A few weeks ago my Roku Ultimate remote just started burning through batteries. I have another Ultimate that uses the same kind of batteries and I haven't had any issues with the remote for that Roku. Here is the faulty Roku information:
I'm currently testing behavior issues, but I'm pretty certain that's not causing it. The remote gets put into a basket while being watched as well as for the night. Same behavior before this issue started. Currently double checking my warranty to see if I'm still inside the limit. Any troubleshooting info anyone has would be fantastic.

I've found the button response on my Roku3 to be incredibly sensitive. I've interrupted many a non-Roku viewing because the slightest pressure on a Roku remote button causes a response that triggers my tv to switch to the HDMI to which the Roku is attached thanks to having CEC set up. Make sure, when in the basket, that its position doesn't put pressure on any of the remote buttons.
