Wireless speakers and soundbar

I have added 2 front wireless speakers to my roku system.  I now have, soundbar, sub, 2 front and 2 rear.  My question is that now it seems there is no sound coming from the soundbar.  Am I crazy? Anyone else have this?  Thank you all.

Re: Wireless speakers and soundbar

I just noticed the same issue with my system.  My sub / two front and two rear all work but there is no sound coming from the sound bar now.

Thanks for the post.

Have you made sure to pair the Roku Wireless Speakers to the Soundbar so that the Soundbar is the host device?

In addition, we would recommend taking a look at the information provided by our Support page here: Set up your wireless speakers

Please keep us posted what you find out and we will be able to assist you further.


Thanks,
Danny

Re: Wireless speakers and soundbar

When I unplug the front 2 wireless speakers.. then the sound comes out of the soundbar.  I plug back in the front wireless speakers and it basically takes over the soundbar speakers.  I purchased these to add to my surround, not to take place of the soundbar.  Any help here?  I have a roku soundbar, sub, 2 rear wireless and 2 front wireless.

Re: Wireless speakers and soundbar

i have sound bar, two front, two rear and sub.  You will only hear the soundbar getting used when watching a show in 5.1 surround sound.  Otherwise most tv will be played in what’s called (surround stereo) which uses everything except the center speaker (sound bar).  You can test this out by playing a movie on Netflix or Disney that says it’s 5.1 surround.  You will then hear the soundbar playing as a center speaker.

Re: Wireless speakers and soundbar

I was expecting wireless speakers and sound bar to always play. Kind of deceiving that this was never mentioned. Somewhat disappointed as I bought speakers to enhance the sound bar.😔
