Help getting started with Roku devices, including setup, connecting your device to your TV, linking a Roku device to your account at my.roku.com/link, adding channels, subscribing to services, and more.
First, make sure you ordered the right kind of converter. You want HDMI input toVGA ouput or HDMI input toRCA output. There are converters that go the other way around. HDMI to VGA should theoretically give you a better picture if it supports HDCP (copy protection). If it doesn't it may not work at all or may only work at lower resolutions.
So, today, My Roku EXPRESS gear arrived. I called the seller (Electronics Express outta Nashville). one of their guys told me I would be able to connect this old Sony to the Roku box via my TV's DVI-HDMI setup. Woo HOO!!! Two more pieces of gear, and I should be up and running!!! Any other hints and tips?
