Roku Express + with composite video

Roku Express + with composite video and HDMI video.

HDMI works fine.  When composite video is used, picture is dark.

Is there a way to adjust picture brightness when using composite video?

Re: Roku Express + with composite video


The older Roku Express+ (models 3710, 3910) use composite not component. Some TV inputs are hybrid composite/component, where the green component also serves as the yellow composite. Some automatically switch to composite when that alone is connected, others use a switch or menu setting to change it to composite.

Brightness is a TV control - you need to adjust it via your TV's settings.
