As Roku OS is Linux based I guess it uses UNIX TimeStamp in many ways. I could not find out if the newer devices are 64bit already and the kernal was build with new time_t in mind. Somewhere should be an information what kernel is used.

Would you ask the official support about this issue?

I strongly suggest NOT to change the time to January 19th 2038... saw how an AndroidTV equipped device got bricked.😇
