Re: Can’t get roku to fit the tv screen

Do the Roku home and menu pages fill the screen?
If so, is this on everything you watch or just on some old content that was not created in wide screen?

We tried that and it just makes the picture distorted ( cuts off screen makes the picture too big

What Roku model and number is it?  If you can see enough of the home screen, menu path Settings > System > About will give you this information.

What is the make and model of the TV?

What port(s) on the TV is the Roku connected to?
