I mean, he's not wrong here about the data collection, it's fairly rampant... check out my DNS blacklists (for the IoT "untrusted" VLAN):


The only device(s) we have which are anywhere even close as chatty would be the Google Home smart speakers, but we have four of them compared with a single Roku TV and they still generated less (combined) requests than the tv.  I highly recommend everyone implement some form of DNS blacklisting on their networks.  I've found Pi-hole to be both wonderful and fairly easy to set up, but is by no means the only way to approach this. 

I am guessing Roku devices are uploading error log data. That might be why they ask for your Serial Number, so they can look at logs to see what the issue might be when someone is reporting issues. Since Roku itself doesn't have much storage, has to have someplace to put the logs.

We should probably not be insulting people regardless of their posts. Just saying....

Re: I will NOT be joining new ROKU Forum

Sorry, just tired of the unfounded paranoia that the internet has become..

People need to do their due diligence, and make sure they're right when they get up on their soap boxes. Too much speculation and fear over nothing these days.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Strange, long rant aside, I would remind Iona-D of the EULA agreed to when you actually set up your Roku for the first time.

You do realize that Roku is recording and using the information it gathers about what you watch, right?  That's FAR more personal than any data recorded from an online forum.
