Re: Roku tv not finding antenna channel

What a typical non-answer. "Have you tried turning it off and then on again?"

Have you read the thread? There is a software and/or hardware problem on Roku's end. Come back when you have a real solution.

Re: Roku tv not finding antenna channel

First, doing a reset to get the channels back is not a fix. It's a workaround. The problem will just happen again. This need to be addressed.

As for my issue, it just started tonight on my RokuTV. I noticed 3 of my 4 local channels were missing, completely. Nothing brought them back, not even the rescan.

However, I found that if I went into the Manage Channels menu, Add to Favorites, and navigated to one of the missing channels, it would display the channel on the screen. I could leave it there and watch the channel just fine, after the menu dropped off. So it is not an antenna issue, the tv is obviously getting a good signal.

I will look for a software update tomorrow, but this is a new tv. Does Roku really want me to return it?

Re: Roku tv not finding antenna channel

Hi I am also having the same issue with my ONN ROKU TV. My antena is connected right and powered. But when it’s time to scan for channels it says there isn’t any. This is very frustrating because what good is a tv if I can’t even watch my local news?

Re: Roku tv not finding antenna channel

@Josiah1, does the scan go really fast as if it's not really doing anything?  I had to factory reset my TCL Roku TV to get it to actually scan.

Re: Roku tv not finding antenna channel

Omg so I went to my channel list and it said no availble channels click * for options and so I clicked it and it said favorite channels I think. And so I had to clicked manage all channels instead of apperently being in in the favorite channel list which showed no tv channels. Hopefully this helps someone. @ me if you need any better instructions.
