Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
Looks to me that Motortrend on Roku is a separate subscription, and doesn't use a cable account for access. When I look in the channel store, I see this:
Please note, your subscription automatically renews unless the subscription is cancelled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Payment will be charged to Roku account. Any cancellation elected during an active subscription period will not be effective until after the conclusion of the then-current subscription period. You can manage your subscription after purchase by accessing your Roku account.
So it's only through your Roku account, not any existing access via a cable provider.

I've recently added MotorTrend channel and have often been streaming continuously for several hours at a time. Within the last couple of weeks Roku will restart itself if I pause a program long enough to start Roku's screensaver. It's the new one the has several dark blue Roku emblems scrolling across the screen.
So does MotorTrend have issues with Roku's screensaver or is this a coincidence and the player itself is starting to have issues. I can't recall specific details of other times it has restarted on its own but there may have been a few recently.
