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?

Just hooked up the streaming stick to HDMI to the TV. nothing is showing up, What do I do now?


Sounds like you have a bad connection on either your roku stick or your HDMI PORT.Does you ROKU stick show a white light if not check power cable or electrical plug.
Try wiggling ROKU stick just a hair or push it in and out until you get a signal..A purple screen with the words ROKU should show up on TV.If you have a bad port on TV it would have to be replaced but this is rare,if you have a second port on tv try that.Have you tried your ROKU stick on another tv?Does your streaming stick go in vertically or horizontally,if it goes in vertically it may be pressing against side of tv prohibiting a good connection.You could try a HDMI cable, plug the HDMI cable into tv and put ROKU in other side of cable.There is also a restart button on ROKU stick push it and it will start blinking,if it doesn't light up you may have a defective ROKU stick.

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 .

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.

No owners manual can't get new blue ray dvd player to work on tv


Here is the manual:
http://www.hdtvsolutions.com/pdf/JVG%20HD52G56G.pdf

When using the HDMI connections you may have to tell the DVD to output to that port.  Also you may have to connect additional sound cables from the DVD output to the TV.
