Roku stick not responding to remote

My Roku stick has quit responding to my remote.

Yes, I've unplugged the Roku, let it sit for a little while and plugged it back in.

Yes, I checked the batteries on the remote.  In fact, I tried three different remotes and the stick wouldn't respond to any of them.  However, the remotes work fine with an older Roku stick I had in a drawer.

The problem is the Roku stick. Q.E.D.

Any ideas on how to fix this?  The stick is less than two years old.  I expected it to last longer than that.
