Roku Express freezing

Hi. I looked all over and I dont see my problem listed anywhere, also I'm posti6here cause rather wasnt an option for my issue. So let me start by saying I already check the location of the roku Express device and the remote. There is no interference and there is a straight path to the receiver nothing is obstructing it from getting the remote signal. Second I check batteries and they r fine. So here is my issue. I turn tv on, press any button on roku remote and get a response, if I'm lucky it may let me get to the app I'm trying to use. Mostly Pluto and YouTube. But that's when I'm lucky. If not It freezes right before I even get a chance to make a second input. And it just stays there no response. I have to wait like 1 minute before pressing any other buttons or it just wont do anything. Same happens if I have a app open. I press any buttons like trying to scroll to a menu it has become impossible. This started happening about 3 days ago. I have restarted the device many times. Just really annoying to the point that if today I find no solution I'm tearing it off stomping on it and throwing it out the window( I live on a 27th floor.) So please if anyone knows what the **bleep** is going on with my device before I lose my mind and do something stupid. Thanks.

Re: Roku Express freezing

I know it doesn't make sense, but have you also tried restarting/rebooting your modem and/or router?  If you can, give the Roku app a try on your phone and use it to control your Roku.  See if the problem occurs.
