I just got a Roku Express+ which doesn't come with an off switch. Would it harm the unit if left plug in to an electrical outlet all the time? I have noticed it does get warm when used an extended period of time. The electrical outlet is in a hard location to access to unplug the electric cord from the wall; would it be harmful if it's just unconnected from the back of the unit?
mine feels hot also. I sometimes unplug it from the back cause I have satellite internet and the Roku want to talk when I am done. It does not hurt to be in or out. with mine in, seems it keeps connecting to my expensive internet. with it off, it cools down.
