Does the "Default Video Quality" setting on the website (Settings-Video Preferences) have any effect on the video quality on the Roku?

I access crunchyroll on both my computer and my Roku box. If my "Default Video Quality" setting on the website is set to 480P, does that mean that the Roku is also playing back at 480P?

In a word, no.

Currently Roku is set to provide adaptive streaming only (meaning you can't choose and it can very likely change to any possible resolutions in the middle of playing) with no possibility to override or even limit that. I see that they just released one of the other platform apps with the ability to choose resolution, so hopefully they are working on bringing that option to all of them eventually... But they probably won't tell us anything if/until they have released it.
