Remote spams IR commands after restart

Jump to solution

I had this exact issue.  Your comment re: wake from sleep got me thinking.  I had previously powered the Roku stick from my TVs USB port; this is a problem since when I turn the TV off, the Roku powers off.  I have now started powering the Roku from a USB port on another device that does not shut down, therefore the Roku is always powered on and the IR spamming issue never occurs. 

It'd be nice if this bug were addressed, but for now I'm just glad that I don't have to immediately turn the remote away from the TV every time I turn it on.

Greetings from the Roku Community, @BT666!

Thank you for sharing your concern about powering your Roku streaming stick effectively. We want to be of assistance and provide you with further information about this. 

It is important to note that if you connect the power cable of your Roku streaming stick directly to your TV, the device will turn off automatically every time you power off your TV. To control your Roku streaming stick with your Roku remote through IR, it's essential to plug in the power cord directly into a power outlet or power strip.

This outcome was planned and executed in accordance with a specific purpose or objective.

Best regards,
Carly
