Roku App Authentication

I an interested in creating a Roku app that requires a user to login into it. I like the idea when the app is launched it shows a url to access on your computer with a code to enter. Is there any type of template that can do this or is this something I will have to do custom?

Thanks.

You'll probably find this SDK doc helpful as well: http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/ ... nd+Linking

And this entry in the Roku Developer Blog: http://blog.roku.com/developer/2011/07/14/linking-a-channel-to-an-online-account/

As well as lots of code on Github that uses this method, for example: https://github.com/chrishoffman/roku-picasa/blob/master/source/regScreen.brs
