I just bought a Roku 2 XD today. Basically, all I want to do is stream netflix to my smaller bedroom TV wirelessly from my home network router, since I already have a built in DVD.
The TV I have is a Toshiba 19LV505 LCD HDTV/DVD Combo. The bottom screen shows - HDMI, Dolby Digital, Compact Disc-digital audio, dts-digital out, and Divx logo capabilities. The information for this particular TV is at this link http://www.retrevo.com/search?q=19LV505 ... FDVD+Combo
I have an HDMI port on my TV and used a 6 foot Dynex High Speed HDMI ethernet cord to connect to the TV and Roku, instead of the enclosed three pronged cable ; )
If this makes a difference I am connected to Time Warner Cable at a set up of Sat - HD Color Stream; the main TV downstairs has a direct cable connection. When I look at the back of Toshiba TV that I want to connect the Roku to, I noticed there are cable connects between the TV and the cable/receiver box. I also noticed an HDMI open source on the back of the cable box.
Ok, so I hooked up the HDMI cord to Roku and TV, and nada.... nothing comes up at all. I checked the source input button, and do not see Roku in the menu as the installation booklet indicates is suppose to happen. I changed the setting to HD/HDMI in the source/input.... still nothing.
So I'm totally stumped as to what I need to do next???? I'm wondering if I should be connecting the other end of the HDMI cord to the cable box instead. So tried that and it still didn't work. I would be very appreciative of any help you can give me. Thanks, Bekka
I should clarify the HDMI cord a bit more. The sales clerk told me to buy the HDMI High Speed with ethernet cord. Does that make a difference since if I ever get this working I want to use my wireless router????
