I think the competition will have something similar. But no, there's no way to disable the battery warning. Not certain why you would want to, as it only appears for a brief amount of time and it's providing worthwhile information.

Program Options are good. It is not a useful feature when it displays for weeks and covers 10% of the screen.

I've never seen a battery warning like that. Usually it's just a small icon in the upper right corner of the screen that goes away after about 5 seconds after waking the Roku. But again, it's unlikely you'll find another device that doesn't offer the same warning  and with an ability to disable. 

And if you've had a low battery warning for weeks, why not replace the batteries? From my experience the warning doesn't appear until you're down to somewhere around 30% remaining, and alkaline batteries tend to drop pretty fast once they get that low.

I was considering stock in Roku, not lead battery parts. Throwing money and time at battery change outs is worse than putting up with the battery reminder every time I press a button, but either are very far from ideal.

Maybe there is an ideal solution in the future, maybe not.

Alternate suggestion and likely quicker to code. Have the low battery pop up once per hour maximum. If this were happening on a tablet every time you pressed the screen people would lose their minds. this is a horrible feature as currently implemented.

Again, I've never seen the low battery alert pop up during use. It will appear when I hit the home button to wake it up, and is gone in about 5 seconds. After than I've never seen it again while the Roku was in use. And it's just a small icon in the upper corner. I'm not seeing what you are describing.

Tomorrow the Roku forum admins will be here, and will likely offer to assist you with contacting them.
