How To Setup Roku.com/link (Using Roku activation code)?
Connect Your Roku Video Streaming Device (Good for Roku Premiere/Stick/Express)
This description of how to set up a Roku Video Streamer, will work for every current/recent model, and every future one they are likely to introduce in the near future.
(Some older or obsolete models did not use HDMI as the primary style of video connection to convey the video signal to the TV, but the description which follows should be exactly what is needed for 98% of recent model installations. For the older ones; it is simply a matter of seeing which style of video connection is on both your TV and your Roku Streamer.)
For Roku setup the streaming player needs 3 things – 2 inputs and 1 output:
- Source of Internet (Network) – either wired or wireless
- Source of Electrical Power
- Output of Video
1) Internet – Wired connection is to be preferred for Roku activation; it is usually faster and is not subject to picking up interference from your neighbor’s wireless system. Some Roku devices have a Wired Internet input; some do not.
Roku Stick and Roku Express generally use wireless, so skip the next part about Ethernet cable.
If you have these, and you want to use the wired connection, plug the cable into the socket.
If you do not, you will use wireless connection (“Wi-Fi”). Several steps from now, the device will show you a list of the wireless networks that it is able to receive a signal from, and you will choose the network you desire to use from the list, and enter the password for the network (if the network has a password; it should, otherwise anyone nearby can use your internet without permission).
2) Electrical Power – there are two styles of Power for Roku streaming devices. If you have a Roku TV to activate Roku plug in the main power to the TV and the Roku streaming system inside the TV will automatically receive power also, and you can skip to step 3. For streaming devices:
a) Wall Transformer that does not use USB – if your transformer has a non-detachable cord and looks somewhat like the following:
b) USB – this is for the Stick and Express – the transformer and cord are in two pieces. You can use either the transformer, or plug the cord into a USB socket on the TV, if there is one.
So, plug the device end into your Stick or Express, and plug the other end into the wall power adapter for your Express, or for your Stick, use either the wall power adapter or any available USB port on the TV. If you plug into the USB port on the TV and there is a red light on your device, that means that the USB port on the TV is not delivering enough electrical current to the device for it to operate properly, and therefore you must use the wall power adapter instead.
3) Video output
HDMI cables carry both High-Definition video, and multi-channel audio simultaneously.
With this in mind. . .
a) Roku TV – all connections are internal and done already.
b) Roku Streaming Stick – the male is built right into the stick, plug it into any available HDMI port on the television.
c) Roku Express – connect HDMI cable male connectors on both ends, one to the HDMI on the Roku, the other to any available HDMI port on the TV.
4) Video Selection – use the TV’s remote control and/or the buttons on the TV, to ensure that the port you have plugged the Roku device into (or, the Roku part of a Roku TV), is the port that the TV will use to put the video onto the screen.
5) Insert the batteries into your remote.(There is a symbol inside the battery compartment in the remote that indicates the correct polarity).
6) The Roku logo will appear on your screen. If you do not get it then please check…
a) Is your player plugged into an electricity socket correctly?
b) Double check that your TV is programmed for the same input of the HDMI cable and ensure that the cable is connected firmly on both ends of the player and TV.
7) Pair your remote
a) To pair your remote open the battery door
b) Find the button at the end and press for 3 seconds while aiming at the player, for Express and TV. For the Stick, because the stick will most often be behind the TV, such that the beam of invisible infra-red light which is used by the regular remote to communicate commands to the device, would not reach the Stick – so the Stick uses a radio signal that does not require the remote to be aimed at the Stick.
8) After selecting your language, the player will show the names of all wireless networks that it is able to communicate with.
Choose your wireless network and enter the password.
a) Success will be indicated by a green symbol;
b) Failure with a red X. In most cases the password was entered incorrectly. (Note: The Password is case sensitive)
9) Player will attempt to automatically download software updates (this will take several minutes and then it will be installed automatically)
After that, the player will restart.
Then, the player will show on the TV screen, the Roku activation code which will be used to link your player to your Roku.com/link account.
