I'm on the same OS 9 update as
and have a Harmony Hub and have not lost remote control of my Roku due to any updates. In fact, my internet was down for more than a day due to the widespread Spectrum Cable outage caused by the fire in Newberry Park, California and actually discovered the Logitech Hub can be somewhat independent when losing the outside internet connection on local intranet only. Where are competition on this?
Get this, I could control the lights I had programmed with the Logitech Hub with physical remote while Phillips Hue hub was complaining of no connection and refused to control the lights on demand. Oddly, my motion lighting with hue motion sensor and Ring Floodlight cameras continued to work though (not so surprised the floodlight motion continued but automated lighting with WiFi took a bad hit with the outage). Anyway, after the internet outage, I programmed some more lights on the Logitech Hub so I could control them if the internet went down again.
Amazon Echo? Totally useless without cloud connection; clock in display continued to keep time but any wake word was answered with, "I'm having trouble..., I'll continue trying to make a connection". Way to make a smart home dumb in an instant hue, echo, wemo and Ring Inc cameras; no outside internet server and you're out for the duration too!
Logitech Hub was a leg up on this one; my satellite DVR was accessible too but power up and DVR list opening were slow for some reason, otherwise, my Logitech remote was still usable (moreso than expected). Let the others take note of that. I'm in touch with an independent developer for local server options for Hue and WeMo though; need reliable backup for internet outages to control lights. Anyway, that was unexpected to find these manufacturers hadn't put any forethought into operating locally when internet goes down. Maybe Apple HomeKit is reliable too? I've heard there's an independent Apple HomeHub solution that may be of use if the previous one isn't. But unsure if there actually is a solution with home server. I'm patiently waiting on developer response.
I couldn't imagine doing without the internet for a week which was the rumored ETA for Spectrum cable restoration. Also was thankful I had restored DirecTV satellite service; rainfade is hardly an issue here but some folks were without internet, TV and phone because of this cable outage. I missed by streaming services too but weekends I'm usually watching sports on DirecTV anyway. Only stinging reality was the the loss of smart lighting and motion cameras.
As far as Roku and Logitech Hub, I have occasionally lost real time control of Roku, suffering slowness of remote commands to it. I have had to remove the Roku device and activity and add them again to restore speedy response. Don't know why but easy fix; it's understandable when replacing a Roku device in a setup and the other issues were rare but agreeably inconvenient. Another issue I've seen is multiple navigation inputs causing a temporary remote loss and having to wait a few seconds for remote response to restore. I'm trying something different for that today; I've removed the IR blaster control from Roku (hub only now) and nulled the audible click response in Roku settings. Maybe that helps? Dunno but trying that for now to see there's any remedy there. But I could use either Roku or Logitech remote for Roku but activity start with Logitech Hub is more reliablev than Roku remote with control devices enabled on my setup. Amazon Echo voice control through Harmony skill for activities is effective also.
