Cuts to Home Screen every 1-2min of streaming

Hi! Ever since the 9.4 update (11/14/20), my roku will exit to the Home Screen while mid-stream after like 1min. This happens to every channel/app. 

I’ve tried deleting the channel and redownloading. I’ve tried system restart. Ive tried physically unplugging. I’ve tried turning off the bandwidth saver. I’ve tried not using it for a couple days. 

plz help!!!

Re: Cuts to Home Screen every 1-2min of streaming

I have not much to suggest other than the usual make sure you're using the supplied power adapter.  Returning to the Home Screen is often an indication that the channel/app is crashing, but if it's happening to multiple channels/apps then I'm really at a loss.

I had a similar problem setting up my Streambar. In my case I found that turning off “1-touch play” under the System - Control Other Devices menu fixed this issue for me.
