The New User Interface on Roku

Just a FYI, I just update to the new Plex server 1.5.5.3634 and had to update my Roku channel. I can say without a doubt I do NOT like the new interface. It's not as convienent as the previous version. It's like a change was made for change sake not to make it better. Shame on whoever approved this change. I am a daily user of Plex.

    There hasn't been any recent interface change on the Roku channel. The current basic UI was released more than two years ago (https://www.plex.tv/blog/brand-new-plex-app-platform-people/). If you'd like to discuss the Roku app, you're always welcome to do so in our friendly community forum: https://forums.plex.tv/categories/roku-streaming-players

    Well, actually on my Roku boxes there is a difference in the version. The version I had, and want back is 3.3 build 9. Now because I was having trouble getting Plex to work yesterday (the first time in almost a year) I updated the Plex Server on my PC, and uninstalled and reinstalled the Plex app on 2 of my 3 Roku boxes. I now have the 4.4.1 build on those two boxes. It does not have the same user functionality as the 3.3.9 build. So my question is how do I roll back to the version I want?

    I have to assume you were running Classic:
    https://www.rokuguide.com/private-channels/plex-classic
    1) sign in - my.roku.com
    2) follow link above
    3) add channel
    4) update Roku in System Settings

    When you added the New Channel app the Classic Channel app should still be there - unless you uninstalled it for some reason. The procedure above should return Classic to your channel line up (it'll be the last one now, so move it). Classic and New can run side by side. No need to remove one to install the other.
