Which one? One of those uses an IR remote, and the other uses a WiFi Direct remote. If there's an issue with your remote, that might make a difference.

Re: Sick of going back to main menu

I have a 2007 65 inch Samsung TV plasma it is not a smart TV so I used the Roku Express Plus and it is running from my wireless wi-fi. I hope that helped because I just bought it not even a month ago and I don't understand why it only lets me watch something for 3 minutes if even that and goes right back to the main menu I don't know what else to do I think I might need to get a new unit I was hoping not to I hope I could reset it but I've done everything I know how to fix it and it still goes back can you think of what might be wrong as far as me being able to fix the little box

Re: Sick of going back to main menu

The Express+ uses the WiFi Direct remote. And no Roku should exhibit the behavior as you describe.

When it stops playing and returns to the Home menu, does any message pop up? Does a "beep" accompany the action?

Re: Sick of going back to main menu

It is not impossible for this to happen many people on your community blog have complained about the same issue no it doesn't make any beep the only error that I've ever gotten it was a poor power or poor signal I bought two new cords and it's still doing it it just goes back to the main menu

Are you using the included power supply, or are you connecting to a USB port on a TV?
