We have 4 televisions with Roku built in. Three are TCL and one is ONN. Brand. We only use Roku and antenna. There's no cable box complications.
On one of the TCL televisions, we can hide some of the streaming channels, leaving the others, just like one can do with OTA channels. On the others, I have not figured out a way to accomplish this & am wondering if there is another way to hide some, but not all, streaming channels.
To better explain my clunky words, on the one where we can hide some streaming channels, we hid several. When one pushes the Left Arrow button, those don't show up in the list. This makes for a much shorter list and certainly faster channel selection.
How It Works On The One Television:
Settings - TV Inputs - Antenna TV - Manage Channels - Manage All Channels - Edit Channel Line Up.
This presents a list of all the antenna and all the streaming channels.
From there, we can scroll through the list and choose which individual channels to hide- OTA and Streaming.
On the other sets, we have:
Settings - TV Inputs - Antenna TV -Manage Channels - Hide Streaming and Hide Antenna. For antenna, we can pick individual channels to hide. For streaming, it's all or none. Of course, the streaming one I watch is smack in the middle of the huge list, thus it takes 30+ seconds to get to the channel with the Up Arrow or Down Arrow button.
All of the televisions have the most current updates, according to the "Last Checked" page. The "Last Update" dates are different for each television.
Did I miss a how to accomplish the task on the other sets? (Or should I thank the Roku people for forgetting to take this feature away from the one set?)
Thanks For Helping!
PS: A person could get rich quickly if she or he could develop a remote with an actual number pad on it for direct channel entry.
