Roku tv firmware has a BIG problem?

I have had my 58" roku TV going on a few years now. I decided to connect it to the Internet and do a firmware update. Boy was that a mistake! I am now waiting an hour for it to do channel updates. It is now forced me to give it my email address otherwise I cannot use the TV it is now forced to me to install the app on my phone. As anyone else made this tragic mistake? I will never buy another roku TV is there any way to roll the firmware back to Get out of this mess?

Re: Roku tv firmware has a BIG problem?

It shouldn't take an hour and there's certainly no need for any app on your phone.  If you want it to be "smart", yes you need a Roku account which requires an email account.

You can try factory resetting it by locating the reset button and pressing and holding it for no less than 30 seconds.  Disconnect it from the Internet and set it up as a "dumb" TV.
