After long idle, Home Button stops working until Roku Express 4k+ is reset
Before continuing to the problem I will say that I have my Roku set in guest mode so it doesn't sync with the other one in the house. I have not used it in non-guest mode for some time.
On to the problem.
After a couple days of not using the roku, the Home button on the remote does nothing but make the blue light flicker. Pressing it repeatedly or holding it continues to make the blue light flicker while nothing happens. The rest of the remote appears to work normally.
I can only get the home button to work again by resetting the device or unplugging it and then plugging it back in, which is basically the same thing.
I am not sure when this problem started. It has happened for over a week is the best I can say.
To reproduce: wait 2 to 3 days, maybe 4, without using the device in guest mode, then use the device. The home button stops doing anything for me after that time. I do not know if this works outside of guest mode, I just leave it in guest mode all the time.
