Roku with optical feature?

Jump to solution

Is there a Roku that offers an optical plug option? I have an older LG tv and sound bar. The TV itself doesn’t have an optical port but the sound bar does. The speakers in the tv aren’t the greatest so I’d like to use the sound bar for audio. I currently have a very old Roku express. Is there a newer model that offers a connection for sound bars?

Nope, the last roku with optical output was the first generation of Ultra 4640. Later Ultra's like the 4660, 4670, and the current 4800 no longer had it. Roku soundbars and streambars have an optical input.
