Why all of a sudden is my Direct TV Streaming asking me to sign in? I never did that before.

What streaming devices are you using?
Where is my account overview and how do I get to it (you are not dealing with a rocket scientist here)
The picture is back, but now the channel number does not appear on the screen....is there a magic cure for that?
Do you have your guide set to sort by channel numbers?
I clicked on the "guide" on the remote, but did not see anywhere that I could "set" the guide to sort by Channels
Left-hand side under "Sort" in guide. Select numeric.
When in DirectTV and I click on "guide" it automatically reverts back to Samsung TV and there are no options. I did it four times and every time the same....Sorry to be so uninformed....
Are using the Samsung Smart TV app for DirecTV Stream or are using a external device like Roku of Fire Stick.
I have both DirectV Stream and Samsung Smart TV on my TV and I can switch between them with the remote....I think that a power outage here somehow affected the internal part of the TV because I did nothing to change the operation of the TV and when I switched it off one night it was fine, and the next day it was messed up without my help....I have no external device.
The app for the Samsung Smart TV is known to have a lot of bugs and is very inferior. There are 100's of posts in the forum on the issues. Most have opted to go with external streaming devices instead of continuing to use the app. I would highly recommend that you consider the option. The external devices are more powerful and support more apps. They also get more frequent updates. At some point, the TV makers just quit supporting in lieu of selling newer TV's, which is their business.
