OTA Channel Guide Displays Wrong

2-2-23 My Sharp Roku Tv did an update and now my OTA channel guide is displaying channels and programming wrong. I’m in Greenville SC and for example ABC is 13.1 but it is showing as CBS and shows the CBS programming guide but watching that channel clearly it is ABC. This is happening on several channels. I turned the tv off and rescanned several times as well as unplugging it. My internet connection is fine and all other apps are working perfectly. 
thanks for the feedback.

  • does this issue occur on a specific channel? if so, what channel and what version/build is the channel (this can be found by selecting the channel on the Home screen and pressing the * button)

I’m in Greenville SC 29651

This occurs across several channels where the guide states it’s one network like CBS instead of ABC.

Issue ID 51-049-027

I did a system update 02-02-23 then this started happening. I have rescanned my OTA channel’s and even unplugged the TV several times but this persists. 
thank you.

Interestingly I changed my location Zip code in settings to the location of the city broadcasting my OTA stations instead of my actual location and it appears to have solved the problem.
