Re: Connecting my Roku Streaming Stick+ to my AV system and projector?

I'm curious if you received any help with this?  I am trying to connect Roku Streaming Stick+ to my Pioneer receiver to play on my Optoma projector and I can't get it to work.  Thanks, Scott

Plug it in to an HDMI input on your receiver and see if it works. Many recievers have a USB port to power such a device; mine does.

Re: Connecting my Roku Streaming Stick+ to my AV system and projector?

I have never tried a streaming stick in my home theater system; the streaming sticks always seemed like a nice, convenient plug-and-play option for a wall-mounted TV (I have 3 set up this way) but not really a good idea in a nice A/V system.  I have always used the boxes (Roku XD, then a Roku 3, now a Roku Ultra) in my component rack over the years.  That being said, I don't see why it wouldn't work.  What problem are you having? What receiver are you using? What projector are you using? Are you connecting the USB cord to ensure the streaming stick has power?  I have not had any issues with my SC-63/Epson 8350 passing/displaying HDMI signals or decoding audio from Roku products.
