When Connected to my TV, the current channel is switching to Youtube and flickers

I have connected my Ruku Ultra to Sony TV (75 inch) via HDMI. It has been working for almost one year. Recently, suddenly, while I am on YuppTV channel, it switches to Youtube and flickers. It does not get back to YuppTV until I press OK button from remote twice. Funny.

It switched occasionally and it is very annoying.

Does anyone has a problem with Roku Ultra (SN YJ00DX034540)?

Thanks in advance.

  • tracker ID when this issue occurs (when you see this issue occur, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times and provide us with this ID)
