TiVo Roamio OTA and Roku streaming stick

I have these 2 items.

LOVE the Tivo! Never have a buffering or connection issue. Love that the remote controls the TV.

Meh on the Roku. Worked good for 1 week, now I can't get thru any show without it buffering every min or so. Called Roku, unplugged router and stick. Didn't fix the issue.

Contemplating taking it back and getting the Fire stick. I do want a remote. I'd get a mini but that would require a wired connection in some way.

Anyone have an opinion on the Fire stick?

Get a mini and use a wifi to Ethernet adapter on it and see how that works for you.

Both Roamio and Mini on WiFi work for me using ASUS and TiVo adapters.

My house will be for sale in about a month and I do not want to set up any extra wiring until I move.

My Roku 2 sometimes has streaming issues, but my Roku 3 really doesn't for the most part.
With a Tivo and Roku, my tv world is about as complete as it can be I think

That's why I said to get a wireless adapter.
