No sound via HDMI: Chromebook to Roku TV

I have a chromebook connected to my Roku TV via a HDMI cable.  I have the tv set to "computer".  For a year the set up worked perfectly.  Now I'm having issues with sound.  It just won't come through.  I have changed out the HDMI cable, tried different ports and updated both the tv and chromebook.  The sound works on both the chromebook and tv.  For some things I can cast the chromebook to the tv, but for other software programs I can't.  

How can I get the audio set up to consistently work?

Re: No sound via HDMI: Chromebook to Roku TV


Thanks for the post.

We would be more than happy to look into this issue for you. Can you please provide us the following information:
-Roku device model, serial number, device ID, and software OS/version (these can all be found in Settings > System > About)
-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 pass it along to the appropriate Roku team to investigate further.
