Roku Soundbar and 2 Wireless Speakers Not Playing Audio Simultaneously

I have a Roku Soundbar that is connected to my LG TV via an HDMI connection. Someone bought me two Roku wireless speakers so I could add surround sound to my viewing experience. After connecting both speakers to my Roku Soundbar, I just realized that whenever I watch something, the audio is only playing from the two speakers and no longer plays on the streambar.

I don't really see the point in using the 2 wireless speakers or buying them if they can't all play simultaneously with the soundbar.

Has anyone encountered this problem and resolved it? Solutions would be very much appreciated!

@Mr_Robot

Thanks for the post.

Can you please specify the issue you are experiencing? Are you no longer hearing any audio from the Soundbar, or do you still hear some audio? Have you tried repairing the Roku wireless speakers to see if that resolves the issue?

Please keep us posted and we will be able to assist you further.

 

Thanks,
Danny

Re: Roku Soundbar and 2 Wireless Speakers Not Playing Audio Simultaneously

I am not hearing any audio out of the soundbar, only the two Roku wireless speakers. This only happens when I am using certain Roku apps like YouTube, Rumble, or other news applications. Is this normal? I assumed I could always use all three speakers for sound, regardless of what application I am using. Is there a way I can make sure I am always hearing sound from all 3 speakers?

The speakers and the sound bar don't play at the same time it's either one or the other. I tire everything I researched nothing worked so I just returned the product.
