[OS 12.0] Recent update broke Game Mode on Roku TV

It seems like a recent update has broken game mode, I have tried multiple HDMI cables and four different consoles including an Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PS5, this issue is present with all of them. When game mode is enabled there is constant visual stuttering which is pretty aggressive, but audio doesn’t stutter or cut out at all. The only solution is to disable game mode. Please fix.

TV model is Sanyo FE40R49FC

Hardware ID is 8638X

Software version is 12.0.0 build 4181-AK

Same issue here. Unbearable video stuttering through HDMI with Game Mode enabled. Started about a week ago.

It seems that people described something similar years ago: https://community.roku.com/t5/Discussions/Game-mode-stuttering-on-with-10-0-update/m-p/680533

Re: [OS 12.0] Recent update broke Game Mode on Roku TV

  • Issue ID: 53-187-641
  • Timestamp: 2023-05-11T07:21:10Z
  • Device: YK00VW235053 (JAA93V235053)

This occurs whenever I'm using the HDMI port (playing Xbox) with Game Mode enabled (TV settings, Picture settings, Advanced settings, Game mode, On).

Every ten seconds or so, the image seems to judder, stutter, or lag, replaying and dropping several frames. The video isn't smooth.

I first noticed this issue around April 29. This setup has always worked fine before that.

Please let me know if this information is sufficient. Thanks!

This occurs no matter what content is displayed from the Xbox. All games, video streaming apps, and in its dashboard. Whenever the TV’s game mode is enabled.

I assume it would be the same for any other HDMI device, as @ArcadePizza experienced.

@RokuMary-F 

 

Serial Number - YK00C4465279

Device ID - 096000C465279

The only thing needed to reproduce the issue is to turn on game mode and watch or play something.

 

It happens regardless of which game I’m playing, it was every single game that I tried, on every game console I tried as mentioned in my original post, but it’s not only that as someone else mentioned, I also recently discovered that it happens regardless of what you’re doing on the television, video streaming, watching an MP4 video using the roku media player, cable television, etc. it stutters just the same when game mode is enabled.
