I fired up my Nexus 7 tablet this morning to let it do some updating as I haven't used it for a week or two. When my daughter was here over the weekend and she signed in to my router with the new name and password she said something about seeing "Direct Roku" in the list of local networks. I didn't think twice about it thinking maybe a neighbor had gotten a new Roku and named his network that way. Well when I fired up the Nexus 7 this morning I checked the local networks and saw "DIRECT-Roku-387" in the list and the signal was as strong as MY network. It also shows WPA2 PSK security. The Roku 3 is in the living room and hadn't been used since early Sunday. The light on the front panel was NOT on. My router also gets shutdown every night when I go to bed. Curious, I unplugged power from my Roku 3. The signal went away immediately confirming that it's MY Roku 3 that is broadcasting. This is weird because the Roku 2 XD in the bedroom doesn't show up at all. Not sure if I should worry about this. I tried logging in to the Roku 3 using my normal network login and it didn't work. Don't have a clue what the login to the Roku 3 might be. I guess that's a good thing as others should have a hard time breaking in to it too. I just don't like having it shown out there because it just becomes a tempting target for a hacker.
Am I just being paranoid? It's strange how only the Roku 3 shows up but the Roku 2 doesn't and they're both on the very same network.
