Poor audio and low volume when watching with Roku

Sat Jul 20, 2019 9:24 pm

This applies to both Amazon Prime and Netflix, although Netflix is the worst. I usually have my TV set on 20 for volume. When I'm watching through Roku I might have it as high as in the 60's to hear it, and the actual voices are still not real clear. Voices are hard to understand. I just have the Roku plugged into the TV through HDMI cable. But bottom line is I have no trouble listening to my TV unless I'm watching it through Roku. 

Is there any help for this, a setting or something?

Thanks for letting us know about the issue you're seeing. Could you please provide some additional details so we can help take a closer look? 

- Which model of Roku device are you using when you experience this issue? (Settings>System>About - e.g. 4660X)
- Have you tried using a different HDMI cable and connecting the Roku to a different HDMI port on your TV?
- Have you tried connecting your Roku device to a different TV to see if you observe the same issue? 
- What is the make/model of TV that your Roku is connected to? 
- What is an example of a specific content title inside both 1) Amazon Prime Video and 2) Netflix that you are watching when you observe the low audio issue? 
- Does the same issue occur in other channels on your device, such as YouTube, The Roku Channel, Hulu, etc.? 

With more information, we can continue assisting from there.
