Roku switching to home screen when someone stands up

We’ve noticed that lately when someone stands while the Roku is playing Netflix or any other app really, it switches back to the home screen. Is there some sort of sensor that could be causing this?

Re: Roku switching to home screen when someone stands up

Do you have a lost/rogue remote in your couch? There's nothing in the Roku that would be sensitive to someone standing, but it could be getting a button press if there's a remote in your couch or chair.

Re: Roku switching to home screen when someone stands up

We thought that at first but we started keeping the remote on the table. Everything I stood up from the couch it would go to the home screen, with remote completely out of reach. It’s been the weirdest thing. It’s become quite a joke, we have to prepare everyone the shows about to stop. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Obviously you need to crawl on all fours and

roll on the floor when you can.

And do so quietly.

Many of us have gotten used to this over the years.

Its really not so bad after a while.
