Roku Streambar HDMI Audio Output

The Roku Streambar does not send audio output on the HDMI connection.  Roku clearly went out of their way to disable the audio.  Perhaps they did not want to have an audio loop. 

I need to find a way to enable the HDMI audio output from the Streambar to my audio sound system.

Re: Roku Streambar HDMI Audio Output

I'm having this issue as well.  XBOX One works great via HDMI audio on my receiver, but nothing from my new streambar.  Did you ever find a solution?

In addition to have hdmi-arc for audio, you need to refresh the hdmi-cec devices so each recognizes it as cec device.

Interesting.  Refreshing the cec devices fixes audio problems?  That's weird.

Refresh it on the Roku or on the AVR?

Interesting.  I need to tap into the audio to be able to share with a hearing-impaired person.  Roku has not made this option available.  In reviewing other comments within this community, many others have the same issue.  Clearly, they are not thinking inclusively.

I am having the same issue: a hearing impaired person needs noise canceling headphones to enjoy TV.  I have a device which will take HDMI signal, pass it thru to HDMI output AND transmit the audio to a paired Bluetooth receiver (like headphones).  This works fine with Roku Premier, but apparently the 9102X doesn’t output audio, because the headphones are silent.  

I guess the only option is to replace the 9102X with the premier and use the TV audio for the room.
