Re: [OS 11.5] Audio stops working after long pause
I have a brand-new Ultra with 11.5 FW. It’s directly connected to my TV (no sound bar). I paused YouTubeTV and resumed it about 15 minutes later. There was no sound on YouTubeTV. No sound on Prime. However, Fox Nation had sound. The responsiveness was sluggish as if the CPU was burdened. When I tried Paramount+, the Ultra crashed and rebooted on its own, after which everything worked.
This failure is not 100% repeatable, but seems to occur about 10-20% of the time.
I also tried a “workaround” suggested in an earlier thread (for 11.0 FW) – I set the audio to Passthrough and the audio format to Dolby (and also to DTS). None of this helped.
It sure seems like the Ultra’s 11.5 FW crashes occasionally when resuming from paused YouTubeTV.
I'm new to Roku and also bought 2 more Ultras, but all 3 may go back to Amazon.
Loss of Audio after the pausing of a program I was watching.
Every once in a while, my audio for the program I had paused will not work. The sounds from my Roku are fine, it's just no audio from the program after unpausing it. I have to restart my ultra or unplug it to get the audio back.
Anytime you watch something on YouTubeTV and pause it for let's say 5 minutes and return. There is no volume. I actually have to reboot the Roku, exiting YouTubeTV does not fix the issue. While trying to play with no volume, I have pressed the asterisk and changed the volume settings to see if it would work and it won't.
