Playstation vue logoLast week PlayStation Vue quietly rolled out an updated Roku Channel with a slightly updated user interface. Many have been upset as they complain about bugs after the update, now though there seems to be one change that was not noticed when the update first rolled out.

Now when you try to watch a show that is being recorded, you have some new playback options. First, you can watch the show live jumping you right into it as it happens. If you had already started the show, you can now resume playback right from where you left off. Lastly, you can start the show from the beginning. This gives you more options to watch shows you are recording.

Struggling with the new Playstation Vue Roku update? Here are the known bugs and possible fixes:

Lost DVR Recordings:

Some readers are reporting they have lost their DVR recordings. There is a simple fix for this close out of the PlayStation Vue Roku Channel and restart it to find your DVRed shows. If that does not work reboot your Roku by unplugging it and plugging it back in.

Lost Favorite Channels:

One of the most annoying bugs is that PlayStation Vue subscribers have lost access to their favorite channels in the channel guide. Sadly the Favorites Channels, for now, are gone in the guide but at the top of the PlayStation Vue home screen, you will now find a tab at the top called Favorite Channels. There you can find your previously saved Favorite Channels. Hopefully, they return to the guide soon.

Unable to Pause:

Some readers are reporting that when they try to pause PlayStation Vue the video stops for a second and immediately starts back up. The only fix we have found so far in exiting out of the Roku Channel doing a full restart of your Roku. This has reportedly helped some PlayStation Vue subscribers.

Sadly there is no fix to return the Roku OK button to its proper function.
