ROKU device connecting to my home computer

My roku device keeps establishing a connection with my home computer, I don't why and how that is happening but it is connecting through port 8060 and occasionally sends  packets through to my PC, I have already disabled mobile app device pairing in roku system settings and yet I still face the same issue. this is super invasive and unacceptable, I'll be waiting for a reply from tech support.

First, this isn't tech support.  It's a "community" where users help other users.

What you're seeing is probably your computer querying your Roku via SSDP.  It's nothing to worry about.

Re: ROKU device connecting to my home computer

thank you for leaving a reply.

I have actually disabled SSDP on my PC, so the device trying to connect is beyond me. it seems to only try and establish a connection whenever I open up my browser. and I believe it does not succeed at doing so.

for the most part the 2 devices exchange acknowledgement packets with length: 0. 

still irritating though lol
