Will Roku Premiere work with a 10-year old HDTV?

Have a 10-year old Samsung HDTV, Model # UN40B6000VF and noted "R-P" indicates "compatible with 4K/HDR TV" w/an HDCP 2.2 HDMI port. Requesting if my tv will support the Roku Premiere?

Thank you

Re: Will Roku Premiere work with a 10-year old HDTV?

I'm using a couple of new Roku Ultras on a couple of sets around that vintage. It detects them as 1080p sets with HDCP 1.4 and they work fine at 1080p 60Hz. I assume if I get a new set capable of 4K and HDR10, supporting HDCP 2.2, it will detect that and output at the new resolution and colorspace. In the meantime, it's downward compatible with HD sets.

As long as it has HDMI and supports HDCP, it will work with most any Roku. Even an old TV with DVI may work, although you won't get audio. I also have a nearly 10-year old Sony, and it works fine with my Roku 4.

If I won't get audio (sound) why go to all the trouble; then it is NOT compatible, correct?

Andyross was referring to using DVI input, which doesn't include audio. Where Hdmi will, so its compatible.
