Roku Ultra Remote with Headphone Jack Eats Batteries after few days
What is the deal and how do I fix the battery issue with this remote. Got new Roku Ultra last year to use with Frame TV and specifically bought model with headphone enabled remote. Replacing batteries after 2 days... they are brand new batteries. Help!
I think short of Roku replacing the remote or purchasing the rechargeable remote (https://www.roku.com/products/accessories/roku-voice-remote-pro), I find using the Roku mobile Remote App (available in Play/Apple store for phones/tablets) the better method for Private listening. Can basically be charging your phone while using the Private Listening feature if you wish. Allows you to use either bluetooth or wired depending on the mobile device.
As @renojim mentioned, I have not seen a "fix" short of replacement or using alternate method.
