If you received a $26 phone offer or any offers they are automated by the website ,NOT BY ME and WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE , I`m an independent tech. and have NO CONTROL over those, they are optional and you can just ignore them if you don`t want it .

NO ALL ARE 1080p BUT ROKU JUST SWITCHED TO 720p AND THERE DOES NOT SEEM TO BE ANY WAY TO GET BACK TO 1080p.

This is not the tv doing this , it is your roku box or is it a stick ?

Hello, my name is Rusty. The Roku menus are all on 720p by default, there is no way to change that. Play content that is in 1080p, and see if you get the better resolution.

The only thing that can really go bad is the HDMI cable. Replace the HDMI cable with a different high speed cable, so that it will support 1080p. The resolution is dependent on the resolution of the program you are trying to view. Not all of them are in 1080p. Since your other components are working in 1080p with your TV, there is not a problem with your TV.

Let me know what happens. When we are finished, please rate 3-5 stars. If you have any questions, please reply.

Rusty:
We had watched 28 episodes of a show and this started on episode 29 so it seems something is wrong.

Go back to episode 28, does it show in 1080p?

Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
all roku shows are 720p now

Ok, I want you to switch out your HDMI cable. Sometimes they can get a spec of dust on them, causing them not to communicate between devices. If that doesn't help, reset your Roku box by unplugging, and holding the reset button with a sharp object for a full 30 seconds, then see if your programs come in at 1080p.

Tried new cable and reset but nothing worked. The streaming display is stuck in a "zoomed in" aspect even though regular tv is 1080p HD. I guess time to upgrade the Roku.
