  1. I’m trying to save favorites on Roku live but when I pick a channel (Hallmark Movies & More). I pushes the * button but it doesn’t say add to favorites. It just says switch guide to all channels or recent channels

    • I just purchased a TCL Roku TV. There may have been firmware updates, but after choosing the favorite channels, close that function and watch any channel. Click the left arrow key to get to the “Guide” column on the left and press the asterisk ‘*’ key to display a set of channel options. Choose ‘Filter’ and choose ‘Favorites”.
