Same issue here since the latest update on Oct 12 for me. Everything is broken. Channels will pause video but continue audio. My remote does not work, specifically the volume controls. My Roku crashed and told me to plug it into a wall outlet, but it is plugged DIRECTLY into a wall outlet. I have issues with Peacock, Paramount, Hulu, etc. Have removed the apps, restarted and reinstalled them. Video pauses still and only audio plays.

First it was the constant HDCP errors, now I have even more issues and errors. Does anyone on the dev team even test these updates before launching them live??? This is ridiculous!!!
After seven days and 94 factory resets I finally got the device to reboot at which point the device downloaded and installed 9 different upgrades starting back in version 9.x.
I still have not been able to successfully complete the initial setup of the device. It keeps resetting back to defaults after I enter my email address which means the device is not associated with my account yet.
Here is the info you requested.
"-does this issue occur on a specific channel?" - NO, it occurs on EVERY channel.
Also, as an update to my previous post, I tried to watch Peacock again today and the video was still pausing while audio was playing. Removing the app, restarting, and adding the app back did nothing. Also logged out and back in to Peacock. Still did it. So....I unplugged the HDMI cable and plugged it back in. The video and audio worked fine. Apparently, the HDCP error issue is still going on; however, there is no HDCP error message that pops up now. Now I have to get up and unplug the Roku HDMI and plug it back in for the channel to work. This process has to be repeated everytime I watch Peacock so far. Before, I was able to turn off the auto sleep (or whatever its called) to solve this issue but apparently this no longer works now.
We would recommend checking for a manual update to receive the latest Roku OS version. You can check for an OS update through Settings > System > System update.
Once your device has been updated to the latest OS 11.5 build, we would recommend checking to see if the experiencing the same playback issue.
If you are still experiencing an issue, can you please provide us with the current OS version and build your Roku device is running, along with a current Tracker ID after updating the OS (when you see this issue occur, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times and provide us with this ID).
I did last night do a factory reset and it seems to be working and the version is 11.5 so I guess it updated during the reset. I have not manually checked for updates since the reset but I need it to work for now and not going to check.
