Remote light TOO BRIGHT

The light at the center bottom of the 55 in Roku TV is so bright it lights up my whole bedroom. It defeats the purpose of having a TV timer so I can watch TV in bed at night. I put black tape over it and then I can't use the remote to turn it off in case I go to sleep before the timer. This is a real problem for such a big purchase installed in my bedroom.

Re: Remote light TOO BRIGHT

What brand of Roku TV? I have an Insignia and Sharp version, and there's no light there. There are a number of other brands. Roku doesn't make the TVs, they only provide the operating system. Your tape solution should work, as long as you don't cover the IR receiver. But not knowing your TV brand, someone can't offer any suggestions.

I believe in settings, there's a way to turn it off entirely.

You can turn it off in Settings/Power menu.
