How do I add a Roku Streaming device to my existing Cox TV service?
I recently bought a Roku Movie/video streaming device and had a difficult time getting it to recognize my Cox cable TV service Mini box. I couldn't get a signal on my TV at all when I hooked up the Roku with the Cox mini box still hooked up. The mini box was hooked up to the HDMI-1 port & the Roku to HDMI-2 port. With both devices hooked up I wasn't getting a video signal at all. I tried hooking up just the Roku device to the HDMI-1 port without the Cox mini box and still couldn't get a signal. I left the Roku hooked to the HDMI-1 port and re-hooked the Cox mini box to the HDMI-2 port and finally got a picture on the TV. Now the system doesn't recognize that I already have a Cox TV service subscription and Netflix. I also have 3 other Roku devices in my home on other TV sets. You can have 2 Roku devices with 1 Netflix account. We have 2 Roku devices on my Netflix account but one of my house mates only has 1 Roku device linked to her Netflix account. I finally got my new Roku device (a Roku Express) to link to my house mate's Netflix account to watch Netflix movies without a temporary trial version of Netflix. Now I have to figure out how to get the Roku Express to recognize my Cox TV service. Any ideas on that anyone?
