Re: Adapt roku express to rca only tv. Cannot stop scrolling any suggestions

I suspect the problem is with the HDMI-Composite adaptor, but just in case it's the Roku, maybe a restart of the Roku unit will correct it.  If the scrolling prevents you from controlling things via the remote, pull the Roku's power plug for a few seconds then plug back in to restart.  Otherwise you can restart via Settings > System > System restart > Restart.
