I think I might have to buy a TV with internet since I can't find one in the size I need without that. I wonder if I'll have to get a new receiver for it to play sound (tinny speakers on those skinny flat panels), or if I'll even need Roku.
Everything has gotten so complicated with TVs running quasi computer software along with TIVO doing the same....hard to know what to do.
I just plug an mp3 player into the receiver.
I have one of those fancy new TV sets (a Sony). The Internet connection is a pain if you control it through the TV set, might be OK thru an app on a tablet, but I don't have a tablet. I don't find the sound on mine that bad (but don't use it as a music source), but can connect it easily into my 1992 era receiver using the afore-mentioned cable. Yes, there's a headphone out jack on the TV.
Just because the crazy new electronics are available doesn't mean you have to buy/use them.
