You have to connect it with AV, go in the setup and change it to low definition. Then after it connects hdmi change the definition to high. I had to do it with mine like that.

How do I hook up a HD satallite dvr to a av reciever dvd player and HDTV using HDMI cables


Things You’ll Need:
  • HD television
  • HD satellite or cable receiver
  • DVD player
  • Stereo receiver
  • AV cables
  • Cable connector
  • HDMI cables
Step1Examine the back of your HDTV. You will see a series of input jacks for AV cables, (typically color-coded white and red for audio and yellow for video), as well as an antenna input and one or more HDMI input jacks. There will likely be a number of them, but each one should be distinguished with a label ("video," "cable" or something similar). Step2Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV. Step3Connect the AV cables to the DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver or whichever other component you wish to connect to the television. The cables should line up by color: place the white cable in the white input jack, the red cable in the red input jack and the yellow cable in the yellow input jack. All three cables from each component need to go into the same label input jacks. Usually, they will all line up in a vertical row. Step4Find the HDMI output jack on your receiver or DVD player (some receivers will not have them--they are necessary to receive a high definition signal--but can still play on the TV through the cable connector or AV cables). Attach one end of an HDMI cable to the output jack of the receiver and the other end into the input jack on the HDTV. Step5Turn on the TV. Access the menu with your remote, and follow any instructions it gives you. Your HDTV may require a few additional steps to complete the hookup of the receiver (though not all of them will). Step6Access the "input" button on your TV remote. This will allow you to switch the TV signal to one of the cable connections you have just made. For example, if you attached the HDMI cable to the first of two HDMI input jacks, the TV will flash "HDMI 1" on the screen to tell you that is where it is receiving its signal. Hope that helps..........

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.

You didn't say which Roku you have, so I will assume you have a Roku 3 since it's the only one without RCA output jacks (the red, white, and yellow jacks you mention). You can return the Roku 3 and get a Roku 2. You can only attach the Roku to a switching box if 1) the Roku has the RCA outputs and your switch has A/V inputs. If you DO have the Roku 3, then you may be able to purchase a HDMI to RCA cable from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/HDMI-RCA-VGA-Cable-1-8m/dp/B002ZUI68G

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!

My roku streaming device is froze on this blue screen and will not change?


Glenda, Are you connected to your tv by HDMI or AV cables?
The blue screen is usually an indication of one of two things.
1: The HDMI cable has come loose but not entirely disconnected (Turn off Roku and TV unplug the HDMI cable from the Roku AND Tv and reconnect them making sure to seat the ends securely and turn on TV and Roku in that order)
2: your TV or receiver may not support HDCP (a content copy-protection solution) over HDMI. This is generally true for older TV models that have early HDMI implementations that do not follow current standards. Try connecting your player with the included A/V composite cable instead.

I have just brought a rx-v367 av reciever and have connected it to my tv/ speakers. speakers work fine when testing set up. however there is no sound coming out when connected to tv. also it keeps coming...


Hi, Yamaha audio-video receivers are equipped with a variety of connecting jacks for hooking up different types of electronic equipment. Component AV cables are typically used for hooking up the receiver to a cable TV box. Component cables can also be used to connect the Yamaha receiver to an HDTV, although a High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) cable offers a simpler connection if the receiver is equipped with HDMI (all HDTV sets are equipped with the distinctive, six-sided HDMI jack). The connections should take less than five minutes.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* 2 sets component AV cables
* HDMI cable


Check the back of the Yamaha receiver to determine if HDMI is available. The six-sided jack contains 19 holes set in three rows. If the receiver is equipped with an HDMI Out port, use an HDMI cable to connect to the TV by inserting the plug straight into the jack with the wider end turned upward.


Insert the red, green and blue plugs on a set of component AV cables into the Video Out jacks on the cable TV box, matching the plug colors to the jacks.


Connect the plugs on the other end to a set of Video In jacks on the back of the Yamaha receiver. Make a note of which jacks are used for the connection. Each set of jacks is labeled on the receiver.


Insert the audio plugs on the component cables into the Audio Out jacks on the cable box, using the white plug for the left channel and the red plug for the right.


Attach the plugs on the other end to the Audio In jacks on the Yamaha receiver.


Use a second set of component AV cables to connect from the AV Out jacks on the Yamaha to the AV In jacks on the HDTV only if an HDMI cable was not used.

SO FAR FIXYA IS BS


Really? Try reading the messages you've been sent.

I've pasted this from your premium support request:


Your TV will not accept an HDMI signal from the Roku box. In the TV specifications on page 104 of your user manual you will note this:

HDMI jack x 2
Note: The Digital-In terminal is not compatible with picture signals of a personal computer.

The Roku box is effectively a PC. It is receiving digital media via the internet and streaming it to your TV in the same way as a standard PC would.

The only way you will get this to work, is with a different type of cable. I would suggest component AV.


Hope this helps. Unfortunately, your purchase of incompatible equipment is beyond our control.
