Can someone explain why Roku needs to scan other devices on my network? Here is the log from SEP. (I masked out the IP ... I looked up the number in my router user list and confirmed it is the Roku device.)

Re: Roku Device Port Scanning Home Network

This just happened to me as well from a Roku-integrated TV. It's happened twice in the past hour- has never happened before this. Anybody know what the **bleep** this is? Is this something that Roku is doing or is there a vulnerability in Roku software?
