Channel disappeared from a campus system, cannot restore?

I'm hoping to get some suggestions.  Problem is, I don't quite know all the technology going on.

Comcast supplies streaming content to people here on a University campus.  The campus TV station channel disappeared over the summer, as a piece of gear malfunctioned. (Not a big deal in summertime.)  That piece is now operating.  The campus TV station gets translated into IP and sent to Comcast, and Comcast has demonstrated that it is seen and heard at its metro headend.  Apparently the channel can also be seen at the Campus IT department, returning from Comcast.  But, no one else can see the channel.  They can select channel 92, UIndy TV, but an error message pops up.  I suggested the delete channel and re-add procedure, but I'm told that the home channel only gives the campus users the ability to delete ALL channels.

Before I suggest they delete (and restore?) everything, what are the ramifications of having people do that?  Or is there a less drastic procedure?

Many thanks in advance,

Re: Channel disappeared from a campus system, cannot restore?


Thanks for the inquiry.

Can you please provide more information regarding the issue you are experiencing? Is this a Roku channel you are inquiring about? 

If this is in regards to a Roku channel, for more information about that channel's features and functionality, you'll want to contact the channel provider's support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves. 

However, if you need further assistance with development a Roku channel, it may serve you better to post in the Roku Channel Developer board for more assistance.
