If you ever want to connect and mirror the screen of your Android device to your TV, you can do it via the Roku 4, 3, or Streaming Stick using these steps.
One of my favorite features is the ability to enable Netflix to auto-play the next episode when a a TV show episode finishes. It’s great for people who have unlimited Internet access, but if you have a limit, or fall asleep to watching Netflix shows, you may not want episodes playing all night. Here’s how to turn the “Play next episode automatically” feature on or off.
Watching a virtual reality video is easier now more than ever. You can just use your Android device along with Google’s “Cardboard” technology and you’re ready to be immersed into a VR world. Here’s how to get started.
So you want to bring your Roku along so you can sit back in that nice hotel bed and stream some shows.

If you are using Google Chrome to watch a show on Netflix and receive error that says “Whoops,. something went wrong… Missing Component. Error code M7357-1003“, give these steps a try to fix the issue.
Not all of us have upgraded to an HDTV. Some of us are still getting some value from their old Analog CRT televisions. I’ve seen many still in use in schools and corporate offices. With the right equipment, you can still use many modern devices with an analog CRT including Chromecast. If you wish to get Chromecast up and running with a non-HD television, here’s how it’s done.
Back in January, I wrote about how the Roku streaming video player can make older analog TVs useful. I have a 17″ Sony in my bedroom that can display a 480i picture, and that’s fine enough for me. Since the Roku 1 can connect to older analog CRT TV sets, I currently run a Roku 1 on that TV and enjoy it immensely.
Now the Roku 3 and 4 has been released with support for connections via HDMI only. If you were planning on using the Roku 3 with an analog TV, this news is a bummer. You still have an option though. With these steps, you can connect the Roku 4 or 3 to an analog TV.
With all the talk about “House of Cards”, “Orange is the New Black”, and other Netflix original shows, “Lilyhammer” was one that slipped under the radar. It has gained a lot of buzz though, now in its third season.
