Using Roku with a Surround Sound System

Greetings to all. I have a Roku Express connected to a Samsung Smart TV. I'm also using a Yamaha Amp for a 5:1 home theater system. The Roku Express does not have enough HDMI jacks to allow connection to the amplifier. Do I need a different Roku device. Thanks in advance for replies.

Thanks for the note.

If you are trying to connect your Roku device to a home theater system, you should plug the device directly into the amplifier directly.
