My apologies for the delay. The site is not quite instant, but please try to send only a single response and allow me time to receive it and respond back; multiple messages can get lost in the queue and further delayed.

Can you tell me exactly where on the back of the tv the stick is plugged in at?

Also did you plug the roku into the usb port on the tv, or into the electrical outlet?
