You can't add a computer; you can only add a Roku device to your account.  What are you trying to do?

Where on the TV do you find the link code display

When you initially set up your Roku (or after a factory reset), it will give you a link code and then wait for you to enter it on the website.

The only time any Roku device displays a link code is when you first set it up or you perform a factory reset and even then it may use email activation without ever displaying a link code.

What are you trying to do?

Re: Please enter the link code displayed on your TV

Looking back on the original post, I think the OP is confused about using The Roku Channel on a computer compared to an actual Roku device. There is no need to "link" a computer to your account to use TRC on a computer or the app that can be installed on Samsung TVs. If you access TRC through the Roku web site while you're logged in, there's nothing else to do. I've never used TRC on a Samsung TV, so I don't know if there's a way to access your Roku account or if it's just a generic access site.
