Does the Ultra LT work with all TVs or just newer models?

All Roku players will work with almost any TV with an HDMI input. There are some early HDTVs that didn't support 1080p, and some of them seem to be problematic about the Roku instead choosing 720p. It's usually because the TV isn't advertising its resolution capabilities via the EDID identification protocol. You can usually put the Roku on another TV, set it manually to 720p and take it back to the problem TV and it then works. 

But if your TV is recent and supports 720p and 1080p, there's no issue with any model Roku. They will all work. The Ultra LT is merely a Walmart specific model, and is basically the Ultra 4660/61 without a USB port.
