[Important]

*Roku Player currently DOES NOT support DNS configuration within the device.  To use Roku Player with Unotelly, you must configure the DNS settings on your router.

To configure the DNS settings on your router, refer to our guide here: http://help.unotelly.com/support/solutions/folders/29894



      

Setting up your Roku

 

Step 1: Unlink your Roku device


Login to https://owner.roku.com/Login and unlink your Roku device from your current account.

                                          

                                                                  


Step 2: Setting up Unotelly's DNS


Setup Unotelly's DNS onto your router. Visit http://help.unotelly.com/solution/categories/18726 to choose your Router    

   

To verify Unotelly's DNS has been setup correctly on your router, open up http://www.unotelly.com/quickstart2/ and check for the message "UnoDNS Setup and Account are active" on top

                                           

                                                                                   

                                   

                 

Step 3: Set the Dynamo option for Roku


a. Login to https://quickstart3.unotelly.com/dynamo and set the Dynamo option for "www.roku.com" to United States


b. Close and reopen your browser to clear cache. 


Step 4: Create a new Roku account.


Go to owner.roku.com and register for a new account, using a new email address.

   

At the billing address, you need to select "United States" as the country and use a 5-digit ZIP code made from the postal code of your actual billing address. Add zeroes before and/or after actual digits in ZIP if your postal code has less than 5 digits.  For example, Canadian postal code A1B 2C3 can be "converted" to 00123

    

                           

                               

                                                                   

                                                 

Please Note: Some users are not able to get the US account created properly and thus causes the Roku not to activate with SmartDNS features. You MUST use a US Roku account for UnoDNS to work. If your setup failed the first time, use a US VPN to create the US Roku account and try again. You can get a free VPN trial here: http://help.unotelly.com/support/solutions/articles/60447-how-to-sign-up-for-a-3-day-unovpn-trial    

   


Step 5: Reset your Roku device

WARNING: Performing a factory reset deactivates your player and erases all of your settings.    

 

Disconnect your Roku device from your network. i.e. unplug the network cable or disconnect your Roku from the router. Factory reset the Roku using one of the following methods: 

   

Method 1:. Software factory reset: 

  1. From the Home screen, press Up to activate the Menu Bar.

  2. Select Settings

  3. Select Factory Reset

  4. Select Factory Reset again

  5. Select Yes


Method 2:. Hard Reset the Roku (much more reliable) 

Using a paper clip or a similar thin firm pin, press and hold the Reset button at the back of the Roku for at least 20 seconds or until you see the Roku Welcome Screen on your TV. 

   

   

Step 6: Link your Roku device


i. Connect the Roku back to the network setup with UnoDNS.

   

ii. Go to https://owner.roku.com/link and link your Roku device to your new Roku account    

                           

                               

                                                                   

                        

                                    


                                                            

                          

STEP 7:


Now that your device is activated, visit the App Store on your Roku to get the new Apps
