in Roku

The BT file download completed and finished seeding into my standard download folder. Roku doesn't see the new episode.
Here's my settings on the media server...
How do I force a refresh on roku?
Thanks!

    If you are not naming them correctly and placing them in a correct structure then that is the problem.

    Note: The year after the show name is only normally needed or desired if there is more that one show with exactly the same name. Check http://thetvdb.com/ if you are not sure and match exactly the name used there. There are some exceptions to this where the year is needed even if there is no other show of that name or if the show does not have the year in TheTVDB.
    There are naming methods other than the above that work but this does work 99.9% of the time.
    If you are going to use Plex it is best to use the proper naming conventions so Plex makes the best match possible. Trying to force Plex to use other naming methods is just asking for frustration.
