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.
I frequently see a pop-up that last a few seconds stating that some apps have updates. How do I update whatever needs updating. I've looked in the settings and tried the update that I found there but this is for the Roku system, not the apps. In the pop-up I see a half arrow circle and an X. The pop-up disappears very quickly.
Is there an auto setting that will automatically update anything that needs updating?
What you are describing is exactly what I see on my LG Smart TV to notify me that it has updates for its channels (not the ROKU).
In my case, I navigate to the LG "Home Screen" (using the LG TV remote), select" My Apps", and then "Updates". It will then display those LG apps which have updates available, and then I can select "Update" for each of those LG apps.
I've looked in the settings and tried the update that I found there but this is for the Roku system, not the apps.
.. and by the way, forcing the Roku to do a manual update via menu path Settings > System > System update > Check now this will also check for channel app updates.
I have found, however, when I've forced a major Roku system update (such as the recent update to Roku 10), that I have to do an additional manual update to get all the channels updated as well. Doing this right after a major system update can prevent a LOT of channel problems.
