Older TV

Hi I have an older TV with ONE HDMI input that I'm using for cable. I want to add Roku but keep cable.

How do I add Roku and keep cable? Will remote switch between the two signals?

TKS

Re: Older TV

I doubt it. Unless you want to manually swap out the two physically......

You might have VGA ports you might be able to use but,

The Good News is new TV's are pretty cheap these days.

You can go this route of a HDMI splitter device

But I think you might as well get a new TV.

Re: Older TV

I'd suggest a SWITCH rather than a SPLITTER.
