Return "My Feed" to old model that showed both current and previous seasons of shows. Current model that only shows new episodes and any changes to actors, etc. has made keeping track of and accessing these shows over multiple seasons very cumbersome and the excuse that the old model was cluttered is a total joke.

So I assume it doesn't have it. Great.

I need to be able to put the Roku Premier to SLEEP so that my TV detects no hdmi signal and goes to sleep as well. This simple feature would allow me to use just the roku remote to turn off my TV when I am falling asleep. I used this feature in my apple tv all the time and now that I switched to roku is a pain not to have it.

Your newest, most expensive Roku Ultra still offers no option for putting it in sleep mode.  This would allow the user not to have to wait while the entire box reboots when it is turned on again.  
Apple box has a sleep mode
Amazon Fire TV has sleep mode
Almost positive Nvidia has sleep mode also

The signal being always active interferes with phones and other devices.  

Roku:  WAKE UP and update the firmware so that sleep mode is available.

I want to repeat the 24Hz thing; the Premiere+ can already do it (presumably Ultra and Premiere as well, possibly Roku 4).  I've been using my Premiere+ in what I'm calling "HDMI 1.4 mode" and get 24Hz 4K from VUDU, Amazon, YouTube, UltraFlix and some other 4K sources and 24Hz 1080p from Amazon (upconverted to 4K).  Sadly, this is at the expense of 4K Netflix and 4K@60Hz altogether.  I'd like to get 24Hz output of 24p content from any and all sources without having to trick the STB into thinking that my connection is HDMI 1.4/HDCP 2.2.

Dolby Vision patch or come out with a newer Roku that can...I just purchased a 2017 Sony and DV is in the works to come to many sets in a few months via firmware.

^ like Mikey said,please Also add 4k/24hz auto resolution feature without having to fool the box into 1.4 2.2hdcp mode.

I've been requesting DTS-HD and TrueHD passthrough support for each quarter for the past two years...but am going to have to mix it up this quarter. Why? Because Lossless passthrough seems like a pipedream while my Roku is unable to adequately handle lossy surround-sound codecs.

Right now I have a Roku Ultra that...

Chokes on EAC3 with more than 5.1 channels
Introduces horrible A/V sync issues with DTS 5.1
Outputs both AC3 and AAC5.1 streams as stereo PCM over Optical rather than pass-through.

I've been a Roku user since the very first box nearly a decade ago, and I'm frankly shocked at how far and fast this box has LOST core-functionality (media-playback) with each subsequent firmware update. Fix it.

Already exists, but only with certain Roku models. If the remote doesn't have volume buttons, there's no way to add volume control.

Also, TV must support HDMI-CEC. Some TVs do not.

I'd like a last/previous channel function so I can switch quickly back and forth between (at least) two channels or favorite channels.  Many TV remotes have a dedicated button that does this.  It could be a programmable button, such as one of the Netflix, hulu, sling or Showtime none of which I use at all!  Or A and B.  They all need to be programmable, now they are useless to me at least. I haven't thought it through completely how it all would work (since I am powerless to actually develop anything), but one would hope and expect that Roku development teams have...maybe not.
