I've had a ROKU HD in my bedroom for several years. We recently bought a ROKU TV for another room. I added several new channels on through the ROKU TV and my account shows the channels are installed, but they are not showing up on my old ROKU HD. How do I get them to show up there?
I've updated the device and I have restarted with no luck.
Roku channels are created and maintained by the channel suppliers themselves.
Some Roku channels take advantage of enhanced capabilities of the newer Roku units and will not install on older, less capable units that are incapable of running them.
Some long term channels keep older versions that will work on older units in the system -- depends on the channel. Netflix, for instance, will run on my old Roku 2, but it cannot support the multiple Netflix profiles that my newer units will.
