Hi there, I’m having the same issue as @spbhello where the auto OTA is failing due to “write failed” every few minutes.

Remote model RC409

Remote firmware 2.01.19.100

Please advise on how to fix this thank you!

Yes also experiencing fast battery drain, I need to change batteries each week. I tried emailing the support and they told me to do a system restart to prompt the remote firmware update. I’ve tried that but the firmware didn’t change, so going into the platform menu I see that the OTA update for the remote firmware keeps failing but keeps reattempting to update and failing too.

Re: Roku remote draining battery in 2 days

Hello,

we are having the same problem, so we take the batteries out of the remote when not in use. It’s a hassle, but at least we are not buying batteries once a week…

I got a replacement remote from Roku about 2-3 weeks ago and I thought this would solve the problem but instead of losing battery life in 2-3 days I’m now losing battery life in 2-3 weeks… I have the latest RC399 with firmware rtn.4120… there MUST be a setting that’s draining the battery. What do I have to turn off? -Frustrated Roku Owner… how is this stock almost $300/share

@jex

Thanks for the follow up.

Are you using the private listening feature with your remote? How often are you using your remote?

If you are still experiencing an issue with your remote battery draining, we would recommend continuing to work with our Support team to see what other assistance they can provided.

 

Thanks,
Danny

Hi, @RokuKariza-D 

Following up as it’s been a week. Should I have heard from Roku support by now? I have not done so.

 

Also, update: turning off my remotes’ firmware auto update has ended the rapid battery drain. Now I am just interested in learning why the remote kept trying to update and why the update process perpetually failed to complete?
