If you guys knew how many permutations I've tried with my 4630 on OS 9 to get any of these audio options to appear, you'd hand me a cold beer for my efforts!
Seriously, I've tried it all. Tried forcing the thing to stereo instead of Auto in the main options, tried at least a dozen different apps x dozens of different videos/streams, rebooted multiple times, physically cycled power multiple times, checked for updates through Settings, checked for updates through the hidden menu, etc. etc. etc.
What they have described in that article is simply nowhere to be found in this 4072 build. iFrog mentioned being on the 4083 build with his 4660, so it appears that he has a slightly newer release than I do. My hunch remains that they botched the audio settings in 4072 and fixed them in 4083.
PS - I have not resorted to factory resetting the 4630, nor will I go down that path. Every other feature is working exactly as expected and I've been lucky enough with this thing that I've experienced almost none of the other popular bugs that get reported frequently. My YouTube app works perfectly, never signs me out, as do all of the other apps. I am not going to tempt fate by doing a factory reset of a device that is otherwise working perfectly. I'll wait for the next OS update, it is what it is.
hey RokuShawnS[/url:1rgdd7i4] can you find out why they removed the volume features from the 4640? this ...
yes the 4640 is the 2016 ultra, I'm not going to move to the 2017 or 2018 ultra, they removed optical audio out and cut the channel memory in half in those. which is ok if you don't have a lot of channels but I do. and no a micro SD is not a solution, the built in memory is much faster

Key Roku OS 9 features:
- Automatic Volume Leveling – This feature enables a uniform audio level across various types of content, so it will no longer feel jarring when a commercial comes on or when streaming channels are changed. This feature can be turned on/off within the Volume Mode setting that appears in the options menu after pressing the Star button during video playback. Automatic Volume Leveling is available on select Roku streaming players and Roku TV models. Click here[/url:1r7ogx87] for more information on Automatic Volume Leveling and supported devices.
