Losing sound happens when I first turn it on. I’m on the home screen with all the apps, click on Hulu and there’s no sound for any channel. I have tried resetting the internet modem, restarting the roku, switching to a different hdmi jack, unplugging.
in addition to losing sound when first turning the unit on I have been having issues where I am watching a show, everything seems normal and then all of a sudden it puts me back to the home page.
Is this issue happening on a specific channel(s) or is this happening on all channels? Try removing the channel(s) from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the channel back once more.
Does this clear up the issue you are seeing? Please keep us posted.
No, it's definitely not a channel issue. If I exit out of any app and go to another, for instance PBS to Hulu, it's completely silent. So anytime we switch between apps or channels as you call them, it goes silent. I've Uninstalled apps and that didn't help. I've reset the whole roku which was an exercise in futility, only causing me an hour of extra work having to reinstall and sign on to all of my apps again. Seems Roku has a large enough issue that they could issue an update to fix this annoying problem.
We're having a similar issue. I googled it and it is fixed when I change the volume mode to leveling (hit the asterisk button to access). But it's going out on every ad which is really unacceptable and needs to be fixed.
