Recommendation adapter for an older TV w/out HDMI & USB

Jump to solution

I have the Roku Express and can not connect it to a Lenovo TV.  Its HDMI connection is being used by the DVR and it does not have a USB.  Any ideas of the best adapter to use for optimal use?

The USB port is immaterial.  You need an HDMI switch.  Any of these would probably do the trick:

You connect the DVR and the Express to two of the switch inputs and then connect the switch output to your TV.  You need a total of 3 HDMI cables, but some come with a cable.
