If you ever want to cast the screen of your Android device to your TV, you can do it via the Roku Premier, 4, 3, or Streaming Stick using these steps.
This weekend I sat down to watch “Argo” using the Amazon Prime Video app on the Roku box. When I attempted to purchase and watch the movie on Amazon Instant, it threw an error on the screen. I could still hear the audio, but the blue and white error that said “HDCP unauthorised. Content disabled” error took up the entire screen.
Has your Amazon Fire TV device become frozen and is not responding to the remote? Sometimes the software just locks up right in the middle of using it. You can usually resolve the issue by resetting the device using these steps.
If you have an older CRT Television that without an HDMI connection, you can still use the Amazon Fire TV device with it. All you need is an adapter. Use these steps to connect a Fire TV Stick or box to an old analog CRT TV.
Netflix has a rather annoying feature where a video preview of your selection will play whenever you make a selection. Fortunately, Netflix added a setting that allows you to enable or disable this setting.
My wife and I recently decided to break out the old SNES system and connect it to our new smart TV. We ran into an issue though when we found it only had HDMI ports. The SNES adapter has the 3RCA connectors.
I was happy to find out that there is an adapter you can purchase that will allow you to connect your SNES to an HDMI port. I will share the instructions in this post.
The HDMI-CEC feature on your television allows virtually any remote control to communicate directly with devices that attack to the HDMI port on your TV. It can allow you to use a remote with streaming boxes like the Roku or Chromecast.
Enabling HDMI-CEC on your TV can be confusing because manufacturers call the feature different names. You may have to check the documentation provided with your TV to see if it supports HDMI-CEC. If it does, these steps should turn the feature on.
A common problem may occur with the Amazon Fire TV Stick where it throws an error when you’re trying to stream video that says:
“Home is Currently Unavailable – We are unable to connect to Amazon services. Please Check your Internet connection or try again later.”
It then provide a button to “Go to Network Settings“.
Use these steps to fix the problem.
