Trying to hook up Roku Express to tv with no hdmi ports
I'm trying to connect a Roku Express to an older Phillips-Magnavox tv with no HDMI ports. I had a Sony Blu Ray player connected to this tv with an adapter cord that connects HDMI to the older RCA connectors on the back of the tv. The HDMI-RCA adapter is not working with the Roku Express-- I just have a black screen. It doesn't even go to the set-up menu. Any ideas or suggestions wold be greatly appreciated...preferably before I put a brick through the screen in frustration.
P.S. I was able to connect the RE to a newer tv with an available HDMI port on the back, so it's not a problem with the player.
