RCA to HDMI cable Usage with Roku Express

Jump to solution

I bought an RCA to HDMI converter cable to use my Roku Express with an older TV. However, it is not working. My question is, should this cable work for the Roku or am I just out of luck?

It was never going to work, you need a converter with circuitry to switch from hdmi to rca. A simple cable will never do it. You were scammed.
