I won’t use either, and, as a matter of fact, I’m getting ready to ditch my Roku’s because they are starting to move towards voice searching so the remotes have a mic in them. I know you can disable the mic or buy a remote without the mic, but I still don’t trust any vendor that does this.

My next pi project will be a pi 4 Kodi roku replacement.
