Re: Roku taking up too much data

I want to watch my shows in good quality format that's why I have a HD TV and some people paid for a UHD OR 4K and soon to be 5K and now we have to degrade our video experience to save on data usage. I cut the cord and stream TV the majority of the day since I am retired now. I had a rude awakening ...

Re: How To Easily Turn Any Roku On Or Off Without Pulling It Out Of It’s Port All The Time

I don't think either of you are drifting off topic when it comes to questions about the devices possibly ease dropping on you.  I have had those concerns ever since I invited my first laptop into my home.  I do believe that it's the choice of individuals about how much personal information is share...

Re: How To Easily Turn Any Roku On Or Off Without Pulling It Out Of It’s Port All The Time

P.S. As I researched my Roku issues on the Web, I ran into many forums with posts from Roku owners having this exact problem seeking solutions on how to control their data problems with no off features on Roku.

Re: How To Easily Turn Any Roku On Or Off Without Pulling It Out Of It’s Port All The Time

Older Roku plug in had an off feature.  Newer ones don't and as long as it is receiving power (plugged into an outlet) Roku is connected to the internet and can update etc which means you are still connected to the internet and you are using data period doesn'even in the home screen.  If you fell as...

Re: How To Easily Turn Any Roku On Or Off Without Pulling It Out Of It’s Port All The Time

There is a difference between spyware monitoring my internet online activity which there are all sorts of things being sold to at least minimize those efforts verses now actually buying and installing spyware into the outlets of your home under false pretenses that will invade your privacy, family a...

Will keep that advice in my back pocket sounds promising but I did read on Watch Dogs that they have evidence of those devices ease dropping.  Google is infamous for collecting information on people.  That's why they created malware!  I'll check it does sound intriguing.

Re: How To Easily Turn Any Roku On Or Off Without Pulling It Out Of It’s Port All The Time

Oh that's interesting so your saying if I had my home all set up to be operated by Alexis or Google assistant, it has the ability to Turn off Roku.

I am one month into streaming now and had my first jolt from my cable company that I was about to "exceed my data limit", which was 1024 GB and not bad for my basic internet plan.  So now I'm on a mission to control this from reaching deep into my pockets because that was the hole purpose ...
