HDCP Error with Roku Soundbar

Within the second day of installing the Roku soundbar we started getting the HDCP Error message. I followed the instructions to properly install the soundbar. I used all the cables that came with the soundbar. I followed the steps to fix the issue, but only seems to be a temporary fix, because the error message will return a few days later. I just recently changed the HDMI cable to one that I previously had. Seemed to be working fine and then the error message came up again. This never happened with any of our previous Roku devices, which were Roku Premier devices. Is anybody experiencing this issue with their Soundbar. I am on the verge of returning it.

Re: HDCP Error with Roku Soundbar

@mcolato  Thanks for reaching out to let us know about the issue you're running into. I'd like to help gather some additional information to help investigate here: 

- Have you tried connecting the Soundbar to a different HDMI port on your TV? 

- When exactly does the error appear? Is it while you're playing content, when a commercial plays, when you are navigating inside a channel or on the Roku home screen? 

- If this happens during playback, what streaming channel are you watching when you observe this error on screen? Could you provide an example content title (movie/TV show) as well?

- What brand & specific model number is the TV that your Soundbar is connected to? 

With more information, I'd be happy to continue looking into this with you, and seeing what other troubleshooting we can provide. 

 

Thanks,

Tanner

Re: HDCP Error with Roku Soundbar

I have the same issue, I'm using the HDMI cable that came with the Soundbar. Restarting the Roku fixes the issue, but it keeps randomly coming back...

@TimJohnston  

Thanks for letting us know what you are seeing. A few more questions here: 

- What specific make/model of TV is your Roku Smart Soundbar connected to?

- What channel are you watching when this occurs?

- What is a content title example that you have observed this error on while watching? 

We'd like to help take a closer look here, and see how else we can assist. 

 

Thanks,

Tanner

Re: HDCP Error with Roku Soundbar

@TimJohnston Yeah my wife does all the steps to fix it as well and it will work for the meantime and it will come back the next day. It is already packaged and returning it. The way our entertainment center is set up it is too much for my wife to have to move the tv to get to the cables. We rather not deal with it.

Re: HDCP Error with Roku Soundbar

@mcolato - you can just go into the System Menu and Restart the sound bar and it "fixes" the problem - no need to switch cables around or move the TV (at least in my experience)...

@TimJohnston We tried that in the beginning before researching anything and it didn't work for us.

Re: HDCP Error with Roku Soundbar


- What specific make/model of TV is your Roku Smart Soundbar connected to?

Its a Samsung 60 inch (not sure of the model and I'm not pulling it off the wall to find out), but I did have to use the optical port as it doesn't support ARC.

- What channel are you watching when this occurs?

I've seen it happen on VUDU and Amazon Prime video

- What is a content title example that you have observed this error on while watching? 

I tried 3 or 4 and they all exhibited the problem, after a restart of the soundbar the exact titles played fine.

We'd like to help take a closer look here, and see how else we can assist. 

 

Thanks,

Tanner
