PIN to add channels not updating

I have recently changed my PIN (via my Roku acct on a web browswer) to keep my kids from adding channels and to block certain content on the Roku channel. They know the old PIN.

However, they can still add channels because for some reason the old PIN is still active for adding channels, but the new PIN is active for everything else.

For example if I go to my TCL RokuTV, and select settings>parental controls, the new PIN is active. However, if I just try to add a channel (like Tubi or something), then the new PIN is not active, and the old PIN works.

What's up here, is this a known bug? I need to be able to reliably set parental controls for adding channels & blocking content. Thanks.

Hi @AugieSeaman,

Just to verify, do you recognize the Roku account email directly from the device by going to Settings > System > About
