Roku Streaming Stick - A5X + Setup?

Jump to solution

I bought a MirrorVue TV that has a build in TV in a mirror. It came with an Android TV box (A5X + Mini).

Do I connect my Roku stick to the HDMI port for on the TV or hook it to the USB port on the Android box.

The Roku stick only has an HDMI connector so it doesn’t seem likely that I use a USB to connect Roku to Android. Should I connect my Roku and Android to 2 separate HDMI ports - 1 for internet and I for Roku (Hulu etc)?

thanks

You can only connect a Roku player to a display with an HDMI 1.4 or higher connector. It doesn't support anything over USB other than power for some devices, or connecting an external drive to an Ultra.

You can't connect the Roku to the Android box in any way.
