New stream bar, can’t find cable or game

I am adding Streambar to existing Tcl Roku tv. I no longer have boxes on the Home Screen for my Wii game or my cable box, and the stream bar has taken over the hdmi space I used for my DVD player.

Re: New stream bar, can’t find cable or game

When I unplugged the soundbar from the hdmi3 input, I got access to the tv again. This suggests that the soundbar only helps the streaming channels and that I have to plug and unplug every day. Please tell me there’s a better answer.

Press Home on your TCL Roku TV remote to get access to your other devices.

As long as you keep using the streambar remote you will always be bought to the streambar home screen, meaning no input tiles. Put away the streambar remote only use the roku tv remote. If its set up right, pressing home key on each remote would bounce you back and forth between the roku tv home screen and the streambar home screen. To keep roku's straight make sure they both are set to different themes, turn off the seasonal setting so roku can't switch both to the same theme. The purple theme the streambar comes set to no roku tv has such a theme. And roku tv has their own theme no other roku brand has.
