Built-in Media Player

Hi, I purchased a TCL Roku TV and it has the Media Player built-in.  No channel needed.  Whenever I pop in a USB drive, it prompts to launch the Media Player.  How do I manually load the Media Player ?  I don't see a Media Player channel on the home screen.  And I don't want to have to keep popping the USB drive in and out to load it.  Thanks.

Re: Built-in Media Player

You should be able to add the Roku Media Player from the channel store, which would add it to your channel grid on the home page.

Re: Built-in Media Player

I tried doing that but noticed that the media player from the channel store showed the images at a lower quality than the built-in media player.  Maybe its not optimized for the device ?  At any rate, I had to reset the roku tv to factory settings to get the built-in media player back.
