Watch dvd

Jump to solution
So. Bought hisense Roku tv. Bought Phillips dvd / blu ray player.

Everything seems to work... Roku finds WiFi, DVD player turns on, Remote appears to work..,

Except when I select my DVD player which is in hdmi 2

It looks like it will bring it up, but stalls at select your language. I cannot get past that...

I tried pairing the remote but I must be dumb. I cannot find any button at all inside remote battery compartment.

I don’t know what to do ack!

You can't find a pairing button because the remote is most likely IR only, which doesn't require pairing. It only controls the TV.

That is the DVD asking for a selection, not the Roku. You have to use the DVD remote. The TV's remote will not control the DVD player.
