Case to prevent accidental button pressing

I was hoping the remote had an option where I have to double tap a button for it to function. I couldn't find anything like that.

Re: Case to prevent accidental button pressing

Let me guess. You watch a lot of TV in bed?🤣😅

Yes, the buttons are very sensitive and will get bumped, especially in bed. Put your remote somewhere it won't get bumped. Pretty simple, but yeah, I had the same complaint when I first got a Roku, but I've learned to adapt and change my habits appropriately.
