I have roku 2 connected to my Sanyo tv via hdmi cable for port 2. I don't see an input choice on my tv through the uverse receiver for hdmi2, only hdmi 1 that my receiver is hooked up to that provides my uverse tv service. What do i need to do? If I disconnect the hdmi cable from the receiver will the tv recognize that and operate the roku? I'm not real up on the technology of this at all. LOL

@lindaw76107 - Post your TV model & I will look up the manual.
If your TV has multiple inputs, it should have a menu to select the input to view. The three methods are -
Use arrows to navigate the menu
click an input button to cycle through the inputs
A button for each input
You should select the input using the TV remote. It is possible that the U-verse remote can do it, but the odds are against you.

@lindaw76107 Has nothing to do w/Uverse STB/DVR, goes directly into your TV input, must use the TV remote to choose the Roku input (TV/Video button).
Please NO SD stretch-o-vision or 480 SD HD Channels
Need Help? PM ATT Uverse Care (all service problems)
ATT Customer Care(billing and all other problems)
Your Results May Vary, In My Humble Opinion
I Call It Like I See It, Simply a U-verse user, nothing more

Thank you mibrnsurg. I thought so. I'll try to find the TV remote. I've used the Uverse remote since purchasing the TV.

Thank you so much! This is resolved.
I could not locate the old tv remote but was able to use the tv controls to do it. With the help of the guide page you showed, I was able to check the hdmi 2 box and it added that port back in. To clarify, I have the Roku hooked up by hdmi cable to port 2 on my tv. The uverse receiver box is hooked up by hdmi cable to port 1 on the tv. When I turn on tv by uverse remote, I push the tv button and tv/video button to change to hdmi 2 and it recognizes the roku immediately. I switch to the roku remote to find the channel/station I want. At the conclusion of my viewing on roku tv, I switch back to the hdmi 1 channel with the uverse remote. Success!!! Thanks so much for your help!

@lindaw76107 - Thanks for reporting success - Always good to hear resolution.
The feature to hide unused inputs is unusual, has great value in day to day use, but adds complexity/cofusion to setup.
Some mfgr's have an auto hiding which helps in generic setup, but gets in the way with automatic startup remotes such as Logitech Harmony.
