I have a NEW TV, a TCL 43" HDTV with Roku built in!
It has someone else's acct on it.
When I bought the TV, I thought it was brand new. However, trying to establish subscriptions, I've noticed other accts on some of those subscriptions.
Trying to DL new streams, it's asking for a Roku PIN which I never established one, and the Roku Acct I have online still had my old TV listed. Though I removed that one, I try to "Activate" this TV for my Roku, and it shows an acct already exists on my TV! Their is an EMAIL listed, and it's NOT MINE!
How Do I remove this acct that is not mine from my TV?? It's possible, the TV I bought, from a reputable TV discount outline in the Phx, AZ Metro area, may been previously used. The TV was perfect condition, in original box, with original manufacturing. I never suspect it was previously used, til now.
The email listed showing the acct screen also says "Garage TV" above the email, as if someone named it that. Same about screen shows my current wifi, my ip and MAC address, etc. Any chance if previous owner logs on to his Roku Acct online, he sees this information, am I in danger of him hacking or tracking me?
I just want to know mainly how to remove this old account? Any way to do so without having to "Factory Reset?" I've already established some subscriptions on it, setup my Wifi (very long, annoying password)! IF I can remove the old acct from my TV, without Factory Resetting, I would be much better off! I can't figure out how!
