No audio on you tube or you tube TV

I replaced my receiver with an Onkyo NR 6100. After much consultation with Onkyo we finally got everything working with an e-arc cable to my e-arc compatible LG TV.  Everything worked.  Then later on I could not get any audio on you tube or you tube TV.  Every thing on the Roku home screen works fine but when I change to you tube or you tube TV no audio.  I am using the roku ultra.  I reset it a few times to no avail. The only thing I can guess is that during all the switching and  messing around to get the e-arc, the new receiver and the roku device, and the TV to play well together, something failed in the roku device.  I am stumped and I want to be sure before I shell out$99 for a new one.  Any ideas?
