Re: [OS 11.5] Homescreen Font size changed

Yes. I have this same issue. To "work around" the problem I've been having to restart Roku 4802X every 1 to 2 days.


Homescreen fonts on left panel shrink to tiny size. When there is a forced Roky channel ad banner at bottom left of screen, the tiny fonts make the channel tiles move to the left and the forced ad banner covers part of the home tiles. 


Here's my setup

Roku 4802X

Most up to date OS version (I check for updates every day hoping it will get fixed along with power issue I've noted in another thread)

TV is Samsun 7 series 4K 75" TV


The only way I know how to fix it is to restart Roku, and the problem comes back in 1 or 2 days. I am visually impaired so this is extra troubling. I do not have any accessibility features turned on.
