Garbled sound

I just connected my new Roku device to a 12 year old Samsung TV. Picture is okay; sound is completely garbled. 

The Roku device works fine on a newer TV.  So I assume the problem is with the old Samsung TV. 

Does it make sense that I am getting good picture but poor sound?

Re: Garbled sound

I had something similar last week on my Streaming Stick Plus (didn't involve another tv though). Roku restart fixed it. Settings > System > System restart.
