How to automate an ENTER every 2 or 3 hrs on my roku ultra?

I have a related question.  I have the Roku bandwidth saving turned off but one of my channels (Frndly) wants some activity every two hours or it stops streaming.  Is there a way to automatically send a command to the Roku?  I was hoping that there would be some software out there to accomplish this.

Hey @gbguy71

Thanks for the post.

Please be advised that some streaming channels like Frndly TV employ their own mechanism to cease data usage after a specific period of inactivity. These features will not be affected when you disable Bandwidth Saver on your Roku device. 

We would recommend reaching out to Frndly TV Support to see if they have any additional settings or options within their channel that may allow the functionality you are looking for.

You can contact them here:

I hope this helps!

All the best,
