HLS live stream no starting at "live" segment

Hi,

When I'm playing an HLS live stream it seems that Roku will not play the latest chucnk file but will load the first chunkfile and go from there. On some of the streams that can be 3 hours behind. Other players including ffplay play the stream at the current "live" segment. Is there a parameter I can set to tell Roku to play the stream at the actual live segment?

As @StreamerUser said, you'll find the answer there if you search.  I can't remember it off the top of my head, but it's been asked several times.
