How to Ungroup the TV Inputs?

I used to have HDMI1 (Computer) and HDMI2 (TiVo) as the first two options on my Roku grid, but now they've been hidden in a TV Inputs group.

I don't want them grouped. I tried moving them out, but no luck. How can I do this?

I would also like to ungroup the inputs. Who thought this was a good idea?

This change is being sent out as a test to a "lucky" group of users.

For now, you're stuck with it.  Make your opinion known to Roku, favorable, unfavorable, or suggestion for improvement.  Posting here in the Community is one way to do it.

This sucks. Please make it an option in settings.

I'd like to add my dismay at this development.  As an option, OK. But otherwise no. 


Re: How to Ungroup the TV Inputs?

I absolutely HATE this. I don't want to go through extra screens just to select my input. I had them in the order I wanted them for quick access. This should not be a thing it is terrible and inconvenient. If we have to have this terrible thing make it optional not mandatory. 

Again this is terrible and I hate it makes me not want to even use the tv. I'm about to switch it with another TV in the house I don't use as much I hate this so much. 


Re: How to Ungroup the TV Inputs?

This change relegates my prime reason for this television to an annoying process, as I use my tv for a computer monitor primarily. It seriously makes me consider getting a non smart tv and then use a streaming box like Apple TV so I can choose the actual input I want without more steps.

What has gone wrong with Roku? Do they have anybody who actually uses their product on their design team?

I have (had now) my computer as the first, then two streaming channels, then a bluray player, etc. Now I have to click an extra time continuously?

Roku, actually listen to your community and get rid of this stupidity!

I cannot STAND this option. It adds an extra step to my process, and it has confused all of my/my wife’s older family members
