roku media player wont start

Earlier in the week I succesfully installed roku media player and used it to play from my dlna server.


Today however the app has stopped worked. 


I select the app, the screen goes blank as it appears to load. 

But after a few seconds the app returns to main screen. by main screen I mean the menu screen where the other apps are.


I've tried resetting the device and a power cycle but no joy.


can someone advise some trouble shooting / things to try etc.?

Try an update looks like they rolled it back to the old software.

Hello, I tried doing the update but it still won’t open the app, for a bit the other apps wouldn’t open either. Ready to return the unit.
