2 New Channels..No content!

I just created two new channels one of them runs off of JSON and one is coming off of a streamhoster feed. one of them is for a livestream only, and was working last night... And another is on demand videos. Today I open both channels and all I have is a search icon. Although last night the one with the livestream was working perfectly. Any idea what could be going on? How do I fix this?

When I go and refresh the feeds... It says one item for the livestream has been ingested... And 15 items have been ingested for the on demand channel.

There are some other posts that talk about the Json issue.  For some, it was adding a required .BIF file.  If you haven't already, you should read those posts to see if they can help.
As for the feed you posted, you should validate it against the MRSS Feed Specs.  At a minimum, make sure that your thumbnails are 800x450 (16x9 aspect ratio).

Probably another bug introduced by Roku. I had 40 channels couple of hours ago and now only 2 channels show up when i open the app.

New DP update bug is bigger than I was thinking. Today, I noticed that they removed "just added" category in the channel store. It's bad.

Okay so here's an update:

- Live stream channel works. Everything.

- VOD Channel still no thumbnails. But on the preview screen here in the Dev Area, they all display. I have no idea what to do.

Re: 2 New Channels..No content!

@Enpointe  Did you validate your thumbnail sizes?

@mosafer  I don't think removing "Just Added" is a bug.  If you look further, Roku is redesigning the menu layout.  I think they're trying to improve it, but, it makes finding things a bit harder.

@Baradanikto I know, it is not a bug. I think it's a cover up for the bug. Imagine showing 40 Just added DP channels that are not working properly. Smiley Sad
