Roku Soundbar unable to play sound with four wireless speakers attached

Jump to solution

Anyone figured this out? Set up states you can't connect both at the same time if this is true why are they stating that with the new 10.5 update you're capable of true 5.1 surround as this is not the case.

Okay I figured it out bro. Dude was wrong. You have to pair the soundbar to the TV then you have to go to the soundbars menu and pair all five speakers (sub included to it) you can pair all of them to the TV the center channel just won't emit sound.

Wow, I was ready to do this. So you have 2 pairs of satellites and no sound? It’s supposed to work now.

Yes I have four satellites the sub woofer the og soundbar and a roku TV. Four speakers will work the soundbar will function as a roku device just not a center channel. Posting so hopefully someone who works there says something. Factory resetting does nothing.

The two pairs of wireless speakers can't be paired to single roku device, you can pair one set to roku tv to act as mains, then you can pair a second set to either roku soundbar, streambar, or streambar pro to act as rears.

Yes they actually can as I have paired them all to my TV roku. What you cant do is pair them all including the soundboard at the same time which given they have stated you can is massively misleading.

That’s not how they promote this. Hopefully they made a video soon.

So the Center soundbar doesn’t emit sound? Shouldn’t that be the center channel?
