    App is frequently disconnecting from my roku 3 when running in the background of my phone (galaxy s3). I end up having to exit then restart the app in order for it to recognize the roku 3 again. Likewise, when I have a channel/website on the app open, while running it in the background, the app will reset itself upon unlocking my phone and I'll have to search again for the content.
