Channel certification - deep link issue

Looking for advice.

We have a channel which is already published but we cannot get any updates submitted because we keep failing CBA specifically for deep linking.  Seems the requirements have changed since we last updated.

Anyway we do have deep linking support for live but it's not possible for roku automated tests to verify it.

You see our product required our tv tuner to be present on the network, our app detects its presence and can then play a channel from it, by url to the scene graph video player.

But of course roku test platform does not have our hardware.

We implemented deep link to play any channel given to us - provided our hardware is present of course.

We can only play live tv or recordings made using our dvr.

But we are not a typical 'channel' in that we don't stream content for playback.

Reading the requirements 5.1 says that live streams are exempt from the deep link requirement but I don't see how I can tell the automated CBA tests that.  But I did add support so you can tell the app to play a particular channel.

I am stuck in how to proceed.
