Home Video Settings - Multiple Devices

I am a Gen5 subscriber.  I use the desktop version of HughesNet Usage Meter (the "program"), and have video settings set as shown in the screen shot below.


My question . . .


Does that setting restrict video streaming on _all_ devices using the satellite internet connection in my house, or just  streaming on the PC on which the program is installed?  Is it a modem-wide restriction or just a device-wide restriction?  In particular, does that setting restrict TV streaming using a Roku device or must I make a separate restriction on Roku (which, by the way, I have done)?

It's a system wide setting, however, some streaming services may not work with it, and will still have to be manually set to stream at a lower definition.
