Official Roku TV app not working with AdGuard Pro's privacy feature enabled 4 DNS & VPN?

In my old iPhone 6+ (iOS v12.4.7), Roku's iOS app gets stuck in starting up. I know it requires wireless network to work, but does it really need Internet if is just for controlling a TCL HDTV's Roku?

Thank you for reading and hopefully answering. Smiley Happy

Yes, it does. Its not controlling the roku by IR or RF, its controlling it by IP, er internet.

So, the virtual RC is useless without Internet (e.g., outage) for OTA TV? Wow. Smiley Sad

If you have such an old cellphone that it has IR built-in, there are roku apps that will work by IR instead of the internet.
