Roku TCL TV Update and Soundbar Shenanigans

2 bhk in ghatkopar issues to this update. I have a Yamaha YAS 108 Soundbar and when I first turn on my TCL 55R617, I frequently don't have any sound that comes out of my soundbar. I have to turn off my TV and back on, sometimes twice before I get sound from the soundbar. prabhadevi apartment mumbai[/font][/color]

Re: Roku TCL TV Update and Soundbar Shenanigans


Thanks for the note here. A couple questions to help better understand what you're experiencing: 

- Do you have Fast TV Start enabled in the Settings>System>Power menu? 
- Is your soundbar connected to the HDMI-ARC capable HDMI port on your TV? 
- Have you tried replacing the HDMI cable connected the soundbar to the TV yet?
