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.
Just bought two new in the box, Roku Express + units. Got first hooked up and running no problem. Second unit is connected to an older Panasonic T(tau) tube tv. This tv is a 1080i HDTV with a single HDMI input. Tv has been connected via this HDMI to a Samsung Smart BluRay player for a couple years with no issues. Wanted to upgrade to the Roku to add flexibility to streaming choices not offered via the Samsung player. Connected Roku via HDMI, power is connected, but only a scramble screen is seen (can actually see the startup menu change in the background but it’s completely scrambled) Assuming some type of compatibility issue between TV’s HDMI input and the Roku’s HDMI output??? Even swapped the HDMI chords to check that AND tried the first player that I mentioned setting up on first TV in other room; same issue occurs on Panasonic with other player that’s working fine in other room. Thoughts?
I'm having this same issue w/a 3910x on an old Panasonic Triple play. I picked up a 3910x second hand, specifically so I can hook up w/the RCA connectors, but it comes out scrambled. HDMI works on another TV. Any updates? Does this work?
If it was used, it might not have oem breakout cable, roku's breakout cable conductors are different from other 3.5 to rca cables. So instead of receiving video from the yellow cable you're actually getting audio. They sell them:
