Re: Audio delay for five to ten seconds after pauses

@bigboab5,

Thanks for the post,

We appreciate you reaching out to us. We're pleased to assist.

Try adjusting TV settings
Please try adjusting the TV settings described below to help fix an A/V sync error. Consult online documentation for your TV model or contact the manufacturer directly for detailed instructions.

  • Some TV models have an A/V Sync feature that can often be found in an Audio sub-menu within the Settings menu on your TV. If the feature exists on your TV, try adjusting it to see if A/V sync improves. The feature may also be called something like Audio delay or Lip-sync.
  • Use the following suggestion if the sound is distinctly heard before you see the picture.
    • Turn off any advanced video processing on your TV such as motion smoothing, or video noise reduction. These controls are often found in a Video or Picture Settings sub-menu within the Settings menu on your TV.
  • Try the suggestions below if the sound is distinctly heard after you see the picture.
    • Set the digital audio output on your TV to PCM. You can often find this setting in an Audio sub-menu within the Settings menu on your TV.
    • Try turning off Game Mode if the setting exists on your TV. 

Please keep us posted on what you find out, and we will be happy to continue assisting you further. We look forward to hearing back from you.

Thanks,

Arjiemar

Re: Audio delay for five to ten seconds after pauses

Hi there,

 

I have reset the router to no avail. 

 

There also seems to be a misunderstanding of the problem. It is not that the audio is out of sync, not at all. The problem is that the audio, for want of a better description, the volume goes to 0, then comes back to the normal volume about 10 secs later. It happens every time the prog ends and when there ads start, for every ad and then when the next prog starts. . When the audio returns in each instance, it is perfectly on synch. If I can I will record a video to show you.

Re: Audio delay for five to ten seconds after pauses

When I had this issue, someone asked me to test the stick on another tv. I did and it worked fine. I then brought the stick back to my original tv and the problem went away.

Re: Audio delay for five to ten seconds after pauses

Hi @bigboab5,

Thanks for keeping us updated!

We appreciate you taking a video of the issue. Have you tried removing the affected channel and then reinstalling it? In some cases, that resolves the issue. Make sure you restart your Roku device before adding the channel back in to ensure the process is successful. Here are the steps you can follow:

  1. Remove the channel: Highlight the channel tile on your home screen and press the Star button to open the options menu. Select Remove channel and confirm.
    • Note: If you remove a subscription channel billed to your Roku account, you must cancel the subscription before seeing the Remove Channel option. For help identifying this type of subscription channel, read the detailed article about removing a channel.
  2. Restart your Roku device: If reaching the power cord to unplug your Roku device is inconvenient, you can restart the device from the settings menu. Go to Settings > System > PowerSystem Restart > Restart. (If you do not see a Power submenu, skip to the next step).
  3. Reinstall the channel: After your Roku device restarts, visit the Roku Channel Store and add the channel again.
    • Note: If you add a subscription channel billed to your Roku account, you must re-subscribe.

For more references on how to troubleshoot any channel playback issues, you can visit our Support page.

Please keep us posted regarding the behavior you are experiencing, and we will be more than happy to continue assisting you further.

All the best,

Chel

Re: Audio delay for five to ten seconds after pauses

Ok, still to try those last suggestions. But I have noticed something. The audio is reduced to zero for a few seconds when there is an overlay, ie, skip intro, next episode, ad 1 of 2 etc. hopefully this will help.
