Hi,

1 -- Just got my Roku Express set up last night. I spent the morning "adding channels" via my account on Roku.com website. However, when I go back to Roku on my TV, none of the channels I added can be found. Where did they go?
2 -- Sometimes, when trying to "add" shows to via Roku on my TV, nothing happens, just the circle loading arrow going round and round. Does this possibly happen because the show needs to be purchased and I haven't purchased it yet?

Thanks for the help.

If you add channels from the website or another Roku device and want them to show up right away, go to the Settings -> System -> System Updates. Click "Check Now", it will force Roku to update.
