Does the switch have activity lights on its ports? Can you turn off
all the non-Roku wired devices for a limited time? If so, a solution is
obvious. If it's lacking activity lights, things become a lot harder.
Get some masking tape and wrap the ends of the cables and write
identifiers on the ones where you know what they are. That way, future
problems like this can be avoided.
