The Roku doesn't have a capability to stream from PC directly to Roku. But, with the help of a channel, it is possible. You will be needing PLEX application to enable it. You can visit www.plexapp.com to know more about the channel.

Then you will be able to enter the link code from your device at the following link:Roku Link Device , this will link your Roku device to the Roku account you've created.
After you've completed the previous steps, you may now enter the linking code given when trying to open the Facebook Roku Channel on your Roku device. Here's the link: Facebook logo

Hi Larry
Have the same issue and the only fix was I gave it to my brother since I couldnt figure out what or why it had so many short falls.
If you can return it still you might want to consider something more user friendly.
Good luck

Can you help to activate my Roku?


have you connected it to Wi-Fi or ethernet ?
Have you connected it to HDMI input of TV ?
You need to use the browser in the unit and look up Netflix, Amazon, YouTube for movies to play.
does it have a usb port where a wireless keyboard receiver could be plugged in making it much easier than using the remote.
I am not familiar with the unit but it most likely is using android like a tablet so find google play store - you need a google email address go to www.gmail.com and set up an email. use it on play store search playstore for movies on line apps

Downloading movies isn't the problem. It is saying that netflix and roku isn't connected. But how could it get unconnected? I haven't asked for any changes in my account. The screen insist that I ente


There could be a time-out issue with it. But try uninstalling it' then reinstalling it. My ps3 did that to me, where it said Netflix was not compatible. But I just had to reset the cache, and the permissions to get it going again. Hoe is that Roku box for you? I watch a lot of Netflix, when I'm not at work or busy doing automotive care. I was thinking about getting off those to do my netflix on instead of the ps3. All of my computers at the house are Mac though. Not sure if that would really matter. I could just do Apple TV instead for better and easier connectivity.
