Browsing in and out of suggested movie content moves suggested 'seed' on prematurely.

1.76

3.0.5478.2560

100% reproducible.

 

When i enter a suggested title based on movie A from the roku home screen, to review the description/cast then back to see other titles in the suggested list...i find that the suggestions are now based on Movie B.

expected behaviour would be the seed for the suggest content would not change until asked to cycle by oking on the UI element that shows the current seed value.

I think anytime you return the home screen of the app it refreshes to build in any new content which causes the suggested to get refreshed. Instead of backing out of the first suggestion you enter, a workaround is to press left or right to scroll through, I believe its the 25 items suggested.

 

Some sort of indicators on the display letting a user know you can go left or right might be nice in these areas though.

It makes sense....

 

Not a major issue..but a jarring ui experience..if reasonably avoidable by a 'mainpagerefreshrequired' flag..

 

Odd thing is..it is possible on random occassion..only ever of 1st entry of a suggested title and not often ..for the seed not to move on...odd that it can operate without the hitch infrequently but sometimes.. tested on 1.79.
