Re: TCL Roku TV's / DD+ issue with Samsung HW-N950

There is a workaround. Go to Settings > Audio > S/PDIF and ARC. Select anything but “Auto detect” or “Dolby Digital Plus”

Re: No Dolby Digital Plus

HDMI® ARC is disabled by default. To enable HDMI® ARC, in the Home screen menu, navigate to Settings > System > Control other devices (CEC), and then highlight HDMI ARC. Press OK to enable or disable the feature. In addition, to disable broken Dolby Digital Plus, you should also navigate to Setting...

Re: No Dolby Digital Plus

This AV forum thread indicates that other non-Roku TV brands have exactly the same DD+ issue with my Yamaha receivers. This certainly points towards the receiver as the culprit.

Re: TCL Roku TV's / DD+ issue with Samsung HW-N950

Is there a chance that (if this capability still exists) transcoding is occurring before output to the ARC? I appreciate your experience and attention to our issue. I do not think it is about transcoding. We are talking about AV receivers and soundbars that are auto detected as DD+ capable. The thi...

You should have read the thread more carefully. This is about DD working and DD+ not over ARC on some receivers despite DD+ being enabled and allegedly supported.

Okay. But if I set to that and then play music via Plex that should be stereo, will TV output stereo to receiver?

If you tried, you would not need to ask, would you?

Re: Roku menus have grown too large

The 4k Roku TV layout is such that only 12 line menu items fit on the screen, with the 12th line already cropped slightly. Settings contain 13 items + separator, Settings > System contains 12 items + separator. Therefore respectively 2 or 1 items are off screen. It is just a bad design.

Re: Roku menus have grown too large

I am complaining about too many line items on some Roku TV menus after recent additions, not any kind of graphics glitch. It is not good when some items are off screen. A slider might work for a touch screen on a phone, but not for Roku with a slow click remote.

Roku menus have grown too large

Since Roku 9.1, Settings and Settings / System no longer fit on the screen completely and even cropped. This is rather noticeable, intimidating, and quite unpleasant. Please reconsider and redesign before you continue down that rabbit hole.

Re: RF channel alongside PSIP virtual channel

Phase 4 FCC repack is underway and I wish I had this feature now. I know this is rather niche feature request but it would be cool if Roku TVs were more analytical and precise about the OTA broadcast. It just makes sense to display RF channel or even actual frequency and strength in dB to on Edit Ch...

Re: 65" TCL series 6 Unable to get audio via receiver/HDMI ARC

You are not alone . As a possible workaround: Go to Home / Settings / Audio / S/PDIF and ARC , and select "Dolby D, DTS" instead of "Auto detect" or anything with plus. DD+ connections fails with Yamaha, Denon and Samsung receivers or soundbars, but works with Pioneer products.

Re: TCL R617 Roku 9.1 volume problem!

Why is this a problem? It is only a problem if 100 is too quiet. I do agree that most people expect 50 as comfortable level. I also have to use 70 with kids sleeping upstairs.

Re: TCL Roku TV's / DD+ issue with Samsung HW-N950

Don't hold your breath. The DD+ problems have been reported since 2016. At this point, I would just be happy to know if DD+ works for anybody. They always make it sound that it's an isolated  personal problem - asking for serial number and such. You are not alone.
