Roku Ultra phantom remote actions without a button press.

Roku Ultra will sporadically go back to home or function as if the back button was pressed when in any application, when no one is touching the remote.  I'm not sure if the remote is issuing a phantom command or if it's the device itself.  Sometimes this won't happen for a couple of days and then it will happen all day, in between reboots, changing batteries and also cutting the power for a minute.

It is on the latest update.

Any ideas? Would a factory reset possibly solve the issue?
