is there a way to turn off syncing between Roku TVs?

When I got my first Roku TV years ago I thought it was pretty awesome. When I got my 2nd Roku TV, I thought it was even better that it automatically installed all the apps from the first one! Now….. I think I have about 7….. and I don’t want them all to be in sync, but I can’t find a setting to turn that off.

Any suggestions other than resetting the TVs and using a different email address on each one?

Unfortunately, that is the only way.  You will need to factory reset and create another Roku account (different email address) in order to seperate them.

Also does not hurt to "unlink" them from your online Roku dashboard at prior to the Factory Reset.  The unlink procedure here merely removes it from its associated account, but does not give it another account until Factory Reset is performed.
