Streaming to Monitor without HDMI ARC or Optical

I have a UHD monitor with HDMI ports, but no HDMI ARC or optical input. Will the Roku streaming bar play the audio directly since the audio comes from the bar in the first place?

Why does the audio have to come back to the streaming bar from the monitor?

Re: Streaming to Monitor without HDMI ARC or Optical

Hi @RockyBob,

Welcome to the Roku Community!

Please be aware that in order for your Roku streaming bar to work with audio, it should always be connected to an HDMI ARC input.

For more information, you can visit this support page: Getting to Know Your Roku Streambar.

We hope this helps!
