What's the name and model number of your roku? Settings> System> about>

Your roku doesn't have hdmi? Your using RCA cables to connect to the tv?

There's input named Cable, can you rename it via the tv menu? Because at one time a cable box was plugged in there it was named cable, the cable box is gone but the name remains. It doesn't matter what's named, it works doesn't it?
