It says problem solved when I googled it.... Where exactly in all these posts is the solution? Clicked "jump to solution" and did not get one... So not impressed with roku or Google for giving me a solved headline to click on with no solution other than trying to send a junk product back.
If the device is low use, take the batteries out when not in use. Shouldn't have to, but saves cost.
If not a stick, then look at getting a replacement IR remote. If a stick then maybe replace with a cheap Express which has IR remote, for low use, and use the stick elsewhere or reset and sell on/give away.
I have the same issue. My Roku Ultra (Serial #: YJ001Y394128) remote (RC136 in settings, or RC-AL4 in battery compartment) needs the batteries replaced approximately every two days. It's a financial drain as well as an environmental situation to be replacing batteries that often. There seems to be no answer to this issue anywhere I have looked. Even Roku does not appear to have a solution. Can anyone help please.
