Re: Setup roku on old tv

Per this chart all Roku units, except the first generation Roku SD (N1050) from 2009, can output at least 720p.  Might it be that the Roku itself is set to display at a higher resolution that can't be displayed via composite?  Without a visual display, I don't know how this could be checked or changed.
