[SOLVED] Thumbnail icons disappeared in most channels

Last week, almost all of my channels' thumbnail icons disappeared from each and every video in every list. Plex, iTunes Podcasts, Soma FM, Pandora, Nowhere TV... everything except Amazon. I've rebooted my Roku, and rebooted my router, but the thumbnails are still missing. Anyone else? I'm really scratching my head on this one.

You got an SD card in your Roku? Remove it and see if that fixes the problem after a reboot.

^ No, no SD card.... So I gather that this hasn't happened to you. I guess it hasn't happened to everybody else, either, or else everybody would be posting here screaming bloody murder.... Why do these things always happen only to me?

Re: Thumbnail icons disappeared in most channels

Holy-moly! I had a power outage while I was out of my house this afternoon, and it was long enough to run down my UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) battery, so my Roku had a complete power-down. And now all my thumbnail icons are back! I wonder why a reboot didn't do it, but a power cycle did. Anyway, problem solved, and I know what to do next time.
