Roku Ultra 4660X reboots with version 12 software

Since Roku upgraded the software to the latest version sometime in the last two weeks(April, 2023), almost every time turning on the TV Monitor or sometimes even when closing apps, the Roku Ultra 4660X will pause on a black screen for a while and then reboot.

It is using the Roku power supply, so power issues seem unlikely.

Roku software v12.0.0 build 4181-46.

As of Aug 23, I have submitted 41 unanswered Roku "Issue report tracker" [Hit the Home button five(5) times followed by the Back buttons five(5) times to generate that report.]

The Settings/Display is manually set (i.e.  not using auto detect)

  • tracker ID when this issue occurs (when you see this issue occur, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times, and provide us with this ID)
  • steps to reproduce the issue you are seeing

How can this defective version of Roku software be removed?

Since Roku upgraded the software to v12.0.0, almost every time turning on the TV Monitor or sometimes even when closing apps, the Roku Ultra 4660X will pause on a black screen for a while and then reboot.

It is using the Roku power supply, so power issues seem unlikely.

>> Roku is connected via Ethernet cable, so WiFi does not need to be rebooted.

>>> Roku reboots itself each time, so that is also done.

>>>> Happens on all apps, not specifically on one more than others.

>>>>>Device Info:

As stated before in the deleted reply, this roku is wired not wireless so no need to reboot WiFi.

Also, as stated before, this issue reboots the roku each time, so that is not needed either.

And finally, this happens on any app or the home page of roku itself after turning on the HDMI monitor.
