Re: Roku watching back to home screen

Hi @Sj68

Thanks for reaching out to the Roku Community. 

We apologize to hear about your experience. Could you confirm if the issue only occurs on a specific channel or all channels on your Roku device? Aside from returning from the home screen, do you receive an error message or code? 

Keep us posted with the details. 


Regards,
