Roku Remote isn't working

My remote just started spamming random buttons, sometimes it stops spamming but all of the buttons are messed up. I changed the batteries and factory reset the TV, but nothing works. Please help.

Re: Roku Remote isn't working

I had the multiple clicks thing happen to me today with a voice remote pro, never had that before. I wonder if it's related to whatever update is causing the continue watching bar, seems to have started around the same time
