I know this problem could be set on the lower priority task list
Using lubuntu 16.04 64bits server emby 220.127.116.11, and latest roku version from december 2018 (3.0.134 i guess). This problem is easily reproductible.
When i am going into the film section and play a movie and then press on the roku remote star * button, there is a menu that appears quickly on screen half a second than get back while the video is still playing. If you are pressing several times the * button on the roku remote quickly, at some point the menu will eventually getting to stick on screen on top of the video while the movie is still playing!
This * button behavior is a little bit on the confusion side for the old timer of roku apps which used to see in mostly all apps a pop up menu getting on screen when pressing the * button while at the same time the playing movie is automatically paused until you exit the star button menu in some way (which makes the movie restarts by itself normally with the applied options changed in the star menu. I know it because of using a foreign language, i am using the star button most of the time in all these differents apps in an attempt to enable close caption which is mostly available in these popup menus from all these apps.
So adding a close caption choice in the popup menu and making sure that the video is pausing while the button is pressed and the pop menu appears on screen would remove the confusion seen in the current design...
