no audio ota roku app

Post by consorts »

everything's updated, yet i get no audio while ota on any channel.
if i use the same hdhr roku app to playback dvr saved episodes,
the audio playback is fine.

all wired
extend tuner Firmware: 20200521
wdmycloud nas: latest version too

all other clients work fine, like win10 and android ;)

is there maybe some older roku app working better
that i need some manual method to load to my box?

Roku box does not decode Dolby Digital which is what OTA broadcasts. It is solely dependent on your TV or other connected device to decode DD.

Try these settings:
  1. Go to the Roku home screen
  2. Then navigate to Settings → Audio → HDMI
  3. and change the HDMI option to Dolby Digital
  4. Go back to Audio and select Audio mode
  5. and change Audio mode to (Auto (Dolby Digital))
