... I turn on my Sony TV and then the Roku express + ...
Let me get this straight:
You don’t want to do basic troubleshooting. You’d rather spend more time arguing over a simple test than actually performing the test. Got it.
Good luck with your issue.
Troubleshooting is a process of elimination. IE: Replace unit, replace power supply, replace cables, replace remote, etc.
I've replaced the Roku unit, the HDMI cable and the power supply.
I DID ask for Roku to chime in. Not once. Twice.
Feel free now to defend the lack of a response from Roku.
It's not turning ON.
Only the power supply or the remote power these things on. It is NOT "powered" by my TV in any way, shape or form.
I've swapped out the remotes. I"ll hope that fixes the issue.
