Roku 3 Launches random app at startup.


I've been using a Roku 3 for many years now and a few weeks ago I decided to use one of the new themes. After loading one of the themes, I discovered that when I power my device up it randomly launches an app or channel and not the default home screen. I have not made any other changes to my home entertainment system in a few years so I’m thinking the theme must have caused this. I set the theme back to Roku default, but this did not resolve the issue. I then set my Roku 3 back to factory defaults thinking that this would resolve the issue, but it didn’t. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Roku 3 Launches random app at startup.


Thanks for the inquiry.

What channel/app is being launched at startup? Is there a quick button your remote for that channel by any chance?
