That message is simply an HDMI communication failure from the Roku to the TV.

1) Shut the TV off.

2) Disconnect the HDMI cable (or the Roku itself if using a stick) from the TV's HDMI port.

3) Wait 30 seconds and plug the HDMI back into the TV.

4) Power the TV on and attempt to watch a program.

Let me know what happens.

I do not want to deal with you people so please reverse the charges that I got for $25 on my credit card and the $5 I do not want any service. You would have no help to me I will work it out myself. I didn't know that I was going to be charged $25 to talk to you online. This is some scam for sure.
