Thanks for the reply Boogernose. It seems that Private Listening is cancelled out only when I connect to my cable box. It works when I’m not in that mode. hdmi cable works in the other modes too. do you know of any restrictions that Roku may have with Optimum cable provider that would prohibit the use of Private Listening when using one of their boxes? Anyone else maybe know?
I'm having a similar problem. My Roku player is connected to my Onkyo A/V system and the A/V system connects to the TV via an HDMI cable. Through the app on my Android phone, I can enable the private listening and the external speakers stop playing but a pop up screen in the app reads: *gaming not supported and no sound is heard through the bluetooth headphones connected to the phone. Is this a bug or is my configuration not supported?
