replacing roku 2 with streambar

I want to replace my Roku 2 with a Roku streambar but my TV is mounted on a wall and there is no access to the back of the set. Can I just unplug the connection on the back of the Roku 2 and plug in the Streambar?

Re: replacing roku 2 with streambar

Yes, as long as you're not looking to use the Streambar as a soundbar to get audio from antenna channels or other devices connected to the TV.  For that, you'd have to connect the Streambar to an HDMI ARC input on the TV if it even has one.  You'll get audio through the Streambar for any Roku channels/apps you use and for any other device (e.g., Blu-ray player) you'll get audio through the TV's speakers.  It's also possible that your Roku 2 was connected to an ARC port on the TV and then you're good to go.
