They should reappear under the "Devices" tab for you to reconnect them.

If not, just make sure both your phone/mobile device and the Roku devices are on the same network and then restart both the Roku mobile app and your Roku devices.

Re: Forge device issue on mobile app


I have the Roku remote app on my android phone.   When I have it on the Devices screen where I can choose the Roku I want to control, the app indicates it is searching for devices every 10 seconds or so.

I just told the Roku remote app on my android phone to forget one of my Rokus.  On the very next search for devices, the "forgotten" Roku showed up at the bottom of the screen, labeled "New Device Found".  All I had to do then was click on it to get it back into the device list.
