I have the Roku hdmi running straight to my tv and the optical audio running to my audio receiver. I do not have any audio on my tv via hdmi with amazon prime. There is audio on the tv with netflix and all of my other video streaming channels. Only amazon prime has no sound.
So it seems that it is not a problem with my hdmi cable or the Roku box.
I do have 5.1 sound via the optical outlet on my Roku which runs to my audio system so I can listen to the amazon prime movies through the audio system but not through my tv.
Video is perfect with amazon prime as with all the other channels on my box.

not all movies from Amazon are in 5.1, only the HD ones that note Surround sound is available. If the movie you are streaming from Amazon is in stereo only, you won't get any sound unless the Roku is set to stereo.
