Problems with Audio

Postby wandari » Tue Dec 22, 2009 9:34 pm

Just purchased Roku Digital player and receive a beautiful picture, but an intermittent or no sound at all. Customer Service was of no help. If we plug into standard - we get a bad picture and great sound. Has anyone else had this problem? How did you fix it?

Describe your setup please-- there are many variables..

How is the Roku hooked up when you get terrible/no sound? And what type of equipment (TV and home theatre) do you own (model #'s and everything)?
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Audio Problem

I have a JVC (Model) LT-42PM30. The HDMI cable goes directly to the TV. The set-up was easy (as usual), just receiving intermittent audio. The audio is set to stereo on the TV. I also tried 5.1 Surround. We believe the box may be the problem.

Could be the box, but the reason you get garbled video when you use the standard cables is because you have it set up for HD on the Roku now.. If you go thru the setup and change the TV type to 16:9 and use the composite or S-Video cables, you should be able to get by for now with that..

But yeah, getting the box replaced sounds like the right next step.

You may want to try component if you have some cables. Seems HDMI can be problematic on some TVs. That would also give you HD and 5.1 audio.

I don't think you can get 5.1 sound on a 2-speaker TV ;)..

Audio Problem

I will try setting in 16:9 - I currently have it set in HDMI. I used the composite cables with HDMI setting - horrible picture - great sound. Thanks for the advice.
