Isn't that usually a remote-related thing?

Assuming 7.1 installed, Settings > Remote > Battery level

Hi Basil:

All my Roku's were updated to 7.1 during the "test rollout". My (2) 2 XS units got the "flashlight effect" and my Roku 1 and SE got the double-blink pause double-blink effect. I saw your suggestion about battery power level but the 1/SE don't have that option in the settings menu so I can't really test that theory unless I change the batteries on my remote to see (But I see no reason to do so since my current batteries seem OK).

Can RokuDale please tell us what the double-blinking means? Any other information related to LED behavior and what is it supposed to tell us would be much appreciated.

on the ones with no screen saver -- switch it to something else then you can switch back to none and see if it helps

Happening for me too
Also my radio remote navigation buttons sometimes do more than what they are supposed to.
for instance, down = down-right about 1/7 of the time
left = left+up about 1/7 of the time

2720x at 7.1.0 4062-06
remote batts at 100%
tried with various screensavers.
tried with and without menu sounds
tried with graphene and roku theme
behavior never changed.

The blinking light blinks at about the rate of KITT's wow-wow sound in Knight Rider.
I can live with the blinking light, but the wonky remote navigation problem is starting to annoy.
The navigation buttons misbehaving is clearly a software issue, I disassembled (https://www.reddit.com/r/Roku/comments/2rl5dy/roku_3_remote_control_volume_button_not_working/) the remote to ensure that it hadn't somehow attracted some ketchup on the contacts. It is clean.

I would consider upgrading to stick, but, I refuse to reward a company buy buying their new product after their actions mess up their current product. (insert diatribe about VW's TDI diesel here).

My 2 4210 out of the blue started double blinking the other night had to unplug it to get it to stop once it rebooted the blinking stopped. Maybe it needed to reboot to complete an update who knows

Hello:

You must be lucky that a simple reboot fixed your problem. I've had this problem for quite awhile now on my Roku 1 and it has been rebooted a few times and this has not fixed the issue. But, certainly another bug introduced in a software "update".

Here's the thing... It's not doing it for everyone. It doesn't do it on my Roku 3. Or on my Roku 2. So, whatever is causing the problem isn't causing it for everyone. It's difficult to fix an issue that they can't see.

You can take the initiative yourself and fix the problem. A small piece of black electrical tape over the light and voila, no blinking anymore.
