If I move my Roku DVP, will I have to re-enter credentials?

by Doctor Who / July 3, 2009 11:02 AM PDT

This week I just purchased a Roku digital video player, to work with Netflix. So far, I love it! One thing that I find odd is the fact that it is always on, but oh well.

However, that makes me wonder, if I were to disconnect it from the TV I've currently got it plugged into, to take it to another PC in my house; or if we loose power to the house, or something? Will I have to re-enter all of the credentials (my home network Wi-Fi settings, Netflix account, etc)?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
