DIRECTV/Roku not working on Samsung TV.

2 different TVs will not work with directv box or Roku device. Roku will load home page but can’t get remote to work. Directv box is stuck on 1 channel, I can adjust volume but can’t change channel or see the guide. No other features on the remote will work. This happened on a TV in my home office but now is happening on the TV in my master. I have 5 other TVs in other rooms all working for now. Internet is working fine. WTH?!?!

Re: DIRECTV/Roku not working on Samsung TV.

When I had Comcast, I had problems with connectivity when I had over 5 devices connected. 
Comcast had a solution that required a technician doing some rewiring of their box at my house. 
No idea who provides your internet but look into it.
