OK, so your options are limited with the equipment you currently have. There are HDMI converters but price-wise are on par with a Roku.

One recommendation is to return the Roku 3 and purchase a Roku 2 XS. It is a capable previous generation model and offers HDMI and analog audio outputs which should work with your existing AVR.

Another option is to upgrade your AVR to include multiple HDMI inputs, which even the budget models do these days.

HDMI (digital to analog) converters. Anyone tried one with an older Slingbox Pro (# SB 200-100), my Slingbox only has S-video and RCA inputs.


I know I could buy a Roku 2 but think a converter box may be a good option.

Ideas? Work arounds?


Thx!

I found this unit and wonder if something like this may work?

Anyone tried something like this?

Yes. I would have kept my Roku 3 if that WiFi direct did not broadcast on the same channel as my 2.4ghz network. When it was on 5ghz on channel 165 it was not a issue but now it just follows whatever channel you have your router on which is pathetic considering that I was using it wired.

I got a Fire TV Stick and was signally unimpressed; if it'd provided 24Hz output for 24p sources I might have kept it hooked up but I played with it for a couple of hours, got bored and put it back in its box. It doesn't do anything that I want to do particularly better than things that I already have. I got it during the sale that was on for the first days after it launched when it was $20 for Prime members so no big loss. It might come in handy sometime.

By which you mean...? That I should use it because it was cheap? I wouldn't use it if it'd been free. I only ever use a hand full of streaming services; principally Netflix, Amazon, VUDU and Hulu Plus. I have a boatload of things attached to this system with which to stream all of those. (I generally only use my TiVo for those now since it can output their 24p content at 24Hz which my television can display with even pulldown and no added judder). I only bought it because I was curious and it was $20 . I satisfied my curiosity; I may put it on another system someday.
