Alternately what you could do is change it to 'recommended lanyard' and a disclaimer that you're not liable for end users killing people with thrown remote controls across the room - or some such.
The Nintendo Wii series have a display showing what the accessories are and what possible damage can be caused by misuse prior to loading a game.
Or the developer could just remove the lanyard requirement from the channel submission.
As far as I'm aware, no. I don't think the remote can communicate to the Roku in that manner. I'll forward that request over to TPTB, though. Hopefully, it's possible in some manner.

Maybe there is no name since that way of control is not as popular - e.g. Nintento have pivoted from Wii motion-sensing to Wii U gamepad with touch screen. In the new ATV, Apple seem to be hedging their bets - added motion sensor in the remote (4 years after Roku!) but also a touch pad. As a concept, motion-sensing sounds great - but turns tricky when you try using it."EnTerr" wrote:Is that the official genre?
I think is related to the legal concept of duty of care. The presence of lanyard in the box as well as instructions to attach it might be argued to cover the due diligence on the side of RokuCo. In the absence of it, things may be considered too murky by some legal minds.
The new AppleTV remote has motion sensors but no lanyard; we'll see what's Apple's take on swinging and chop-choppy games...
