Hello! I am not very tech savvy and need some advice. My ISP keeps raising it's prices on cable, internet and telephone so I am discontinuing their service at the beginning of October. I have ordered Wi-Fi from Comcast and would like to check into buying a Roku for my TV and stream Netflix and Hulu. Before I invest in a Roku I would greatly appreciate it if someone could advise me whether it would be compatible with my TV. It is an older model (bought it around 2000) but still runs very well. It is a Sylvania 27 inch Color TV, Model #SST4272. And which Roku would you recommend. I'm planning on only using it for TV shows and movies. I thank you in advance for helping me.
I wasn't able to pull up a manual on this particular television, but if it doesn't have an HDMI or composite plugs (depending on which model of Roku you purchase), you can, most likely, purchase an RF switch or similar product in order to make it work (or alternately, if you have a receiver with one of these ports, it should work). This link
will show you each of the models. At the bottom of that page, there will be a link for specs (e.g. See Specs) that will tell you which outputs each Roku unit has. If your TV has any of those, it will work without little to no issue.
