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.
I just bought the Roku Ultra and I am having this issue on my LG CX tv.
I need to have the Roku on any of the Dolby Audio settings. I can't have it on Auto or PCM.
The strange part is that the setting somehow saves to the HDMI port.
For example, Roku is on HDMI 1 with auto settings. Youtube audio stutters. If I connect a nintendo to HDMI 1 then the audio will stutter too. So I change the audio on the Roku to any Dolby setting and I no longer experience the stutter on the roku or on the nintendo.
but this leads to another issue. If I have the Roku audio on a Dolby setting then I have issues with video. Sometimes I pause a video but the audio keeps going. I have a video of this that I can share if it'll help.
I hope there is an easy fix for this. I'm a big roku fan (I have 2 streaming sticks and now the ultra)
I have the same problem. This is not limited to LG tvs. I have a Roku ultra and a Sony TV. I have uninstalled the youtube app an applied all updates for roku and reinstalled the youtube tv app. I get crackling audio any time I play a recorded show or a youtube video through the youtube tv app. It even started messing up the hbo channel on youtube tv. Please don't limit your troubleshooting to just LG tvs. This is a problem with Roku on many different devices and it has been a problem for over a year.
I have exactly the same issue. Began yesterday. Rebooting Roku does nothing; turning Samsung TV off and on does nothing to help. Same recordings done through the Samsung built-in web access exhibits NO audio problems on the same YouTube recordings that the Roku messes up.
Try removing the channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the channel back once more, specifically in that order.
Does this clear up the issue you are seeing? Please keep us posted.
