I, fortunately, fall into the first group. I routinely reset my Roku from its menu. I'm getting so good at it that it only takes about 30-45 seconds for me to be in business. But, what I'm wondering is whether this is a problem exclusive to Roku. That could influence my next TV purchase if the answer is to simply find a TV with another service built in.
I have followed all the steps suggested, the sound still isn't working. I even did a factory reset on the Roku device and it didn't work. I would like to know why I still have no sound. This is very frustrating when all I get for answers is the same steps that I have already tried. My Roku device is only 8 months old and is a Roku LE. My remote doesn't have the power button or the little reset button in the battery compartment.
As mentioned previously I also went through all the steps, (although I did not do a factory reset), with no success. Then, next day, everything was working normally. All settings, cables and ports were in original positions. I have no clue as to what happened.
The button usually in the battery compartment of the remote that you call “the reset button” is actually the remote pairing button. Also standard IR Simple Remotes for stand-alone Roku devices do not have TV button controls. Only RokuTV remotes and Voice Remotes do.
I’m into videotapes and old electronics stuff, including extenders, converters and analog 4:3 TV sets (which are obsolete these days), and Miss Bianca is my favorite character in Disney’s The Rescuers (1977) and its sequel, The Rescuers Down Under (1990). I am not a Roku employee, only a user like you. ~ Jordan
I'm kind of reaching here, but if you also have a cable box, I'd try turning off the cable box and then rebooting the Roku to see if it then works. With my ongoing need to reboot my Roku, I've become convinced there is some type of conflict between the Roku and the cable box. I remain very interested to know if any of the newer TVs with built in services are having this same problem, but I've not heard back from folks.
I have two stations that i pay for view, Dirtvision and Flosports Some times the sound works and other times is doesn't. Is there a way to fix this. The sound is fine on my desktop for the same programs.
