Range Requests for .TS files

For the past couple of months we have seen a dramatic increase in requests from Roku players to our streams. This stems for the use of range requests for .ts files that seems to have been introduced in the 8.0 version of the OS. Is there any way to disable range requests within a Roku application?

What is a .ts range request? Is it grabbing multiple different bandwidths for each segment?

Range request are grabbing just a portion of a file (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/doc ... e_requests). This is useful for playing mp4 files, but .ts chunks are small enough to be requested in one go.
