Re: Activate

The first suggestion would be to do a hard reset and start over. And I'm assuming you're connected to the Internet with the Roku. Initial setup requires an Internet connection. It can be used without a connection once set up, but you have to have it connected to accomplish that. 

Roku Stick (3600), Ultra (4640), Ultra (4670), Ultra (4800), Premiere (3920), Insignia 720p Roku TV, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Nvidia Shield, Windows 10 Pro x64 running Serviio and Plex on a wired Gigabit network.
