    Yeah... There are several highly-used channels that are no longer showing in the Channel Directory. I wonder what is happening?!?

    Which ones are missing? I can't check anything if I don't know what I'm looking for B)

    And what client do you use to access the Channel Directory? By default, when accessing the Channel Directory from a Roku, some channels are filtered out (because they're not compatible or because Roku wants us to not show them).

    That makes sense, if Roku says to remove them. =)

    The only two that I can remember, without looking, are Netflix and Spike. They don't show in the Channel Directory.

    Netflix and Spike are both US only. Maybe your region setting (Channel DirectoryMore...Preferences...Region) isn't set to United States?

    I'm not at home now, but I'll double-check.

    They show in my available channels, just not in the Directory.

    Yeah, nothing is showing up on my Roku suddenly. Not even the movies I have on my laptop. One minute it works fine, and suddenly nothing shows up. Weird.

    I have a similar problem: I used to have channels and for the second time in one week, only my queue appears on Roku and all the channels added do not show anymore, so does the Preference menu that allows me to manage my channels.

    The 1st time, I tried to reinstall Myplex on my computer and the channels came back on Roku. But it happened again tonight and I don't want to reinstall Myplex on my computer every second day. Is there a way to solve things out for good?

    Sounds very much like a networking issue. I would strongly suggest asking for help in the Roku client forum since the issue lies with the connection between the Roku client and PMS rather than with a specific channel.

    I have had this happen on occasion, usually a restart of the media server, a reboot of the Roku and waiting a few minutes is enough to get things right again. One time I actually had to reboot the router too. Never have I ever had to reinstall anything set things right.
