Added Pandora on button two after saying open pandora - get odd screen

Using the feature of the voice remote, I say "open pandora" and it opens a screen and plays my last requested station.  This screen has no options like I get when I open Pandora manually, and I cannot change stations or do anything else.

The new button two works, but I prefer the screen and options I get when I open Pandora manually. 

Why is the hot key based Pandora screen limited?

Any ideas on this?  Should I ask Pandora?  I can provide images if needed.

You should probably ask Pandora, but what happens if you press the Back button (upper left button) on the remote once the channel loads?

I hear the audio feedback click, verifying I hit back, but Pandora does nothing and keeps on playing the current song.

Yes I can confirm what the OP is seeing when opening the pandora via the voice control. No control to move on to the next selection, or change stations. I have wifi voice remote with an actual pandora key and it works perfectly. I guess its a bug.

From a response from Pandora, there are 2 pandora apps on the Roku device.

I sure wish I could open the main one from a hot key on my remote, because the second app really doesn't let me do much of anything.
