Question about Roku XD Streaming Player 1080P Wireless-N (2050X)

Open Question

Roku Video, JVC TV, not connecting

I'm trying to connect our new Roku player for the first time. We're using an HDMI cable, and the box seems to be working (the light comes on). However, the tv is not getting the signal at all. So, I can't see the menu, if it's coming up, and I have no idea if the player is actually working. What I need to figure out is how to make the tv recognize the HDMI input. Any hints?

How do I hook up a roku stick?


I am guessing you mean the HDMI connector type Roku?

You simply plug the Roku into a free HDMI port on your TV, then switch your TV input to the proper HDMI selection, then start your setup. I believe this also needs to be plugged into the wall for power as HDMI does not supply power.

If you have an iPhone or other similar devices, you can download the ROKU app to control the device.

I have sound but no picture


Check your connections between your Roku box and your TV more than likely you have the audio cables plugged into the wrong jacks, Using a single HDMI cable would eliminate this issue if you have an available HDMI input on your TV. Notice which jacks are the audio output jacks on this pic, make sure these are connected to the input on your TV, the ONLY time you don't use these jacks id if you are using the HDMI connection, they are REQUIRED for composite video, component video (high def color) and S-video.

I have a 2009 Lg 37lh30 Tv and for the most part it works until recently. I am now getting a HDCP rejection when using an Apple tv or Roku and no screen when using my bluRay Player (which use to work


Some TV's & cables are not HDCP compliant . Sometimes you can replace the cable to fix the problem & other times you have to replace the tv because its not HDCP compliant . First check to see if your tv is HDCP compliant .

Roku 3 hdcp


Hello... I searched the internet and found this. I hope this helps...

To resolve the "HDCP unauthorized. Content disabled" issue, try these steps:
  1. If you are trying to stream 4K Ultra HD content when you see the purple screen, review the instructions for setting up your Roku player for 4K. Go to the next step if you continue to see a purple screen.
  2. On both your Roku player and your TV or AVR, unplug each end of the HDMI cable.
  3. Power off your TV and your Roku player and unplug their respective power supplies.
  4. Reconnect both ends of the HDMI cable, pushing them firmly, all the way in.
  5. Reconnect your TV and your Roku player to their power supplies and power them on.
  6. Try viewing the video again.
If the above did not resolve your issue, try these additional suggestions:
  • Try a different HDMI input on your TV.
  • Try using a different HDMI cable (less than 6 feet if available), just to make sure the cable you are currently using does not have any defects.
  • If you are using an HDMI switch or AVR, try connecting the Roku player directly to the TV.
  • Try another TV, if possible.
  • If you are using a computer monitor, try using a TV, if possible.
  • Try using different Display Settings on your Roku player. You can find these settings under Settings >Display type.
  • If this is the first time you are seeing this HDCP purple screen after setting up your Roku player, ensure that your TV and/or AVR supports HDCP. Contact your equipment manufacturer for more information.

WE JUST BOUGHT ROKU , HOOKED IT UP , CAN'T GET ANYTHING ELSE TO COME UP


Hi,

You must match the TV's input connections and the Roku output on your remote. This means if the Roku's output is connected to your TV's "HDMI 2" (or A/V 2, etc.), you must be able to select HDMI 2 (or A/V 2, etc) on the TV - either with your remote or pressing a button on the TV itself.

Sometimes, the TV will skip over unused inputs when it was first set up. This is done to reduce the number of button presses to go from say "HDMI 1" to "HDMI 4" by programming OUT the HDMI 2 & HDMI 3 choices.

You'll need to program IN the input that your TV uses to connect the Roku if it isn't already available. You MUST connect cables properly if not using HDMI. RGB is Red-Green-Blue and must be connected to RGB jacks at the Roku and TV for a picture and the the White & Red (left and right) audio must connect the the corresponding Red / White audio jacks - or it will provide strange results.

Make sure the power plug is connected to an outlet that is ON and connected to the power jack on the Roku box itself. Unless you have a defective Roku box or TV, it SHOULD work. You can try using a different HDMI or A/V jacks on the TV to determine if it is the TV jacks or not.

Good luck!

I have connected a Roku Digital Media Player to Sharp AQUOS TV, I am able to get the video but no audio from TV, Audio cable and all are setup properly. Can anyone suggest me? also i see the same problem...


Use the HDMI cable on the Roku. The reason you don't have audio from the laptop is because the HDMI out on the laptop has no audio on it. You need to use a 3.5 mm audio cable to connect the laptop audio to the TV.
