Soundbar Issues - volume control lag, home button and power button not working, etc.

I have a Smart Soundbar. Was working great, then about a month ago:

List of issue:
- Lag when adjusting the volume up/down, several second delay when up/down on volume, sometimes the commands will stack and then the Roku will just reboot.
- Power button will not turn the Roku on/off, it use to.
- Home button will not change the TV input to Roku, it use to, light blinks on Roku when pressing the home button but nothing happens.
- Roku will not respond sometimes and will reboot itself

The soundbar was working great until about a month ago, then one day all of this. Its like they pushed an update that messed it up.

Roku support says it is the remote. But I tried the Roku app on my phone, which has a remote built into it, and it does the same exact things with the app remote. I also updated the batteries in the remote and repaired it with the soundbar, no fix.

They also said they were shipping a new remote but that was 2 weeks ago.

When I talk with Roku support, only via email, all they say is that they have updated my support ticket but they don't tell me anything to help. And btw, I don't know where to see the updates to the support ticket. I have looked, no place to see Service Requests that I have posted.

Has anyone been experiencing these things?

Can anyone help?
