Accidentally hit Forget this device

Jump to solution

I have an external roku express and I use a mobile app on my phone to control it.  I accidentally hit "forget this device" and now I cannot figure out how to add it back to my mobile app

So go to your cellphone app click on devices, the express should be listed as a new device, click on it and it should now be connected.

Try this quick fix first before messing with settings that were fine a minute ago, or resetting, or calling down The Wrath upon Roku.

Roku app was fine unti I hit "forget this device." Mobile app would not find device again. After reading all the above and trying everything the only fix that worked was leaving the mobile app on searching for device, then unplugging the Roku TV, plug back in and let app search while Roku started up. Mobile  app found device, no trouble since.

Best guess is an update that needs a full shutdown and restart to work, and Roku never fully shuts down, even when you hit the power off button. So you have unplug and plug back in for a reboot.
