Update 5/19/2021: Resolved
 
We believe this issue is now resolved by checking for a software update. Thank you for your patience. Please see the accepted solution below for more information, or click here.

Hello Roku Community members!
 
We are aware that a subset of users may have lost TV power and volume  functions on their remote after the latest OS 10.0 update. Some customers impacted have the following remotes:
  • Voice Remote
  • Enhanced Voice Remote
Please be aware that we are still investigating the root cause for why this happened.
 
In the meantime, please set your Roku Remote again for TV controls. Navigate to Settings > Remotes & Devices > Remotes > [select your remote] > Set up remote for TV control. For more information about this setup process, visit our FAQ here: https://support.roku.com/article/115013019828.
 
If you're still running into an issue, and this function worked before the latest update, please respond to this thread with the following information:
  • Your Roku device model
  • TV make/model and AVR make/model (if applicable)
  • Issue ID (Attempt the instructions above to Set up your remote for TV Control. If your remote is still not controlling your TV power and volume, then please obtain an Issue ID. To generate an Issue ID, on your remote, press Home 5x then Back 5x (next to Home) in quick succession, and you'll see an Issue ID pop up on your screen. Let us know what that Issue ID is here).
Once we have this information we will be able to pass it along to the appropriate Roku team to look further into.


Thanks,
Danny

Update 5/19/2021: Resolved

We released a software update today that we believe will fix the TV control issue for customers who lost TV power and volume functions after the latest update.

Thanks for your patience while we investigated this issue. Please perform a software update from your device using the instructions below.

Instructions to manually update your software:
1.  Navigate to Settings
2.  Select System
3.  Select System update
4.  Select Check now


Confirm the dialogue box to proceed with download and installation.  Note that your Roku player will automatically download the latest software the next time when it checks for an update. After the Roku player finishes restarting, your TV volume and power functions should be restored.

After the Roku player finishes restarting, if your TV control functions have not been restored, set up your remote for TV control again by doing the following:

1.   Navigate to Settings
2.  Select Remotes & devices
3.  Select Remotes followed by your remote
4.  Select Set up remote for TV control

Our FAQ provides additional information and complete steps on how to set up your enhanced remote to control your TV.

 

We are going to lock this thread as we believe this issue is now resolved. If you are still experiencing a loss of TV functions after performing the update, please click to the new thread here and let us know. 

Thank you!

Hello.  I have a Roku 4660X - Roku Ultra.  The issue ID number is 27-173-765.  My TV is a Sony Bravia (not a smart TV). The voice remote that I received with the Ultra stopped controlling the volume.  It would just say 100 in the upper right hand corner of my TV.  I tried all the steps listed in the trouble shooting sections.  Nothing worked.  Thinking it was the remote, I just purchased a 2nd Roku voice remote only to have the same issue.  Volume rocker and mute button do not work.  When pressed, the number 100 appears.  I tried all of the steps with this remote, as well....turning everything off, disconnecting power, disconnecting HDMI cord, trying to reprogram it to control TV volume through the settings menu....still not working.  All other remote functions are working.  Please help!

Our remote will not turn the tv off and volume control does not work. Everything else works I think. We never used voice control - I tried that now and it is not working.
