Re: Keeps kicking me out of my apps and back to the home screen

New to this forum. I have had some what a similar problem with a new Vizio Smart TV and the Homerun HD streaming app. Once I got a correct display on the TV after a LOT of other issues. Finally I thought I had it working and suddenly it goes back to the Roku home screen after a few minutes. It keeps on doing it. What I found after a lot of messing around on the Vizio is I turned the HDMI input to "Standard" mode and disabled CEC in the HDMI which effectively disables commands over the HDMI. Not sure if your TV's have these capabilities. Now everything is working - but on an older Express, the new one a just bought has issues I am hoping to see if some here can help with but that will be on another post.

Regards

Re: Keeps kicking me out of my apps and back to the home screen

Hi, and thank you for your message. I have a new 43inch Vizio smart tv. I purchased a new Roku Express Model 3960 to stream to the Vizio. I hooked it all up and all the apps on Roku worked Britbox, Netflix, Prime and all others I use EXCEPT HD Homerun. It displays in slow motion or buffering a lot, there is a lot of pixelation, and no audio. I checked the set up on my Android phone the HD app works fine and also works on two other Tvs in my home - but they have Roku model 3930 Express's on them - the HD app has worked on them for the last year with no issues and still work. I swapped the Model 3960 to another TV and put it's Model 3930 on the Vizio - the Vizio now works with the HD app. my other TV that now has the Model 3960 works with all apps EXCEPT HD app. So the problem seems to be with the new Model 3960 Express 3960 . 

 

Second issue. After a few minutes of the Vizio TV running the HD app with the Model 3930 Express  it would kick out to the Roku Hompage. Time to do this was not consistent usually a few minutes. I set the VIZIO HDMI port to which the Roku was plugged into to STANDARD setting in the Vizio setup menu and I set the CEC from enabled to DISABLED. That seems to have cured the erratic kicking out the home page. So my primary question is why doesn't HD Homerun work correctly with Model 3960 Express?

Model 3960 ver 5.2.2 build 4174-ED

Model 3930 ver 5.2.2 build 4174-AE

Hope this helps as I would like to have the HD app functional on all my Ruko units and currently I am reluctant to purchase another Express not confident it too will not have a problem. 

 

Thanks for reaching out.

Joe

Re: Keeps kicking me out of my apps and back to the home screen

I'm having the same problem, with Prime, Netflix, and Max. Hulu doesn't do it, for some reason. 

I'm about to throw this Roku tv through the f*****g window.

Roku Express model 3960X

SN x02600UU87NW

ID  S0KC328U87NW

Software 12.5.5 build 4174-ED

Running for over a year with no problems. Last software update was 1-23-2024.

Began quitting Hoopla to Roku home about one week ago. I removed Hoopla, powered off the Roku, and reinstalled Hoopla. Hoopla had just one exit to Roku home since but I'm not confident that I have fixed it. Above data sent for your troubleshooting.

Re: Keeps kicking me out of my apps and back to the home screen

For Troubleshooting  ?  Are you out of your ever loving mind ? 
That garbage they ask you to do is only to verify your model numbers so they can make more with the same problem. 

Hey Roku Mary here’s another bum unit make sure you clone it and get production ramped up

Re: Keeps kicking me out of my apps and back to the home screen

How can you say that when the thread is over one year old ? 
Further the thread has nothing to do with “Playback” it’s about taking you out of your app and returning you to the Roku Home Screen 

if you are working on Playback issues it’s no wonder you have no solution in over a year. Is it possible there is a language or comprehension problem on your end ?
