On one tv roku reverts to Home Screen after random time - happens on YouTube TVs and Amazon - Netflix works ok. Other rokus/tv’s work fine on same internet. Tried second roku express - same result - returns to home also. Tried posted solutions - factory reset - delete channel restore - unplug all - even let it rest overnight? And this setup has worked well previously???
any good ideas - would buy new tv but not sure it would solve issue?
Could your random time actually be four hours?
The Roku "Bandwidth saver" function kicks in when the Roku has received no user input in four hours. It asks if you are still watching, and if it receives no response, it exits the current stream and returns the Roku to its home page. If it sits there a while with no further input, it may then launch your screen saver, depending on your screen saver settings.
You can turn the Bandwidth feature on and off via Roku menu path Settings > Network > Bandwidth saver
Note that some individual channels may have a similar feature with their own time settings.
