Just Moved In

I can't see some of my subscribed channels in the guide. I have it in my favorites as well. Even when I select "all channels" Treehouse doesn't show up. Anyone had this problem?

Just Moved In

I can only get some of my channels by pressing the number of the channel. I try push the up or down and it just skips the channels even tho I'm subscribed to them.
