Roku express to rca connectors?

Jump to solution

We purchased 3 Roku express devices forgetting that one of the 3 TV sets had a blown HDMI card.  Is is possible to purchase a hdmi to RCA connection cable that will work with this device or do I need to get a different model?

If your set has composite RCA connectors (yellow video, red & white audio) you can get a converter such as this one: https://www.amazon.com/Composite-Converter-Supports-Chromecast-DVD-Black/dp/B0732NF969

If it has component RCA connectors (red, green, and blue component video, separate red & white audio) look for a converter like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Converter-Wenter-Component-Support-Projector/dp/B07RFFWJWL/ref=sr_1_4

[Disclaimer: I have no personal experience with either of these converters, they're just examples of the typs of coverters you can use.]

Will a Express+ with the enhanced remote, control the volume and on/off functions on the TV when connected through a HDMI to RCA adapter?

Yes, because controlling it by IR, directly from the remote to tv, and not through a hdmi connector.

 Wife has a triple play TV, VHS/DVD in craft room and I was trying to find out if Roku would allow her to watch content with one remote, we are trying to cut cable equipment costs.

Thanks much.

So the enhanced/voice remote that is suppose to control the TV does it by telling the TV what to do through the HDMI? Or does it include the electronics like every other non-manufacturer remote that loads a brand specific code? I have bought the Roku Enhanced remote, $19.95 at Walmart, and it works on my older Roku box and controls TV, but it was HDMI. Trying to see if it will work before I buy a HDMI/composite converter box.

Thanks
