I have the same issue.  My tv just died.  My laptop that I have been able to watch the roku on now either won't connect, or when it does connect there's nothing there.  I have an hdmi port on this laptop but don't know how to view anything connected to it on the computer since I've never done it before.  I have windows 10.

@Jawaroo  Thanks for reaching out. We're sorry to hear about your TV! 

Most computer's HDMI ports are for HDMI-out usage, to be able to connect your computer to another display, such as a projector, a larger monitor, or TV, etc. We'd recommend contacting your computer's manufacturer directly for more information about the features and functionality of that device. 

If you're looking for more ways to watch, feel free to check out 'The Roku Channel' online at: https://therokuchannel.roku.com/

We offer both free and premium subscription content that you can watch from supported computers/browsers. See more here: https://support.roku.com/article/360007223934

 

Thanks,
