I recently purchased the Tablo with 2 tuners. It’s worked pretty well so far. We’ve been using to watch tv through our Roku 3. Here’s my problem: I was recently given a small television which I’m using in my small studio space in the house. The tv does not have an HDMI output, so I ended up purchasing a Roku 2 which can connect with RCA cables.
Update: I switched off the Tablo app on the Roku 3 and then tried to watch something on the Roku 2.
It’s something to do with the composite outputs. I don’t think it is supported because that old Roku doesn’t support HD content (I think).
My guess is just like the Roku XS/XD line if you want to go through composite out you have to “trick” your Roku 2.
In order to do this, you will need a HDMI TV/monitor though.
Connect the Roku 2 to the HDMI set… and configure it for 720p… then unplug the Roku 2. Then while unplugged, disconnect the HDMI and connect up the composite cable and plug it back in. Thus the Roku 2 will think you have a 720p HDMI output, but it will likely send stuff out through the composite jacks (I have a Roku XD and that’s how I made mine work).
Maybe you can borrow an HDMI device from a neighbor in order to perform this “trick”?
Thanks for your help, though! I really appreciate it!
