Just retried, exiting an NCIS episode via the Home button while it was running. Didn't affect audio elsewhere. Retried with movie instead of a TV show, in case that makes a difference, and still didn't lose audio elsewhere.
One thought. I'm not connected to an external audio system and just have my Roku Audio set to Auto(stereo).
