Roku TV Input Question ( ROKU )

I have a DVD Player and a separate VHS Player. I have the DVD Player connected to my Roku TV through the AV Ports on the TV but I also want to connect the VHS Player. Can I connect the VHS Player to the TV through the HDMI and USB Port or do I need an adapter?

May we know what model type is your VHS player? Usually, VHS players are connected through an auxiliary cord.

Re: Roku TV Input Question ( ROKU )

You need an adapter - an RCA-to-HDMI converter.  Something like this:


Make sure you get one from a place with a good return policy as these things can be hit or miss or you may not be completely satisfied with the results.  Note that they make HDMI-to-RCA and RCA-to-HDMI.  They're not equivalent and you need the latter.

One other option that won't require any adapter is to connect a coax cable from your VHS player to the TV's antenna input and then change to channel 3 or 4 on the TV, as appropriate, when you want to use the VHS player.
