How to Change the Display Type on your Roku Device


One of the big advantages with Roku is the variety of display types it offers, from crystal clear 720p to 4K UHD resolution. It provides more vivid and realistic pictures than most other platforms.

Follow these Steps to Learn How to Change the Display type on your Roku Device

Step - 1
Start by Pressing the ‘Home’ button. This will bring up Roku’s Home screen on your TV.

Step - 2
Choose the 'Settings' Option. When you choose the 'Settings' option, a list of further categories will appear. Instead of clicking on them, click on the arrow in the top left corner to see another set of options.

Step - 3
Choose the 'Display' Option. With these new set of options, choose the ‘Display type’ tab and click ‘OK’.

Step - 4
Make your Choice of 'Display Type'. The list of display resolutions will come up. You can choose the one that matches your TV’s capability if you know it, or click ‘Auto detect’ to have Roku automatically choose the highest resolution your TV can manage.
Your internet speed also plays a part. If your connection is not strong, your Roku will not be able to get the best out of your TV. Picture quality depends on your internet being fast enough to support HD output.

Things to Remember

● It’s not just your Roku device that matters. Your TV has to support these high-definition choices for you to enjoy them.
● Not all channels will have content available in 1080p, so even if you have chosen that as your display type you may have to be content with 720p.
● High-definition coverage depends on sufficient internet speed. If your connection is weak, the quality may be lower.

Following these steps will ensure you get the best picture quality available.
