#geek - #How does Roku identify my movie?

How does Roku identify my movie?

I'm watching a movie with Raspberry Pi Ubuntu Kodi to a Roku TV via HDMI. A few minutes into it Roku presents a pop-up that says "Watch this movie through other sources from the beginning" or something like that with the movie and details. How does Roku know what Movie I'm watching? Does HDMI transmit data or is it watching what I'm watching and processing it Shazam style?
