Trying to watch Star Trek Picard kicks me out of the app

Over the weekend we were at a location where I had to sign up for Paramount Plus on the AppleTV app. When we got home I tried watching the same shows (Picard) through Roku and every time it kicked me all the way out to the Home Screen. I tried it multiple times with the same results. I then played it on my AppleTV and it worked flawlessly. I can watch other Paramount shows fine, so why Star Trek. Must be the Romulans. 😛

Hi @GWLaguna

Thanks for the post.

For us to isolate the issue, are you experiencing any other problems watching other content when using Apple TV on your Roku? Have you tried removing the channel > restart your Roku > add the channel back in? If not, we suggest giving it a shot. 

Check out this link if you need help with the suggestion above: How do I resolve channel playback issues?

Please keep us posted!

All the best,

Re: Trying to watch Star Trek Picard kicks me out of the app

Thank you for getting back to me. I did remove the AppleTV app and restart my Roku and then added it back. What I’m finding is it’s only when trying to play a Dolby Vision program within the AppleTV app. I can play them fine through Netflix, but not Paramount Plus inside the AppleTV app. As I said, I have not had any issues doing the same thing on my AppleTV using the same apps, so I believe there’s something happening still with DV and certain apps. Please let me know how to continue. Thank you.

Re: Trying to watch Star Trek Picard kicks me out of the app

Following up again…. I’ve been trying all my various apps to see what’s causing this error (bug), and it appears that anything I try to play within the AppleTV app that’s switching to Dolby Vision kicks me out to the Home Screen. I can play the same movies or shows within Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ etc. and they play fine. It appears that in my application, it’s something to do with Dolby Vision content not being able to play in the AppleTV app. I hope that helps you narrow down the issue.  My current configuration is the Roku Ultra 4800x running 10.0 build 4195-C2 on a Sony XBR75Z9H. Thank you.

Dolby Vision & HDR not working in some channels on Hisense RokuTV

I have found that on the Prime Video channel and the AppleTV channel Dolby Vision is not working. Also in Prime Video HDR doesn’t always work either. 
I have been watching programs that show as being in HDR/Dolby Vision but they do not play that way. 
to test this I installed Prime Video and AppleTV on my Chromecast with GoogleTV that is on another input on the same TV. I then played the same content. On the Chromecast with GoogleTV the content came up as Dolby Vision or HDR as specified but on the RokuTV the content either came up without any HDR or Dolby Vision (Prime Video) or the Dolby Vision content on AppleTV plays as HDR on RokuTV.

I think the problem is in the App video interface with the RokuTV since is plays properly on the same TV through the Chromecast.
