Hey guys so I have a TCL 4k TV with roku built in (4 series). I usually screen mirror my PC via miracast to the TV and watch my shows. When I am not using private listening and the audio is coming from the TV speakers it is 99 percent of the time flawless, maybe some small lag occasionally but I chalk it up to the connection. This also used to be the case when using private listening but in the past few weeks I have been getting continuous popping/crackling in the audio when I am using private listening. It is really irritating and if someone could help me figure out a fix I would appreciate it.
Btw, the private listening is through my iPhone 8 which I use the regular apple earbuds with it (Not airpods). I don't think it is a problem with the earbuds because when I am not using private listening and just watching videos/music on my phone with the earbuds in there is zero problem.
Thanks for reaching out here. A few more questions:
- Do you experience the popping/crackling behavior when using private listening on standard streaming channels installed on your TCL Roku TV? - Does this happen when playing specific content from your PC, or does it happen across any media that you play? - Do you happen to recall specifically when you first noticed this issue occurring?
Thanks for the extra details. Is your home network configured to transmit a 2.4GHz or 5GHz Wi-Fi network?
I'd recommend making sure your router is configured to transmit a 5GHz network, and/or try changing the wireless broadcast channel on your router if it is already transmitting a 5GHz network. Your ISP or router manufacturer can assist you in making those changes.
