The Roku TV provides a good mix of settings that are specifically for the television that you have and the Roku software that you use to control that TV. But, if this is the first time you have used Roku TV, then it’s probably a little different than the standard way of navigating TV menu controls to which you have previously become accustomed.
Fortunately you are able to control most of these settings, it’s just done through the Roku menu. Our tutorial below will show you how to adjust the brightness on your Roku TV if you find that it is either too dim or too bright.
Other set top streaming devices like the Amazon Fire Tv have settings you can change as well. Our Firestick screensaver guide can show you how to change or remove the screensaver, for example.

Step 1: Select Settings from the left menu.
Step 2: Scroll down and choose the TV picture settings option.
Step 3: Select the TV brightness option.
Step 4: Choose the brightness option that you want to use for your TV.
