Unable to Connect to Roku Service When Linking Device
I've been trying for the past hour or so to get my Roku set up. Every time I go to link my device with my account on my web browser, I encounter the same issue. I receive a code, enter it, name my device, then select the streaming services I have. As soon as I move onto the next page to select my interests for other apps, I get a popup on my TV that reads "Unable to connect to Roku Service. Please try connecting again in a minute. For more help visit: go.roku.com/softwareupdate Error 001" and my options are to "Try connecting again" or "Check network settings." Neither of these options work, as they just loop me back to a new code and the entire process repeats. As for the error code and the suggested support link, I've done research on both and none of the suggestions I've seen from Roku or Roku Community are of any help. I've done a bunch of hard resets and factory resets, connected and disconnected from my WiFi network, and even tried linking the device in a different browser and on my phone. No matter what, the same issue always occurs when I reach the interests page.
