Re: Streaming device volume drops or gets distorted

Hi @Jweisneck,

We appreciate the response!

Could you confirm if you're experiencing this issue with a specific channel, or does this generally happen on the Roku interface?

Your response would be much appreciated.

All the best,
Kash

Re: Streaming device volume drops or gets distorted

As I stated earlier, I use hbo max and xfinity the most.  That is where the problem happens.

Re: Roku Ultra - Volume glitch after some time - Volume glitched high or low and distorted

I've been having this issue for months, on Hulu, HBO and Netflix for sure, maybe others, haven't been paying attention. If I back out of the program and then go back in, it's returned to normal. Until today it was just a reduction in volume but today it glitched.

Re: Roku Ultra - Volume glitch after some time - Volume glitched high or low and distorted

I've been having the same problem for several months now. It is intermittent but can occur several times in the course of one evening. I have found that briefly going to 'fast forward' and then back to 'resume' will usually reset the issue. It would appear that the audio decoding software drops some bits, messes up the decoding and needs to get resynced.

I have restarted my system many times and it has continued to happen over time.

Hi @AzPeacemaker77,

Thanks for keeping us posted!

We're sorry to hear about the persistent issue that has been happening on your Roku device. Since this issue seems to be affecting multiple channels you are accessing, this likely indicates that the root cause is the Roku streaming device itself and not the channels. Have you tried factory resetting the Roku device to see if the issue persists? Please be aware that factory resetting the Roku device will require you to re-activate the device and may ask for you to re-authenticate some channels.

For more information about how to perform a factory reset on a Roku device, visit our Support page here: System restart or factory reset your streaming device

Please keep us posted on what you find out so we can assist you further.

All the best,
Kash
