Re: Certain OTA Channels Disappearing

@Kas13 Glad to see I'm not the only one in my viewing area with this issue! Have you ever noticed in the past if the TV guide info for 21.2 (NBC) and 21.3 (MyTV) was the same as 21.1 (ABC)?

Re: Certain OTA Channels Disappearing

I’m in 46835 too, and I’m having the same issue. I’m able to get those channels just fine on my non-Roku tv

Re: Certain OTA Channels Disappearing

@eastom98 Have you ever noticed in the past if the TV guide info for 21.2 (NBC) and 21.3 (MyTV) was the same as 21.1 (ABC)? It would happen to me from time to time and I think this might have something do with the channels now being removed. My theory is that the Roku TV is seeing them as duplicates and removing them from the list even though they are still programmed.
