HDMI mandates HDCP but DVI does not. And then you have to audio which DVI does not have to carry.

Too iffy. But if you want folk to check it out, how about a full model number if not a link to the TV?

And which Roku? There are a few models.

Sorry but let's get past this and find out what models we are trying to hook up. If you want to lose time over DVI arcana, sure, we can do that but without the full model numbers we can't see what you have to work with.

Maybe that TV has a SCART connection

They vaguely look like DVI. Hopefully the OP will see the light and actually pay attention long enough here to post the model number Wink

HDMI to Component or RCA

I think you can use HDMI to Component or RCA.

There is a converter:
Convert HDMI signal into YPbPr (Component-video) and stereo audio

You posted a question w/o providing the all the model numbers. Then, you didn't verify about something that you could have quickly looked up online on your own.

Yeah, *we* are arrogant alright <groan>.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
