I downloaded 9.3 on 4/28/20 and the audio function on the headphone jack was restored. However, the volume control is still not working properly. Volume level can only change between level 24 - 26 when I toggle the volume button on the remote.
I believe this fix is possibly specific to the 2720x which never had private listening on the phone app. People with hearing impairment who purchased the 2720x for the private listening feature as an accessibility function were left in a bind the past 5 months.
I'm puzzled why the volume control function wasn't also restored. If the firmware release procedures still aren't robust, I'm not confident the return of the private listening feature is permanent. An official Roku explanation of what happened would be helpful.
I have a Roku Ultra that we purchased 8/2019 and the private listening function was working until yesterday's update. Now after plugging in headphones for a few seconds there is high-pitched static and the remote stops functioning all together. We have to take a battery out and put it back in for the remote to begin working again. How can I get rid of this update? I tried the "secret screen", but the previous version is not available. Will it be another 6 months before this one gets fixed??
Thanks for the not.

Headphones will not work on my Roku 2720x that is running version 9.2.0 build 4804 (shows this version is from 12/11/19). It is now 5/4/20 and it still shows there is no update available. I can't use the Roku as it stands and need to know if this will be fixed on my model very soon or if I need to move on.
I'm having the same problem with my 2. An employee from Roku told me how to do the update but it's not showing that there is an update to be downloaded. So as of now, I'm stuck with no private listening.
I suspect that there may be some legal issues regarding the removal of the private listening feature on older Roku remotes. After all, this was a feature that was offered when purchasing this device. I don't remember seeing anything in the manual indicating that Roku would reprogram and disconnect the availability of this feature at Roku's discretion at a later date.
