Can I remove the search button from my DP channel since it doesn't seem to work?

Jump to solution

the search button automatically shows up on my DP channel but it does not work. I wouldn't mind it there if it did work, but since it doesn't, I would like to remove it from my channel. Does anyone know how to do this?

hi @freetochoose  , you cannot , but if it is not working , why not ask Roku Dev Support to take a look  , they should be able to fix it.

I have two channels.  One is built using a JSON feed and it does not show a search button.  The other is built using an XML feed and it does show the search button.  The search works correctly using the XML feed.  It's my understanding that you need an XML feed to support the Search function.  If you are using an XML feed, you should contact Partner Success.  Otherwise, this may yet be another DP bug.

my channel is a json file. My videos were too long to use a xml file from what I understand. I would rather have used an xml feed. I feel like I would have had more freedom. My json feed is up to over 6000 lines of code and a pain in the **bleep** sometimes

I sent an email this morning but was hoping for a quick fix from someone in the community. They can take a while to respond sometimes
