Have a Roku Ultra that has been working fine for months. The last two weeks, every evening when I come in and try to watch TV, I have no sound. I can power cycle the Roku and the sound comes back and works fine until the following day. I have to jump through these hoops every day to have sound. I have changed nothing, Roku is connected to TV via HDMI and with only a power cycle it comes back. Don't think I should have to do this every day to make it work. Suggestions?

I have a TV that does the same thing. I guess I'll have to make a separate ticket.
Thanks but I had already checked that before I posted this. Like I said, it has worked flawless for many months and just recently started doing this. Maybe a Roku update introduced a bug? A power cycle of the Roku box will make the sound work again. Frustrated!
Thanks for following up.
We appreciate you for letting us know about the audio issue you are experiencing and we'd like to take a closer look to see if there's anything else we can suggest to help.
To isolate the audio issue, is the issue you are experiencing only happen on a specific channel, or does the loss of audio happen on all channels? Does changing the Roku audio mode from Auto to Stereo resolve the issue? In addition, try replacing the HDMI cable connecting your Roku device to your TV, or connect the Roku device to a different HDMI port on your TV.
Please keep us posted and we'll continue assisting you from there.
I have a Roku device I just bought about 2 mos ago that does the same thing after a long pause. I've been restarting the device to resolve the issue, and this works, but it's very inconvenient. Here's the device description:
Model: Roku Ultra 4802X
Device ID TC2R1036
Software Version 11.5.0.build 4312-C2
Problem occurs on all channels
Issue ID 9S-122-705
PS: This is my 2nd Roku Ultra; had the previous one several years, never experienced this problem.
It must be a software glitch.
Thanks for the post.
Please see @RokuMary-F's post above. We would recommend trying out her suggestions and then replying here with answers to her inquiries. We'll be able to further assist you from there.
All the best,
Thanks for the added information. Can you try a different HDMI plug or HDMI port on the TV?
I have a ROKU TV (Westinghouse). Some times the sound works, sometimes it doesn't. So far, recycling the power all the way off, works.
I've tried the following to see if I could make the audio fail:
Turning it off and on after using different channels such as, FireTV, Spotify, Hulu, and Live TV, thinking the one of the channel left the audio in some kind of specialized setting.
Result: None of the above channels have caused it to fail.
Next, I tried turning off the *power and adjusting volume etc. using Alexa instead of the remote.
Next, I switched it from Auto to speaker.
It works all evening, but the next morning (sometimes) no sound.
The next test will be to check the optical to see if that's working when the speakers aren't (and no, I never use headphones)
*The TV uses standby mode. Switching from on to standby doesn't fix the sound, completely powering down does.
