Re: Keeps kicking me out of my apps and back to the home screen

I don't have a Roku TV I have the device and it's only a little over a month old and the last 2 days the Very Local App doesn't work.  I go in it and it kicks me out.  I have checked for updates, and restarted the system. Nothing worked.  Any Advice?

Re: Keeps kicking me out of my apps and back to the home screen

I figured it out after doing some research.  I had to uninstall the app, then restart the system and then reinstall the app.  After I did all that the app worked!  Hope this helps someone else!!

Re: Keeps kicking me out of my apps and back to the home screen

I tried everything suggested by users for a new Roku stick, not a Roku TV, and had no success, so I returned it, got an Amazon fire stick and it works great.  Interestingly, I have 2 old Rokus that work perfectly.

Re: Keeps kicking me out of my apps and back to the home screen

Did all the above steps, even bought a new Roku (streaming stick). It worked for a day, then every time I go to listen to music on Amazon Music, it kicks me out after 2-10 or so songs(it's always different), and takes me back to the home screen. I have a SANYO. It never used to do this until about a month or two ago.

Keeps kicking me out of my apps and back to the Home Screen on Streambar.

Just hooked up my Roku Streambar   

Issue in every app. DirecTV, Paramount+, and the usual others  

All updates done. 
I’ve done everything suggested by moderators (restart, delete/reinstall, check WiFi, etc.). 
NOTHING fixes issue. 
Please provide new solutions.

Why do you people keep asking for help on this forum. Obviously no one from Roku has any answers. 
you would be better off consulting an  Ouija board.

Dear John

the problem is not with “playback” if you had followed the thread you would know that the problem is Roku returning you to the Home Screen randomly while you are trying to enjoy the service you paid your hard earned money for. 
I am sure you would be hailed as a hero if you had a solution other than the old talking points IE. Unplug, reset, update, replace batteries bla bla bla
