How to scan for channels on Roku TV without remote

I have a new antenna and no remote control, only picking up channels old antenna tuned in I need to scan for channels without remote I have an RCA ROKU Smart TV it has small control panel on the back but I can’t seem to get it to do anything but work the volume and power?

I have an LG remote that will change channel and input once I get to Home it won’t move to settings or anywhere? Wish I knew how to program it to TV my problems would be solved

Re: Scan Roku TV for antenna channels without remote

If you have access to the home screen, and if there is Live tv tile there already, just highlight it, then press and hold it with LG remote, a menu to search for channels will appear.

If you install the official Roku Remote App from the Play/Apple stores to a mobile device (phone/tablet) you should be able to navigate the Roku Home Screen with ease to access Settings.

More info from Roku Support re: Remote App are located here....

In order to rescan for channels, navigate to Settings...TV Inputs...LiveTV...Scan for Antenna Channels.

Can use the Roku Remote App as a replacement until you figure out how to program your LG remote.
