How about watching sports on roku.com on my computer, and streaming music on my rokutv via Pandora?

You could certainly watch any of the content available on https://therokuchannel.roku.com/ on your computer, and separately listen to music via the Pandora channel on your Roku TV. 

 

Thanks,

I think you'd be better off with the opposite. Stream Pandora on your computer and use the TV as designed for watching the show.

Ah, copy that. But as mentioned, Roku devices cannot multi-task. So you can't leave an audio channel running and switch to something else for the video. You'll have to use different devices in some configuration for what you want to do.

I sometimes listen to classical music on my FM radio while watching sports with the volume muted on TV.

Agreed! That is one thing I miss with my old Samsung Soundbar. I enjoyed listening to music while watching a game. That is a minus for me with the new Roku Soundbar / Roku TV.
