I confirmed that both are fully charged and emit a strong IR beam (verified easily with a digital camera). The Logitech controls all my other devices just as well as it always has. Nothing with the TV or surroundings have changed.
I have done a reset and verified that my firmware is up to date, etc.
I can control my Roku perfectly with the "Remoku" app (http://apps4tv.com/remoku) via my computer, so I know it's not frozen or bricked. Streaming video, internet radio - all works great, as long as I navigate with Remoku. (by the way, that app makes filling out the search boxes a breeze!)
Is it a bad IR sensor in the Roku?
Anyone put their Roku under the knife? I'm pretty handy with fixing things but would be looking at the Roku guts for the first time.
All thoughts welcomed!

- Place a paper towel tub between Roku’s IR receiver and the remote & try it.
- Turn off TV (LCD) backlight from TV video menu & try it.
- Move Roku around.
- Turn Off lights.
Also, make sure Roku is not in debugging mode.
