It did not come with the composite cable and so I went to Fry's and grabbed one. It didn't work, and a little bit of googling seems to indicate that there is something proprietary about the Roku composite 3.5mm plug, so I ordered a cable off of Ebay that is supposedly specifically for Roku; and it does not work either.
So they either sent me the wrong cable or there is something wrong with this Roku. I think the cable is wrong because:
1) The Roku works with an old 3.5mm-to-composite cable I have from a digital camera if I jiggle it right (this cable is mono audio or I would just use it)
2) The 3.5mm plug on the cable I got off Ebay matches the generic one I got at Fry's
Does anyone know what is proprietary about the Roku composite plug and/or where I can find a close-up picture of it?
Well, you can see a picture of it here
, but I'm not certain it'll give you what you need.
