Okay. It's been six days since RokuTannerD assured me that one of their folks was going to reach out to me on this issue. And, just like time I got such a promise.... I've heard nothing from them. I don't know why they don't just say they haven't a clue how to fix the issue nor why they continue to promise a level of support/assistance they have no intention of actually providing.
@summersrl Thanks for following up. I double checked, and our support team did reach out to you on January 29th as stated.

That's not very reassuring as I am currently awaiting a replacement remote! I will post my experience (good or bad) after receiving the replacement.

Hi Connie. I can feel your pain. That said.... what you describe sounds (to me, anyway) like a wifi issue, not a Roku issue. If the phone cannot find the Roku - and you cannot change channels on the Roku - that sounds like the Roku is not connected to your wifi. I'm not a network engineer so don't take this as gospel, but I suspect that either your wifi is down (easy to check - can you access any internet site with a computer or your phone with the phone's data connection turned off?) or the Roku needs to be reconnected to the wifi (settings menu).
Regardless, I doubt the connection issue is related to the constant battery icon issue.
@Connied68 Thanks for the note here. Sorry to hear about the issue you are running into with your remote. I would recommend trying to reboot both your Roku device, and your wireless router/modem to see if this helps. In order to use the Roku mobile app, your phone will need to be connected to the same wireless network as your Roku device. It should then appear when searching for devices to connect to.
If you'd like more help with your remote issues, please send me a private message with your Roku account email address and your preferred contact phone number. I'll have a member of our support team follow up to assist you further.
