Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Do you have a roku express+ model (note the Plus specifically)?

Unfortunately, that roku model is not appropriate for this situation.

The issue here is that you have a very old tv, which predates the hdmi connections of the current model tvs.

Virtually all of the roku devices have only a hdmi connection, so the roku you have is simply not compatible with your television, as it requires a connection port that your sony just doesn't have.

Short of buying a new/updated tv model, your best option is to return that roku to wherever you bought it and instead specifically purchase the roku express PLUS model,

that one, which you can order here: https://amzn.to/2L1z8eW

has the older style red/white/yellow rca connections, which you'd connect to the matching colored red/white/yellow ports on the sony then use the tv/video button on the sony remote to choose the video input mode, and then the roku will work from there.

Best regards,

Nathan

It is imperative that you reply back to me here, on your original question only, please.

Posting new/duplicate questions can cost you more each time and hinders my ability to reply.

I sent you a detailed answer, above.
