I'm interested in purchasing the Roku Ultra after using the Fire stick for all my life. One feature that I really like with the Roku Ultra is that it has a headphone jack in the remote. So my question is when you plug in the headphones does it automatically mute your TV or do you have to do it yourself?
It automatically "mutes" your TV (it doesn't really mute the TV, it just stops sending audio to the TV). In case it's not obvious, the "private listening" feature is only for things you watch via your Roku, not for just anything you watch on your TV. You can also use the official Roku app on your phone and use any kind of headphones you can connect to the phone for much the same effect. The app isn't available world-wide in case you're not in the US.
