Search bar on home screen

Recently, Roku added a combined Search and Continue Watching to the list of channels. It's above the top home, or below the last entry. Right where the two rollover when you scroll up from  home.

It was OK at first, but now on one of my Roku's, EVERY TIME I wake it up from sleep, it is sitting at that Search line instead of the last used channel. This is NOT acceptable.

Re: Search bar on home screen

Please allow users to disable things like this, it's already easy to search on Roku and I don't need everyone to see my continue watching list. It also includes titles from an app I don't even have installed anymore...

Re: Search bar on home screen

This feature and previously watched are garbage. Just more useless items in the home screen that you can't remove. Expect this nonsense from Firestick, not roku.
