Re: Previous channel button not working

Encountered the same problem.  Unplugged the stick and plugged it back in and after going to a second channel, pushing the rewind (or backup) button worked again.  Thanks

Re: Previous channel button not working

On two different models of roku remotes, the back arrow button or the rewind button is the one that gets you back to a previous channel.  I have 4 remotes and they all work the same.

Re: Previous channel button not working

I'm looking at your remote photo and can tell you mine has 4 buttons; Netflix, Disney, hulu, 'n sling and NONE of the are a previous channel button.  I've used the reverse, pause, and forward arrows view recorded programs, movies.  Don't understand why this remote never came with a previous channel button.  My Samsung remote for both TV's have said button for their channels.

Re: Previous channel button not working

Hi @JoJo43

We would recommend rebooting your network and your Roku device. Then try removing the channels from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote, and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the channels back once more.

Does this clear up the issue you are seeing? Please keep us posted.


Warm Regards,
Lianna

Re: Previous channel button not working

The down arrow has the functiom of the ok button and nothing else works.The onky way i can fix it is if i take out the battery and put them back in.
