Does Roku Express create a hidden wi-fi ssip for some reason? Can it be turned off?

Jump to solution

I have noticed a Roku hidden ssip shadowing my connected wifi channel. All indications are it coming from my Roku express... why? 

Thanks in advance!

Although basic Express models come with a simple infrared remote, they are also capable of being controlled by the Roku Voice Remote models which connect via wifi direct.  I suspect you're seeing the wifi-direct channel the Voice Remote can use.
