Issues with Roku audio? ( Roku Audio )

I have a Roku 3, and intermittently, the sound will start getting static-y and garbled. I pause whatever show I'm watching, unplug the HDMI, re-plug it back in, and we're back in business, no static.

I'm tempted to just replace the HDMI and see what happens, but before I do that, is this an issue with anyone else that has a Roku?

This happens in all apps, Netflix, Amazon, HBO GO, Plex, etc.

Thanks for the post.

Please be aware that the Roku 3 is an older device. It's possible that the device may be on its way out.
