Roku soundbar and antenna input

Just purchased Roku soundbar for my 65 inch roku tv series 4.  There were connection issues using wireless.  I purchased USB to Ethernet fob as suggested by roku support.  First issue: light at bottom of tv kept blinking twice and there were continued audio problems.  Solved by adding additional Ethernet cable from router to tv in addition to Ethernet cable added to soundbar.  New issue:  I have lost all access to my antenna.  I cannot add from settings.  There is no option anywhere for adding tv input.  Can anyone help?

The Soundbar has a built-in Roku device, so if your TV's input is set to the Soundbar's HDMI connection then you'll be viewing the Soundbar's menu.  Try pressing Home on your TV's remote and then see if your antenna input shows up.

That works!  Thanks for the help.  Kind of weird that both the remotes don't show the samething.

No it is not weird, a device will only show inputs when it has inputs to show, the soundbar has no such inputs. If you do not want to see the soundbar home screen which has no input tiles, stop using the soundar remote, even to turn on the tv, because a few seconds later you will be taken to soundbar home screen. This won't happen if you stay with tv remote.
