First, you would plug the Roku into the first unused HDMI port on the TV (HDMI 1 or 2- whichever is available). Next you will connect USB power to the Roku using the included AC wall adapter. Third, you will use the Samsung remote and access the "Source" MENU and select HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 respectively. Then you will see the Roku letters appear on your TV screen and you will follow the on-screen prompts to finish setting up the Roku.

You can also view the steps below to see pictures of how it's setup. The link outlines the procedure for the Roku stick, but the steps are the same for any of the Roku boxes as well:
