Re: Does FW 7.7 Fix Roku Ultra Audio Issues?

I've spent around six hours watching Netflix and so far no audio dropouts/pops on the Dolby EAC-3 bitstream to AVR.  I was also getting them with Amazon and VUDU, but I haven't had cause to watch anything from either of those since the update.

Aside: Red Lightning artifact is NOT resolved by 7.7.

Re: Roku Ultra - Audio Popping and Clicking

Has anyone experienced audio popping/clicking/chirping/dropouts with DTS bitstream output as opposed to Dolby (Digital or Digital Plus)?  I typically get at least one audio hiccup about every 20 minutes, but I watched various DTS (including DTS 96/24) rips last night using the basic Roku Media Playe...

Re: Roku Ultra - Audio Popping and Clicking

Still experiencing periodic audio hiccups/dropouts for bitstream audio output.  Build 7.6 does not seem to have had any effect.

Re: Firmware 7.6 udpate

7.6 build does not fix any of the P+ issues I have logged, including periodic audio bitstream hiccup/dropout and Netflix color matrix error for 709 inside 2020.

DD+ bitstream hiccup/dropout issue still occurring with VUDU for me in the 4111 build.  Possibly worse than before.  Have not had any problems with Netflix or Amazon...yet, but didn't watch for long.

Netflix gamma (black crush) issue has been addressed. BT.709 color space in BT.2020 container still looks wrong (desaturated)...at least on LG 2016 OLED TVs.

Re: Roll out of OS 7.5.1 to Ultra, Premiere+, and Premiere has been suspended

Disabling HDR on the Premiere+ doesn't resolve the audio hiccups/pops in every situation.  It doesn't help in my system, for example.  It does resolve the gamma/color space issue with Netflix.  Fortunately, I don't have any of the HDMI sync issues many are experiencing.

Re: Premiere Audio Sync Issues with Amazon and Netflix

Yes.  Sadly, I have to concur with NOT speaking or chatting with Roku support.  You won't find any help there.  Occasionally, there will be a nice, informative post here on the forums from Roku engineering.

Re: Roll out of OS 7.5.1 to Ultra, Premiere+, and Premiere has been suspended

On a positive note...I have had a chance to run a fairly thorough suite of video test patterns through the Premiere+, and it is capable of performing very well.  If Roku can resolve the current issues, the Premiere+ will be a nice little box to have.

Re: Roll out of OS 7.5.1 to Ultra, Premiere+, and Premiere has been suspended

Ok I tried setting it to 4k (no HDR) and watched that same part of season 6 Stranger Things on Netflix and yep, it looks much better now, just like the Netflix app on my Samsung TV in 4k. I then turned the Roku back to 4k with HDR and it was back to having a black crushed image. I then started play...

Netflix Workaround for Non-HDR Content If your Roku is currently set to 4K UHD HDR mode and you are having issues with Netflix "black crush" or color space in 7.5.1, try this. Step 1. Return the Roku to 4K UHD (not HDR) mode.  It's under Display in the Settings menu.  The Roku will run its...

Re: Roll out of OS 7.5.1 to Ultra, Premiere+, and Premiere has been suspended

Just to be clear, I don't know that the gamma (black crush) is related to the color space conversion. 2K/4K BT.709 gamut looks wrong in the BT.2020 space to my eye (just compare it to a device sending BT.709), but I have not  confirmed that yet.  My previous post has been edited to reflect such. It ...

Re: Roll out of OS 7.5.1 to Ultra, Premiere+, and Premiere has been suspended

As someone who has used or reviewed most of the popular streaming media players, I would like to offer that they all have their own problems and idiosyncrasies.  None of them do everything right.  Most of them do  many things wrong (not all of which are obvious to every user).  Each one does somethi...

Re: Premiere Audio Sync Issues with Amazon and Netflix

Applies to Amazon *Only* - I have a possible A/V sync issue with Roku Premiere+ (Auto/DD+/YCbCr 4:2:0 10-bit) > Denon AVR-X7200W > LG OLEDB6P.  It is so subtle, if present, that I cannot confirm it is there at all.  This is true for 2K24 and for 4K24 (HDR10).  Tested using Deadwood S2:E8 and  The Ma...
