@westner Exactly! Unfortunately, that wait will likely be for quite some time. Meanwhile, our TVs remain crippled and I expect will only become moreso, if anything, over that time.
The fact that no Roku employees have responded in an attempt to deny or explain anything I've implied in my previous posts only confirms my suspicions - their "silence is deafening".
I still seriously feel/urge that owners of these now-crippled devices should demand a full refund from Roku directly or work towards filing a class-action against Roku in order to recover a refund, en masse. Otherwise, Roku will continue to get away with this completely unacceptable behavior - stuff their pocket$ with our money, fold the doors when it all comes tumbling down, and go home fat & happy... as if nothing ever happened, as if they never did anything wrong.
Additionally, file complaints with the FTC, state and DOJ's Consumer Protection divisions/agencies. As consumers, we have rights in regards to these issues - if Roku won't do anything about them, then someone else will.
