antenna icon missing

I am trying to add an hdtv antenna but there is no antenna icon
I checked the help files and it said - . "If  AntennaTV is missing, you can add it by going to Settings >TV inputs > Antenna TV > Set up input."
well there is no TV inputs option in the settings, or any of the sub menus that I could find
this is true with both of the Roku sticks #3800x that I purchased 
please advise

Re: antenna icon missing

You can only use the Antenna input on a Roku TV, not a Roku stick.. the Roku stick has no way to access your TVs inputs.

To clarify, the Roku stick itself IS an input device itself.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Re: antenna icon missing

I just got the Roku box, not the stick, and there is no TV antenna in its settings either. The ONLY way to have antenna TV is to have a Ruko smart TV?

Re: antenna icon missing

Hi,

Thanks for the inquiry.

As @jeffrok mentioned, the Antenna input is only available on a Roku TV as they are equipped with a tuner that provides access to digital “over-the-air” broadcast television.


Thanks,
Danny

Re: antenna icon missing

I just needed to switch the input on my tv back to antenna.  Look for an “input” button on your television remote.

Antenna inputs are only found on devices with a TV tuner installed. No Roku player has a TV tuner. A Roku TV (like all televisions) has an internal ATSC tuner, so it has an antenna input and Antenna is an available source on the Roku home screen.
