Update. This used to only happen on 1 Roku soundbar. I returned that and now have 3 of the 4k sticks. Pleased with the performance BUT since an update all of them now have the sync issue in the Xfinity Stream app. I have narrowed it down to it happens when live tv goes to a commercial. It then gets out of video/audio sync. Only way to restore it is to exit and go back in.
I noticed an occasional stutter in the video and the audio does not. This appears to be the moment it goes out of sync. The more it happens the further out of sync it gets. To reset you have to back out of the channel and reselect it. Happens multiple times per hour. This is an app specific issue the developer must fix. Good luck with that since they are probably associated with Comcast. They probably think we are just lucky enough not to have to use their equipment regardless of it's performance.
Xfinity Stream audio extremely unstable. Goes from normal to nothing or loud & garbled.
SW version 11.5.0 build 4312-50
In the Xfinity Stream app version 6.11 build 0 the sound fluctuates from nothing or loud & garbled. I have various Roku stick models throughout the house and it does it on all and on every channel in the app. If I go to Last Watched and select any channel the sound goes back to normal for a little while. Don’t even have to get out of the app for the sound to return to normal but I do have to reselect the channel. This is all the info requested by a Roku representative that I got no reply from.

So I have a sync issue with the Xfinity Stream app. It starts when commercials start. Xfinity says its a Roku issue, so I've come here to see if that's true. I don't have a garbled sound issue thought. Sound quality is good, the video and sound just get out of sync.
I have had this same problem for months now, both with 11.5 and 12 RokuOS. I have posted this in the Xfinity forum and they pointed it back to a Roku issue. I have a hard time believing its been a Roku issue this long without a fix, especially with a recent update from Roku.
What is the status of a fix?
Here is my post on the Xfinity forum: https://forums.xfinity.com/conversations/xfinity-stream-website/sound-issues-with-app-on-roku/644b1f...
Like someone else stated, this only starts when a commercial is playing, the video pauses for 2sec while the audio keeps on going. Only way to fix it is to exit back to the Xfinity guide and select the channel again.
Xfinity has pointed the finger back at Roku.... I recently added to an existing Xfinity post about this.

As you will see, Xfinity reported that Roku is currently working on a solution.
Posted 3 weeks ago and haven't seen any improvement, if anything it's worse. What is the status on a fix?
A new issue has started occurring. Sometimes when I hit the back button then resume to reset the audio, my screen goes to a light purple and freezes. I have to hit the home button then go back into the Xfinity stream app to reset it.
