I have a Roku player. Unfortunately, it does not have a on/ off switch. What can I buy that has a simple power switch that is controllable by my remote control (Harmony 900)?


Thanks!

The Roku doesn't have an ON/OFF function so no remote will do what you want.


After a certain amount of time it just goes into standby. I don't remember how long it takes (15 or 20 minutes maybe) but the LED on the front eventually goes out....which I'm sure you realize.

You could get an ir controlled power strip or outlet to plug your roku into. I don't think you would ever get your money back in energy savings though.

yup, he could... that'd work...


the roku box uses 4 watts in standby and 6 in use... i guess i never worried about it too much...

My issue is that when on it apparently is triggering phone problems. Has any one found a way to stop automatic update checks?
