Either Roku or Sony or both have done a poor job implementing HDCP causing the incompatibility is my guess. Fortunately those issues are very rare now but 7 years ago were more common.

An HDMI to component converter that works properly is a nice thing to have anyway but is an expensive way to connect a Roku.
Since my Sony is 8 years old, I can't blame Roku.

My solution still stands as a viable HD workaround.
