Roku3 no audio playing HDHomerun

HDHomerun is working on other devices including Roku Streaming Stick. Roku3 is playing perfectly with Amazon Prime, HBONow, Netflix. But it has no audio when playing HDHomerun.

@timhorton 

Thanks for the post.

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.

Does this clear up the issue you are seeing?

Thanks,
Danny

Setting Audio Mode Dolby Digital allows for the required AC3 audio passthrough for the ATSC standard. Its under system settings.

Malarvi's post was helpful. I had to BOTH disable Stereo in audio settings, AND also set to Dolby. It didn't work until I did both.

Re: Roku3 no audio playing HDHomerun

I already tried all combinations, either setting audio to "Dolby Digital" in combination with "Auto DD" and "Stereo" as well as other audio options PCM, Dolby Digital +, etc.  None of them work. HD Homerun for Roku is the ONLY channel without audio... I do not think we as users should worry about special configurations.... we should be fine selecting "auto" in both of them, and let SiliconDust guys to come up with a decent app that just works. So far, it doesn't (Feb 1st 2021)

Since my original post, I got the impression Roku was not going to spend time to support an older model like Roku 3. I since moved on and got a Fire Stick. Zero issue. I like to "tinker" and Fire Stick gives you more freedom for doing more.

I am using the new SteeamingStick+ and does not work... video is ok, but no audio... unless you are ok reading the closed caption text to figure out what is being said, I do not recommend this app/channel, it is not finished. All other apps/channels work just fine.

Yup, still not working on Roku 3. App removed, playing OTA through Emby instead.

Re: Roku3 no audio playing HDHomerun

It looks like TVs and projectors without the ability to decode Dolby Digital or AC3 audio over HDMI aren't supported:
"To hear audio, you need a TV, AV receiver, or soundbar that can decode Dolby Digital or AC3 audio over HDMI. Most modern TVs can do this, though we’ve noticed a few Samsung TVs cannot."

Disabling BOTH worked for me as well. Thank you.
