Take the batteries out of your remote and use the Roku app on your phone/tablet as a remote and see if it still happens.
Thanks for the follow up.
If you are still unable to resolve the issue after following the recommended step that @renojim mentioned, please send me a PM (private message) with your Roku account email address, and include the serial number of the Roku device from Settings>System>About along with a summary of the issue you are experiencing. I'll be able to assist you further from there.
Thank you for reply Danny. I put the Roku app on my cell phone so for the moment, that is working well. I am so thankful!
Question: I would prefer that I could control it from a separate devise. If I buy a new devise will my account transfer automatically by just putting in batteries into the new devise?
Thank you for your suggestion. I have downloaded the app on my cell phone and it working good for now. Thank you!
So if you use the app on your phone then it doesn't go to Sling, correct? That would point to a bad remote (most likely a stuck or shorted button). You don't need to get a new device - just a new remote unless you want to take it apart and clean it (not an easy task). If you do get a new device and link it to the same Roku account all your channels/apps and subscriptions paid through Roku will transfer automatically, but you may have to log into some channels/apps again.
I'm having the same problem, my remote randomly goes to Sling. I tried to send you a PM but I didn't see how to do that.
Thanks for the post.

Thanks for the post.
Does your remote have a Sling TV quick button on the remote? If so, have you checked to see if the button is stuck?
