Audio Problem with Certain Channels Using Auvio Sound Bar
I have had my Roku Ultra for more than a year. It is working great with a Samsung TV and Auvio sound bar. However, only certain channels can communicate with the Auvio sound bar.
Works with sound bar: Netflix, Hulu, YouTube
Doesn't work: HBO MAX, Roku Channel
When I try to play a selection from the second group of channels, the sound bar gives a loud static sound and then occasional static after that. Otherwise, silence. The movie plays on video, but no sound.
I had this problem previously with a new Blu-Ray player I just bought a few months ago. I was able to resolve it by changing the encoding type setting on the Blu-Ray. I changed the Dolby Audio setting from Bitstream to PCM and the DTS/DTS-HD setting from PCM to Bitstream. Sound started working great through the sound bar.
Any ideas? This seems so strange that different channels would use different encoding schemes.
