I just purchased the Roku Express and want to hook it up to my elderly father's Samsung Television so he can see larger versions of photos and other items from my smart phone and tablet. The trouble is he lost his remote control for the tv. Is there still a way to set up the Roku without this remote?

Though I found those little hard to see buttons on the bottom corner of the TV's screen (Menu, volume and channels + and -) I couldn't find anything pertaining to HDMI and didn't know what to do with any of the words on the menu list.

whoopdeedoo wrote:Well, I managed to press on the word "source" and kept pressing it until I found the "let's get started" Roku page showing up on HDMI 4. It listed four different language options with English highlighted. But I couldn't find anything to press after that to select this English option (basically to say yes, I Want English) and move on to the next step. So I threw a tantrum and stopped. Thoughts? Advice? Like you mentioned earlier, all I could see for buttons from left to right were source, menu, plus and minus volume, plus and minus channels, and power.
