Roku Pausing due to phone camera

So I thought it was a fluke but it's been continuously happening for a year now and I have no explanation as to why. If I ever use my phone to take a picture or video of something I'm watching on the tv it will automatically pause or just keep skipping from pause to Play over and over. It's no big deal but was wondering if anyone has ever heard of this. I have a pixel 6 if that means anything

Re: Roku Pausing due to phone camera

That's weird.  Are you running any Roku-related apps on the phone?

Is the flash being used?  If so, try without?  (Wild guessing that the flash might be flickering in a way that looks like an IR signal.)
