Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
YES!! That was the issue! It was a mismatch of audio settings between the TV & my Roku Express. A quick change in the audio settings on my Roku to Dolby, and then I went back to the audio track settings while in while in the movie, and had way more options! Thank you!!
Go to the Home page on Roku, find Settings, then go to Audio and change auto-detect to Stereo. Once that is done, you can go to the Disney+ channel, and set the audio track of any of the content that you want to watch. The Disney+ channel is the only channel that has to be set this way. All of the other channels that we stream from are able to auto-detect and make full use of my surround system.
Disney+ can not auto detect audio streams that any of the Roku send out, so you need to go to the Home Screen on the Roku, go to Settings, then Audio, and set the audio to Stereo. Once you do that, the Disney+ app will let you set the audio track, and not have to put up with the narration feature. I have two different Roku devices, and had to do it on both of them. I have asked Disney to fix this issue, as all the other apps that I use can Auto Detect the audio stream, so I just have to change the setting for Disney.
