication is being sent. When MazInger-Z and others analyzed this communication, it was very similar to the data packet used by Roku.

Therefore, 'I think this bug is due to the fact that Roku's terminal cannot distinguish between its own data packet and the data of YY communication of Pokemon Sword Shield,' MazInger-Z concludes. In fact, according to Roku's advice, when MazInger-Z switched the Nintendo Switch to airplane mode, MazInger-Z's Roku terminal started working normally.
