Setup the Roku device
Roku device setup starts with unboxing the device. After you open the device’s packaging, please make sure that you have the device, remote, the HDMI cable (not for streaming sticks) and any other accessory if promised.
Setup your Roku device once you have all the needy things, go ahead and connect the device to your TV. To do this, if you are using a streaming stick, please go ahead and plug in the device directly on to an HDMI port on your TV. If it is a Roku model, other than Streaming Sticks, go ahead connect your Roku to your TV with the high-speed HDMI cable that came with the box.
Please don’t connect it to a hub, and then to the TV. Do no use any other cable. Only use the cable provided with Roku, and only connect it directly to Roku. It is true that the connection will still work if you use a hub or another cable, but it is always advisable to use the product adhering the guidance from go.roku.com/selectinput.
Go.Roku.com/selectinput to Select the Roku TV Input
The next step is obviously what you were looking for. The go.roku.com/selectinput. You can go to your TV, and in the Roku.com/selectinput, you select your HDMI cable. This is because your Roku is connected to your HDMI port. If you have more than one HDMI port, then choose the one that your device is connected to.
After you choose the input as HDMI, and only after you do that can you see Roku settings and home page on your TV screen. You can go ahead with the regular installation and setup process after you specify the input using go.roku.com/selectinput.
