New HDCP Errors with 10.0.0 (YouTube Black Playback)
My Roku Ultra (4660X) updated automatically to 10.0.0 4150, and now I get HDCP errors left and right.
The biggest issue is that the YouTube will only play the audio, but the video is black.
I have followed all the HDCP guides on how to fix the issue, but none of it works.
I have several devices in the chain (Caavo, Yamaha Sound Bar, Samsung TV), but frankly it should not matter as the previous release worked fine.
I prefer the Roku UI and controls to my Apple TV and Fire TV, but that is the exact reason I have 3 media players: software updates always seem to break something, but unfortunately it is usually Roku.
I am so close to throwing this thing out the window and never buying a Roku product again, as software updates with Roku seem to be Russian Roulette with 3 rounds loaded in the chamber.
I understand there is a lot of hardware out there, but I never get HDCP errors with Apple or Amazon, but it has been a running theme for years with Roku.
We would be happy to look further into this issue for you. I have passed along your concerns to the appropriate team. In the meantime, can you please provide us with the following information:
-Roku device model
(these can all be found in Settings > System > About)
-does this issue occur on a specific channel? if so, what channel and what version/build is the channel (this can be found be selecting the channel on the Home screen and pressing the * button)
-tracker ID when this issue occurs (when you see this issue occur, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times)
-steps to reproduce the issue you are seeing
Once we have this information we will be able to investigate further.
Re: New HDCP Errors with 10.0.0 (YouTube Black Playback)
I just upgraded to version Roku 10.0.0 build 4177-C2 on my 4800X - Roku Ultra and ever since then, I'm getting an HDCP error. It only shows for a few seconds, but then goes back to playing the content normally. It doesn't matter what channel I'm watching (I mainly use Plex and YouTube) and it happens on all of them, regardless of the content type.
