Changing Amazon VOD account

Tue Jan 04, 2011 12:03 am

Is there anyway to change the Amazon account associated with my Roku? I want to use a different account but can't find a way to switch.

Goto this Amazon page and click on the link to "> Manage your devices and settings" (near the bottom of the page). You can unregister your Roku here. Then sign into Amazon under the other account and register the Roku anew using the same pagelink above but this time clicking on the "register your device button".

My parents have a Roku and they want to use Amazon, but it's acting like it's already attached to an Amazon account (it only asks for a pin).
Everyone checked their Amazon accounts but we don't see it - so we can't unregister it from the Amazon website.
There has to be another way. Anybody?

just delete the channel and re-add it. The first time you try to buy something it'll ask you to link it

...or do a factory re-set from the settings menu. You'll have to re-link all your accounts though.
