Nope. The Roku devices don't communicate with anything except the server that's streaming content. It's no difference than one in your house and one in my house. They are completely independent devices. Same for other streaming devices, too.

It WOULD be neat if Roku offered this.. Amazon offers multiroom audio on its Echo devices, but I'm guessing synced audio AND video is a lot tougher.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

All I can think of is an HDMI distribution box. Plug the Roku in as the source, then send the feeds out to multiple TVs. They should be sync'd extremely close that way. I've seen two of my TVs playing the same OTA station, and the sound and image are not perfectly sync'd. I think a distribution system is the only likely way to do it successfully. I see some fairly inexpensive boxes on Amazon with two HDMI out ports. As long as it isn't 4K, prices look reasonable.

I don't think the two TVs can sync with each other.  I used the [font=-apple-system, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, sans-serif]Roku devices from last year , but I never try to sync them. This year, I plan to buy another kitchen TV.[/font]
