Roku Soundbar and Headphones

I have two questions about headphone use for the new Roku Soundbar:

1. Can you play sound over the soundbar and the headphone jack on the remote simultaneously? I have a family member who is hard of hearing and needs to be able to use headphones without affecting everyone else's ability to hear.

2. Do the headphones work for any audio playing through the soundbar (i.e. for what is being watched on cable or a blu-ray player), or only for content being played through Roku apps?

Re: Roku Soundbar and Headphones

Thanks for the questions! 

1. These functions are not simultaneously supported. You can choose to either use Private Listening or play audio through the TV's speakers, but both do not function at the same time. 

2. Private listening is only supported for content playback from streaming channels. It is not supported for other sources. 

We appreciate the interest and feedback here. Please feel free to visit our 'Suggest a feature' section of the Community to share any requests for future consideration! 

 

Thanks!
