I just added some new devices to a few new tv's in my house. I connected them to my Roku account and all the channels showed up. However, it is saying that I need to log into each individual app like Hulu, Netflix, ect. Shouldn't they log in automatically from my other device already connected to the Roku account?
Each device has it's own unique MAC (Media Access Control) number. Until you login/authenticate that device, the station/app doesn't know that device is authorized to receive the signal.

I just setup a second device and experienced the same problem, I had to login to all my individual accounts. What a major passion in the ass! Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if you could use a regular keyboard but you still have to lookup all the inaugural logins and passwords. I hope ROKU will come up with a meter solution to transfer ALL the settings in the future! Not happy!
Is there any way to do this on line, with a keyboard. Clicking one letter at a time with arrows is seriously time consuming. Couldn't you at least save my e-mail so I don't have to re-enter it every time?
