I have two Roku,s...

I have two Roku,s Roku 2 and a new Roku Ultra. We are located in Mexico. When I bring up the sign in page it comes up in Spanish that I do not understand. We got the Roku 2 signed in with the help of a Mexican friend and is working OK. Went he brought up the options on the Roku devices to use, Roku Ultra would not show up,therefore we cannot sign the new device.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Roku media player?

Netflix works but that is all we get

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Video Expert to know before I connect you?

Thankyou

You're welcome. I recommend that you reset your Roku Ultra to factory defaults. If you do that, the first screen that you see after it comes back up should allow you to choose a language.

To reset it to factory defaults please do the following:

  1. With the Roku on, use a bent paper clip to press and hold the reset button and hold for 30 seconds. Note: I recommend that you use a timer.
  2. The Roku may turn off, If it does not, please power it off and press and hold the reset button for another 30 seconds.
  3. While still holding the reset button down, turn on the power to the unit again and press and hold for another 30 seconds.

Please give this a try and let me know the results.

This process usually works for resetting any router to it's factory setting.

If we cannot talk maybe you have suggestion. I know how to change the language on the roku. The problem I have is that when I go to the roku SIGN IN page it comes up in Spanish. Went my Mexican friend went into this page and it showed the different Roku devices that could be activated ROKU ULTRA was not an option. Why did our computer not reconnize this device? Can you activate our channel options from your location if I give you the pass word etc

I recommend that you reset your Roku Ultra to factory defaults. If you do that, the first screen that you see after it comes back up should allow you to choose a language.

To reset it to factory defaults please do the following:

  1. With the Roku on, use a bent paper clip to press and hold the reset button and hold for 30 seconds. Note: I recommend that you use a timer.
  2. The Roku may turn off, If it does not, please power it off and press and hold the reset button for another 30 seconds.
  3. While still holding the reset button down, turn on the power to the unit again and press and hold for another 30 seconds.

Please give this a try and let me know the results. If that doesn't work, I have another method we can try.

As I mentioned I do not have a problem with the language on the ROKU. Only on the sign in page on the computer.

I am so sorry. I misread that. Please give me just a moment.

I'm sorry. I understand your frustration. If it says Safari cannot connect that tells me that you are now on the MAC computer. The instructions for getting connected to me are different, depending on which computer you are on.

If you have a MAC, please click on this link:
