Can't access my channel after changing my email address login

Yesterday I changed the login information for my developer account.  As soon as I went through the update I checked on my channel via the Manage My Channels link.  My channel has now disappeared and I can't access it.  Any advice on who to contact or how to fix this?

Re: "No valid items were found in the feed" - Using Vimeo Pro

I just opened up a new channel account and put in everything like before and it worked.  It doesn't make sense but it seems to be working now.  Strange.

Re: Error Code 30-00d1dab1

Is this error code being displayed by your channel? If so, where are you getting it from? It's not a Roku code; maybe it's coming from one of your servers? --Mark Thanks for the reply. I haven't seen the code myself. A viewer continues to tell me that he can't watch the channel, even though I have ...

Error Code 30-00d1dab1

I have a viewer with a Roku SE who tells me that he can no longer watch my channel, as he continues to encounter this error code. When I do a Google search for the code, nothing comes back. Has anyone else gotten this error code? What does it mean? Thanks in advance.

I just made it half way through the Streaming Player Developer Guide, but now I have not idea what Zip files I should be messing with. Should I focus on another section...
