Roku Stream

I’m looking to by a Roku Streambar but my tv doesn’t have an optical connection. Will the sound still travel through the HDMI cable?

Re: Roku Stream

When you use any of the apps on the Streambar, there wont be an issue.

If you want sound from your TV/devices connected through the TV, your TV needs to support HDMI-ARC.

As long as it supports ARC and you have ARC/CEC enabled in your TV's settings, you should hear sound from your TV/devices connected to it.
