Subsequent to my post a few minutes ago, using AXS app, Captions did not show up on the initial show even though captions were turned on when I checked with asterisk button. After that show played and the new show started, they were on. If you turn off before exiting the app, then the captions mode in the Roku settings it is off. If you don’t turn it off in the app, then their captions are checked is always on in the Roku settings caption mode. Again, why Roku’s caption mode should be affected by individual apps is an obvious problem.
it is roku software issue how to fix find an r rated movie it does not matter as long as it is r rated set the subtitles to off play movie for 10 minutes restart roku problem fixed this is what i was told by a roku teck 4 years ago and i had to do this again 4 months ago and it still worked for me then this issue has been going on for about 4 or 5 years dont know why they have not fixed it yet i posted this a few times and people should be passing this around but i never see it
This is happening since around february 2022 on both of my TCL 4 Series and TCL 6 Series Roku TV. I'm not using a channel, the TV is set to open on live TV and subtitles get turn on randomly. It's annoying.
This thread goes back over 2 years and still there is no fix. The suggested fixes are nonsense and try to place blame on apps. The only apps installed on my device, literally cannot be removed. They are the default apps required by roku to operate. You know things like live tv, roku streaming channels, roku tv store, etc. There is no "uninstall the apps" and a factory reset... does nothing but cause the problem to continue.
And yes, even the "watch a rated R" suggestion doesn't work... despite the comment claiming it does... if it didn't... they wouldn't have had to do it multiple times over the life of their device and by their own claim, they have had to do it more than 1 time.
So how about roku fix this annoying bug instead of blaming other apps or the user. Its clearly an issue in the app. roku app - not 3rd party apps. Even if reset worked.... thats not the fix as it keeps happening and keeps needing to be reset. That is not a solution its a band aide.
