@Farmer 

I'm not clear on your setup. How many Roku devices do you have? It reads like you might have a Roku TV with a Roku Express attached to it. Is that correct? If not, re-state the issue with a little more information about your devices.

Re: After going to tv channel my Roku is back to homescreen

I believe I know what @Farmer is saying - when you switch the TV (non-Roku) source from the HDMI input where the Roku is connected to another source the Roku returns to the Home Screen.  It used to remain in the channel/app and still streaming if it was streaming before the source was changed.  I've seen similar complaints, but I don't think there's any way to prevent that from happening.  Whether it is model specific or specific to some firmware update I couldn't say.
