    What I received from your "expert" is no help at all! I asked a very specific question - is there a port on this tv that I can connect an HDMI cable to, or do I use the RCA connection? I feel that I've been ripped off by the first answer.

    This guy makes sense; the first one sent out a load of BS, and in my opinion is no expert

Hi.

This TV has no HDMI connection. Rather than using the RCA (AV) cables I would use the component video connector, that can deliver full HD. Components cable must be connected using it along with audio cable (SPDIF or RCA).
Most Roku receivers have component connectors at the back, if the Roku is a model with no component, you will need to use AV cables.

Hi,

there are many HDMI cable available ( but it is not cheap )

One thing to check before buying is to Insure that you can view

clear images and sound using the basic cable connections


Once you have done that ( actually there are two kinds)

Component and Composite Cables.


then HDMI compatibility may be the issue , if you have it

already.


But check on the aspect ratio, the DVD settings as well

    Unless your using a HDMI to DVI Converter, but you have to connect the Audio Out

    of Roku to have sound on your TV

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 just Purchased a Roku 4 for streaming into my TV to stream via the internet. How should I connect the Roku device to the HDMI 1 or 2 on the back of my TV?


You usually connect it via HDMI cable, if you plug it into HDMI 1, that would be the channel you choose when changing the source on your television.

Connect roku tv to Sony Trinitron


The roku has a cable that you can connect to those 3 plugs. Take the HDMI cable back and give the salesman a piece of your mind. Once your roku is set up you can watch much more than NetFlix.

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.
