Thanks for the posts.

I have passed along the information the the appropriate Roku team to investigate further.

In the meantime, can you please check if you are experiencing the same issue across other channels, such as Netflix or The Roku Channel?

Please keep us posted what you find out.


Thanks,
Danny

We're having the same issue. It just started this weekend. We have an analog tv and no HDMI cable. Netflix plays fine but I can't get Roku tv to play after I have tried Amazon Prime. When I re-started Roku, Roku Tv would play but then I went back to try Amazon again and it gave me that error message and then Roku Tv wouldn't fire up. They seem to be connected somehow.

Hello Danny!

Thanks for your help.

I just tested Prime and it still gives me the message "There is a problem with the connection to your tv. Try using a different HDMI cable." Not using an HDMI cable as I'm connected with composite cables to my tv.

Tested Netflix - working fine.

Tested Roku Channel - working fine,

Ran Prime on my laptop - went directly to Amazon website without Roku - working fine.

Ran Prme on my i phone - went directly to Amazon website without Roku - working fine.

Hi Danny, thank you.

Here's the info you asked for.

Can you please provide us the following information:
-Roku device model, 3910RW Roku Express +

serial number,  Y9005H450897

device ID,   C53915450897

and software OS/version ,  10.5.0 Build 4201-51

Issue# ID 97-459-287

Noticed the issue on 11/14/21 after being away for the weekend. It was working fine on Thursday 11th.

The HDMI cable error notice only comes up on Amazon. Netflix is fine and the Roku and Tubi channels are fine as long as I haven't tried to play Amazon. After I try to play Amazon, neither Tubi or Roku start and the Roku system even went into a re-start cycle on its own.
