TCL Roku TV: How to Change Inputs

The TCL Roku TV interface is a bit different from other televisions you might use. Most people are used to an “Input” button on their remote for switching inputs. With the TCL Roku TV, things are a bit different.

To change inputs on the TCL Roku TV, follow these steps using the remote.

  1. From the Home screen, press the left arrow to show the menu, then select “Settings” on the left pane.

  3. A menu will appear to the right where you can choose the desired input (HDMI 1, HDMI 2, Live TV, etc.)

Note: I have been made aware that some models only have an option for “Home” or “Last used TV input”. I don’t believe there is a way to upgrade your TV to have the other options.
