Roku Ultra would return to Home Screen when pressing arrow or back buttons in apps

Model: 4670RW- Roku Ultra

Software Version: 9.4.0 * Build 4176-46

Network: Wifi 5Ghz


Remote: Enhanced Voice Remote

Model: RC412

Firmware Version:


Channel info:

YouTube (version 1.0 * build 91000130)

PlutoTV (version 5.7 * build 7)

Netflix (version 5.1 * build 98096402)

The Roku Channel (version 2.9 * build 42)


My issue: When watching YouTube I noticed that when I pushed a button (an arrow button, OK, left arrow), it would sometimes make the sound and go to the Home Page. As if I pushed the Home button.

this happened when:

* I try to skip an ad on youtube (presssed OK)

* push an arrow button to show the player controls

* pushing the back button

* using the arrow keys to scroll through the list of videos

This issue might take minutes or hours for it to appear. When I was having this issue I opened other channels (PlutoTV, Netflix, The Roku Channel) and was able to reproduce the issue while either watching videos or going through the list of what videos are available. 

I also noticed that I don't seem to encounter this issue when using the Roku Mobile app as a remote or if I use headphone with the Enhanced Voice Remote.

Any help is appreciated.
