Quick update here.
We believe this issue may now be resolved. Please go ahead and try launching the channel and signing in again, then test to see if your login information is retained when you exit the channel. If the issue continues to occur, you might try removing the channel once more, restart your device, then add the channel back again and test once more.
Keep me posted if you need any additional help!
I just finished reading through all the posts. I've done everything all the other people experiencing this problem have done - deleted the Pandora channel, rebooted Roku, reinstalled, updated SW, etc etc.
As of Sep 23 at 5:50, the problem still occurs. Device activation required every time I enter the Pandora app on Roku.
I initially contacted Pandora about this issue because it seems like a Pandora problem, but they claim the problem has been fixed and to contact Roku. So now it's a finger pointing situation. Roku says it is Pandora, Pandora says it is Roku.
Any new suggestions??? This problem is quite irritating and seems like it should be an easy one to fix.
I just purchased two new Chromecasts to replace two of my Rokus. This has been a travesty and Roku has been everything but helpful.
I will probably get an Apple TV tomorrow for the main living room and end my support for Roku permanently. I have heard a number of people expressing frustration, Roku's support page won't let me deal directly with a real person unless I have the latest version.
Roku broke these apps (and many more...hearing from friends that it also broke HBO) but is not helping nor trying to communicate. At least roll back to last known stable release on the devices. Nope....just have us jump through hoops and point fingers every which way.
So now I can listen to my Pandora effortlessly and watch Motortrend when I want without issue....because my streaming device is not a Roku.
