Roku 1 Setup & Link for activation

I received a Roku 1 as a gift which was purchased at Best Buy.  In setting it up on my tv I get the Internet connection & it looks like it is connected (all the lines have green check marks), then it goes to updates & restarts but never gives me a code to us as link for me to go online to activate.  What am I missing?  Pat G.

Re: Roku 1 Setup & Link for activation

So it comes up with the Home screen (a bunch of Channel icons)?  If so, press Home on the remote and go to Settings->System->About.  Is there an email address displayed?
