Roku smart remote playing "find remote" noise repeatedly

Hi, 

I have the Roku Ultra with smart remote. The find remote function keeps triggering every few minutes. Pressing any key on the remote gets it to stop, but it then triggers automatically again a few minutes later. 

This is very annoying. I highly doubt the function was intended to require the operator to press a remote button every 5 minutes. It does not seem to have a software disable in the settings menu, so we have actually been pulling out the batteries as a hack. 

I have tried pairing the remote again, but that did not alleviate the issue.

Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the post.

Please send me a PM (private message) with your Roku account email address, and include the serial number of the Roku device from Settings>System>About along with a summary of the issue you are experiencing. I'll be able to assist you further from there.

 

Thanks,
Danny

My new Roku Ultra is doing the same. Very irritating!  The find my remote spontaneously comes on and you have to push a button to stop it. Then shortly later it does it again.

I'm having the same find remote intermittent sounding off when I'm not using Roku. (Yes the power is on the receiver, but not watching it.) You say to PM you, but I don't know how to get your email to do that and send you the Roku Ultimate information you are asking for. Thanks for any help!
