I've had roku player for about five years. Suddenly, the roku standard remote is acting erratically; it is bouncing around and I can't select the options I would like.
I've changed the batteries.
I tested the infrared signal from the remote by viewing it through the iPhone camera and it is working.
Also, the roku player is quite warm to the touch. I unplugged the roku receiver/player to let it cool down for 10 minutes and it allowed me to make some random new selections.Should I replace the remote or the player or both?
I hope that I can get some advice for troubleshooting this unit soon.
I think you should replace the roku and it will come with a new remote. Newer roku with wifi remotes will have tv controls like volume and mute.
