The CW Displaying Only 1/4 to 1/3 Picture on Express+
I have three Roku Express+ units (Model 3910 era), all connected via composite cable to older CRT television sets. After the OS 10.5 update, the CW channel will only display 1/4 to 1/3 of the screen. This is not an issue on my Ultra unit connected via HDMI cable, so it has to be related to the composite connection. I have tried unplugging, restarting, etc., etc., but nothing works. This leads me to believe there's a software compatibility issue, but I'm not sure which software - OS or channel. Would appreciate any assistance in resolving the issue. Thanks!
Re: The CW Displaying Only 1/4 to 1/3 Picture on Express+
It's only happening with The CW. Again, it's been since the recent Roku 10.5 OS update, and only happening with Ultra Plus units (Model 3910 era) connected to older CRT television sets via the composite cable.
If you're still experiencing an issue, try to remove the channel, update the Roku device by going to Settings > System > System update > Check now, restart your Roku device, and add back the channel. If the issue still persists, we suggest you reach out to the channel partner directly.
In some cases, removing the channel then re-installing it may help. To ensure the process is successful, make sure to restart your device before adding the channel back in. We would recommend doing this from the Settings menu by navigating to Settings > System > Power (If you do not see a Power submenu, skip to the next step.) > System restart.
Re: Only the Cw app only displays 1/4 size at left
I also am having this issue with the Roku Express + since the update. I have older TVs and can't afford new ones, and they have stopped selling the Roku Express + with the composite cords; the one I need. I. However, tried the remedy suggested and it did not work. What else do ya got?
I only have one Roku Express+ unit and it is the same model number as you. It is connected to my old Magnavox CRT set model TS2756-C102, mfd. Sept. 1994, through one of my switchers connected to my old Sharp HiFi VCR, mfd. June 1991. What are the brands/models of your CRT sets?
I’m into videotapes and old electronics stuff, including extenders, converters and analog 4:3 TV sets (which are obsolete these days), and Miss Bianca is my favorite character in Disney’s The Rescuers (1977) and its sequel, The Rescuers Down Under (1990). I am not a Roku employee, only a user like you. ~ Jordan
