I have an old TV, not even sure what the brand is. It works fine with Google Chrome and when I connect my laptop to it via an HDMI cable, but when I use my Roku Express, I get no sound. The video works fine, but I get zero sound. It's not the Roku unit because it works fine on the other TVs in my house.
I was wondering if a Roku Streambar might solve this problem? If I understand how the Streambar works correctly, the sound doesn't go through the TV hardware at all; it is straight from the streaming media to the Streambar's own speakers. This means that the deficiencies in my TV's sound hardware shouldn't matter, right?
