Anyone got a Roku 2 HD? What about with a Vizio TV?
First, a Happy New Year to all!
My girlfriend got a Roku 2 HD just before Christmas & has a Vizio 37" 1080P HDTV (don't have exact model). The Roku has v4.2 build 1006 firmware.
Her daughter set up the Roku via an HDMI cable & it was working fine. Then about halfway through a Netflix movie, the screen went black. Then rebooting the Roku showed the bouncing Roku before going to a black screen.
I did a factory reset & still no joy via the HDMI cable, though I got it to fly with the composite cable, after which HDMI worked, until I set the Roku to use 720P, then back to the black screen. I can use the composite cable to switch back to 16:9 and it works with the HDMI again.
Is this expected behavior? The TV should be able to display the 720P signal, right? Or maybe the Roku box isn't working the way it is supposed to. (This is my first experience with a Roku and we haven't tried any other TVs or HDMI cables.)
Any help is appreciated.
