I'm having the same issue. TCL Roku TV is connected to sound bar (ARC) but I get a brief moment with sound when booting up (fast start) then sound disappears. Only a system restart solves the issue. If I close the sound bar, the TV has sound. If I re-open the sound bar still no sound.
I just got my roku ultra plus and the next day (today) I started having the same audio issues. Unplugging and plugging back in the hdmi resolves the issue until the next episode or until I need to pause the program OR every 10 minutes…like I said the cable that came with the roku and the roku is brand new (1 day old)…I bought another hdmi and STILL the same issue…. What now?
Can you please provide more detailed information about the issue you are experiencing:
-Roku device model, serial number, device ID, and software OS/version (these can all be found in Settings > System > About)
-does this issue occur on a specific channel? if so, what channel and what version/build is the channel (this can be found be selecting the channel on the Home screen and pressing the * button)
-tracker ID when this issue occurs (when you see this issue occur, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times)
-steps to reproduce the issue you are seeing
With more information, we will be able to assist you further.
Danny, I have a Roku express and there was an update. This update has now impacted the sound for premium app channels (HBO MAX, Netflix, Prime, etc.). The sound plays for the preview - however, when you select the movie… no sound at all. Roku doesn’t have a direct contact. Please provide some help please.
I have same issue with Roku Ultra. If I remove Ultra and install my old Roku3, everything works normal. Reinstalling Ultra, problem returns. Suspect it might be software issue for Ultra did initially work normal. Having to Restart Ultra every time you switch from Live TV to Roku is a pain. Wife suggests I purchase Apple. If next software release doesn’t correct, I will take measures to remedy.
