Cable not connecting to my Roku TV

I've made various intents to connect my cable box to my Ruko TV. However, when I try connecting my cable the TV displays "No signal (Is your cable connected?)". I properly connected my cable box to the TV and my cable has always been functioning properly. I've even tried connecting my Ruko TV to another cable box in another room but had no luck. I want to know what I can do to connect to Ruko TV to my cable.

Re: Cable not connecting to my Roku TV

How are you attempting to connect it? Via HDMI?

How did you connect it to your previous TV?

I don't have a wire to connect my cable box to an HDMI input however I've connected the cable box through the Antenna/Cable input which is how I connected it on my old TV.

Cable boxes connected that way must be accessed via the Antenna/Live TV option on the Roku TV.  The cable box likely has its output on either channel 3 or 4, so you have to set the TV tuner to display the proper channel.

And to add... if that cable box has an HDMI output do yourself a favor and get an HDMI cable to connect it to your TV.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying is the problem. Please describe the issue you're having with cable not being able to connect to your Roku TV.

I have an account with spectrum, which used to be listed  on my home page in ROKU. It is no longer listed, so I cannot get to my Spectrum tv

So your situation is a missing app. That's not quite what this thread is about.

Regarding Spectrum, as I'm not a Spectrum customer, I'm not going to be of any help. I am aware that there is a dispute between Spectrum and Roku regarding the app. New users can't get the app, to my understanding, but existing users can get and keep it.

There are other threads about Spectrum app disappearing. One is 88 pages long. From what I'm able to understand, contacting Spectrum about the disappearance of the app can lead to them helping you get it back. I have no idea how helpful weekend support at Spectrum might be. If they aren't able to help, you might want to try again on Monday if they can't help today.
