Changing published channel name

Hi,
I wanted to change the name of the channel I published (let's say from A1 to B1). As specified in the post http://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=73927 , I changed the name(A1 to B1) in the descriptions and the manifest(A1 to B1).
However, the "search channels" roku option shows the old name still(A1), and when I install, in the home menu of roku, after installing the channel, I can find the new name(B1) in the home menu. Does it take time for the search results of roku to get updated or is there anything else that I need to do? I can see the version number of the channel in the search results updated, but do not see the name updated to B1.

Thanks,
Sumeet

Re: Changing published channel name

The name by which channel shows on player's Home screen is determined by the name in the manifest.
Not quite sure if you meant "public" channel and which Search you were referring to.
I know if you were changing only the metadata (everything besides the bundle), you have to email dev.support to push it.

If however after renaming the channel was reviewed and published, i am baffled as to why name did not make it.
What does https://channelstore.roku.com/ show for your channel?

You know what, just email developer at roku.com with this.

Thanks Enterr,
It got updated after a couple of hours. Seems some sort of cron is run to update metadata in a timely manner. Thanks
