This sounds IR interference from another source in the room, do you have IR repeater set up to control your components from another room? Check the other remotes in the room is one in a cushion or with a book on top of it?

Re: Roku express ir control

It is not unknown for fluorescent lighting to sometimes cause interference with IR control. Once I had a VCR on which I had to tape a cardboard tube around the IR sensor so that it could only "see" signals from the front.
