Grid Channel Shifting Jumping

We have grid style setup for our Roku channel. We are getting numerous reports of the channel shifting or jumping after playback. We have video showing the issue. This all started after firmware release by Roku in January 2015. Anyone experiencing this issue and is there a fix?

Link to demo of issue.

Re: Grid Channel Shifting Jumping

Yes, if you are setting the grid location after a video has played, then you will need to add a 'sleep' command in there to give it time it needs before resetting the position.
(or something along those lines). It's a known issue as of the firmware update.

The grid jumping is happening regardless of whether we reset the index or not, so there's no place for us to actually add a sleep in the code, as it's not being triggered by the channel code in the first place. We are using XML to load the grid.
