Not sure if there's a way, but it would be great to tie provider authentications (Cable, Netflix, etc) to a Roku account so that we wouldn't have to authenticate on each device. My family isn't technically savvy so having to reautheticate on multiple Roku devices becomes an occasional headache. It would be nice to do it once and it work on all devices that is tied to my Roku account until it's time to reauthenticate again.

Here's my request..

I would like to be able to power off/power down/put to sleep the Roku so it will turn my TV off.
When the Roku goes to sleep, it will turn the TV on when I wake it up. But, I cannot do the reverse and turn off the TV from the Roku.
Like my Apple TV, please allow me to put the Roku to sleep and thus turn my TV off.
Roku XS, XD, 2 x Premiere+
Also, Apple TV 3 and 4
Chromecast
Amazon Fire Stick

When I add a new channel, and I want that channel somewhere near the top of my list, and not at the bottom of the list, where it is automatically placed, I'd like to be able to press and hold down the channel move arrow, and have the channel move, continuously, until it reaches the place near the top of the list, where I want it.

What happens now, is, to move the channel from the bottom of the list to the top of the list, I have repeatedly press the arrow button, moving the channel, one space at a time. That's time consuming, and sort of a pain.

Thanks

Probably been said a bunch, but rokus need a sleep timer that shuts down streaming and consuming data at a certain time. That is the only thing keeping mine from being great. That an the Insignia Roku TV I bought less than a year ago does not have Directv Now.

how about volume control directly from the remote?
Adjusting the volume is a constant when watching various clips on youtube, etc.
I think this would be more utilized and valued than the remote headphone input.

Please add these features to RMP.

1. List View: The fact that I have to scroll to each file to see the full title is maddening.

2. Fast forward and reverse preview.

3, H,265 Support.

Addendum;

4. Metadata: Allow RMP to access internet and download metadata for video files.

5. Thumbnail Images. Allow RMP to generate thumbnail images for video files.

Thanks for listening.

Greetings!  This seems like a simple feature but I don't believe it is available, user custom backgrounds/ custom themes.  Even if it would have to be done on the Roku site, this would be an excellent addition.  I dislike the fact that you have such limited free options.
