Audio Leveling Causes Sound To be Out of Sync

I never had this problem until the system update to version 10 build 4208-46.

4660X Roku Ultra.

Now I have this problem.

Re: Audio Leveling Causes Sound To be Out of Sync


I believe that I have the same issue - I don't know if it is audio leveling specifically causing this issue though. I also did not notice any issues before the FORCED/BACKGROUND OS UPDATE. You guys should really not be doing that stuff, by the way.

I exclusively use the Plex channel on my Roku, I do not know if it happens in other channels. I am using the Plex Preview channel, version 6.8, build 3.

Again, the reason I have been forced to use the Plex Preview channel is because the FORCED/BACKGROUND OS UPDATE TO ROKU 10 broke AAC audio in the standard Plex app and they implemented a dirty workaround while they address the issues you guys caused with this update.

I will only be able to use the Roku for about a week at a time, before the audio randomly gets out of sync and I have to restart the device.


Here is the information that was requested.

Model: 4630X - Roku Premiere+

Serial Number: YR000N184755 (7KA6A0184755)

Device ID: 7KA6A0184755

Software version: 10.0.0 build 4209-29

Tracker ID: 55-251-985.

I am not sure if the Tracker ID is still valid - I found this post just after the Roku audio experienced issues again and I already rebooted it before I did the trick to display the Tracker ID.

This is incredibly frustrating and I would really like the option to downgrade my Roku OS version. If I ever buy another Roku again, I will block all communication to Roku's update servers to prevent stuff like this from happening again.

It should also be noted that once the audio issue occurs, it is persistent throughout the Roku. ALL sounds are delayed - navigating through the Roku home screen/settings - the audio is all delayed.

So it is not a problem specific to the channel I am using, in my opinion.

@RokuDanny-R  - did you see my previous post with all of the info you requested to debug the issue?


I disabled Audio Leveling and didn't have the issue for a week. I enabled Audio Leveling and the issue presented itself within the next day or two.
