Setting up DVD Player, can't get past language selection

I am trying to connect a blueray DVD player to my Roku TV via HDMI cable. It connects, but won't allow me to proceed past language selection, it stops on that screen and won't allow me to choose a language. How do I fix this? I've tried restarting the TV and switching HDMI ports. Has anyone else had this problem?

If that's the Blu Ray player menu you're stuck on, then it has nothing to do with your Roku TV. Are you certain you're using the Blu Ray player remote? The TV remote will most likely not control the BD player. Beyond that, you'd have to ask for help from the player manufacturer, not here on a Roku forum.

Are you pointing the DVD remote directly at the DVD player?

I just used the DVD remote instead of the Roku remote and that works
