HDMI and HDCP issue, error 020 and no signal detected from HDMI

First screen on power on is usually no signal from HDMI 1. pressing the ok button takes you to home screen. have followed all self-help steps to set tv source to HDMI 1. Second problem relates to HDCP. only when I go to the Spectrum icon, the HDCP error 020 screen pops up. You can still hear the audio but the only way to correct is to unplug the HDMI cable and plug it back in. This is very annoying.

Hi @BobC911

Thanks for the post.

Could you tell us how are you powering your Roku device? Is it connected to the USB port of the TV or to a wall outlet? In some cases, the USB power provided by the TV is not sufficient to power the device. Even though your Roku device may appear to be working, running with insufficient power can lead to instability, crashing, and other unpredictable behavior.

Using the included power cord and power adapter, we suggest plugging your Roku into a working power outlet in the wall. Powering it through a power outlet in the wall has the additional advantage that your Roku player will not need to power up every time you turn on your TV. This means your Roku player will be up and running faster than it would be connected to a TV.

Let us know if there's any difference after.


All the best,
Kariza

I’m having the same problem and the power is from the wall with the supplied adaptor and cable. I’ve tried disconnecting the cables and power and tried it on a second TV. 

Nothing helps. I’m about to return it. Very frustrating.

I have the same issue. But it isn’t just when I go to spectrum. Has anyone got any suggestions for this? Why can’t we get communications from the Roku company?!
