Normal tv channels

I have installed the Roku stick + and all seemed to be working fine until I wanted to go back to my normal Freeview digital channel (BBC1, 2 ITV etc.).

Roku is on an HDMI input, so I thought I could just change INPUT SOURCE on my tv to Digital TV as would be normal but it said there was no signal so I retuned all channels.  Still same no connection message.

My thought was that I would just switch between source inputs on my TV - HDMI 4 for Roku and Digital TV for the usual channels, but I have lost all of these, only able to see Roku now.   Any solutions?   Thanks.

Connecting a Roku (or any other device) to an HDMI port has no impact on the tuner. You might check to see if your antenna connection came loose while you were installing the Stick on the set.

Re: Normal tv channels

Did you sort this as I am having the same issue! If I unplug the HDMI lead connected to roku then the freeview channels return?
