  1. Hey Dan,
    Roku TV streamer here. Having trouble activating YES app on Roku TV ever since they did the app and password update a few weeks ago. I follow all the steps outline above, but the problem is that when I put in the code on my Roku TV screen on any other device like it says (iphone or laptop) the app is just activated on that device (iphone or laptop) not the Roku TV.
    It’s like the TV isn’t receiving the message so to speak. Any tips on how to get this going again? Thanks!
