Sound system

I have a Phillips 4K tv and use Roku Premier. Also have a Vizio sound system with bar, woofer and 2 speakers. 

Sometimes the woofer and speakers don’t join up with the rest on Roku apps like Hulu Live. 

Any suggestions for Roku audio settings that anyone recommends?

 

Thanks

Re: Sound system

Roku remotes only control tv's, its up to the Tv to control the Audio device via hdmi-cec. Go in to the menu of the tv refresh the cec devices, it might be called something else depending on the brand of tv. The sound bar needs to be connected to audio out on the tv, these include the hdmi-ARC, or Optical output.

Re: Sound system

Thanks for the reply. 

Yeah I have my sound system set up on HDMI Arc and have the tv audio settings off because that’s what the instructions said to do.

Just didn’t know in term of Dolby Digital, etc settings on the Roku Premier audio settings I should use. 

Thanks again.
