Feature request: disable wifi direct to reduce wifi interference
The wifi direct network generates a very strong wifi signal that causes interference and disrupts any other wireless network traffic using that channel. When you have many roku devices in your home, and more broadcasting devices from other nearby homes too, you have a scarcity of available network channels that can transmit clear signals on 2.4ghz and 5 ghz.
Many users have problems with this and want to disable wifi direct and just use IR.
We used to be able to disable this from the 'secret menu' however this was removed in a roku update in the fall of 2020.
