Hi - I have a Roku Express 4K + model 3941 running Software 10.0.1 Build 4180-CR (Latest?)
It is connected to my local wireless network and then to my TV via HDMI. Both audio and video work fine with all the channel Icons displayed on the Roku home screen.
I also have an HD Homerun Extend - Model HDTC-2US-M
I want to get rid of cable and was delighted to see that Roku had added an HD Homerun channel to its mix which allows me to run the app on my smart TV - Samsung UN55ES6150 running software T-MST10PAUSC - 2006.0 (latest?)
When I use the HD app via Roku, the picture comes in great but there is no audio. I have tried various combinations of audio options on the Roku but have not succeeded in getting audio.
Now from the Internet, I have gleaned that there is a problem with some Samsung TVs using Roku and the HD homerun. app.
"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. All Roku televisions should be able to play audio without any trouble."
Knowing this, I might be willing to purchase a soundbar, to address this. Would this solve this problem?
I am not a real techie so if a soundbar is an option, what would I be looking for and how would this be hooked up to the TV?
My Samsung TV has 3 HDMI ports. One is connecting the TV to the Roku,
