I am guessing some genius programmer at ROKU inserted some sort of acceleration that is breaking many channels.
It is now dangerous to touch any control while viewing for fear of having the exit and restart. Some times one gets lucky and the video resumes in the correct location. Some times not, depending on the channel.
I have checked for roku updates daily. There have been 2 updates since this started to happen that I installed through the Systems menu. No improvement.
I have checked for channel updates. Only Youtube had an update, but it fixed nothing.
At one point even the dancing roku on start up was being skipped over, but now is dancing as it has for the last few years.
Please roll every thing back a few versions so the roku functions correctly and figure out in house what went wrong.

Edit: after posting the above I purposely test a few channels.
Youtube worked correctly most the time, a few locked up the video with the audio following the fast forward and rewind. I looked at "stats for nerds" but saw no clue when looking at the codecs as to why some videos work correctly and some get stuck.
Pluto on demand video gets stuck while subtitles and audio move with the fast forward and rewind.
Tubi same as the above.
Paramount+ movies same as above
AMC+ same as above
Peacock is even worse. Video gets stuck when switching from ad just before the show starts. When pressing play on a "resume" it is stuck after the first few frames. Audio and subtitles continue?
