Help getting started with Roku devices, including setup, connecting your device to your TV, linking a Roku device to your account at my.roku.com/link, adding channels, subscribing to services, and more.
I have an unused Roku 3800x. I would like to connect to my PC monitor, but I'm not sure what adapters will work. The PC is an HP7800 running Windows 7 (32 bit) with USB 2 ports. I am using the onboard VGA output. I have a bluetooth adapter in use with headphones that work fine.
The monitor is n HP LA1951g monitor with VGA (used by my PC) and an unused DVI port. No built in speakers.
I see a few options:
1. Use a USB to HDMI adapter to connect to my PC via USB 2
2. Use an HDMI to DVI adapter to connect to my monitor and an audio cable to connect from the adapter to my PC speakers
3. Replace the monitor with an HDMI port and speakers built in.
4. Give the whole project up and go back to crossword puzzles for entertainment.
I'd like to do this as inexpensively as possible, but don't want to end up with fuzzy or choppy video.
