Screen savers

I just purchased the Halloween screen saver because, well, we love Halloween. But it's not showing up in my channels. Is it something that's just I the background and will run after a certain amount of idle time?

Yes, that's what screen savers do.  You can set the amount of idle time at which the screen saver kicks in via Settings/Theme/Screensaver wait time.  Also note that some channels may not observe your chosen screen saver and will just use the default Roku one.

If you want to change the background on normal Roku pages (home page, etc.) you need to change the wallpaper.

Edit: I think I misunderstood.  By "not showing up in my channels" I think you're saying you don't see a tile for it in your channel grid on your Roku's home page.  If you installed it to your account via the Channel Store at roku.com it should install to your Roku the next time your unit checks for updates.  You can force an immediate update check via Settings/System/System uodate/Check now.   If it's still not there, check in Settings/Theme/Screensavers.
