Alright, this is going to be an odd issue. It started a little while ago, I never brought it up thinking it’s unrelated, but seeing the message from the CEO, the timing may coincide with the Roku rebooting and the LPW.
I have a surround sound system at home, and even though the Tablo is only 2.0, I set it to DPLII, and it plays through all the speakers.
Coming out of commercial breaks (usually after I fast forward), I hear this loud (VERY VERY VERY LOUD) chirping/pinging sound out of my rear-left speaker. Occasionally it hits rear left then goes to rear-right. It sounds like glass breaking. It’s very brief, and VERY loud. First time it happened, I assume I had a broken window. Or my kids dropped a glass vase.
To answer the foreseeable questions - Only tablo playback, none of my other sources do this. I highly doubt (can’t say 100%, but I’d say 99.99999%) that it’s not the AVR, TV, speakers, etc. This does not happen with ANY other content either in DPLII or DD5.1 or DTS/DTS-HD. Again, only during Tablo playback (I don’t watch live TV through tablo, not sure if it happens there).
There is no odd sound (at any volume) on the PC (2.1) or phone (1.0?) at the same increments. It happens on random TV shows, but it’s ALWAYS after I fwd and right before the show starts.
Had the issue on Roku 1s but replaced all three with Roku 3s and no longer have it. I understand this is a wireless Roku issue and how it handles a drop in volume the broadcasting station inserts at various points like commercial transitions. No ETA on Tablo’s end but they’re working to get it corrected.
That’s a good question. I hardwired mine so I never checked that. But in reading Tablo support’s findings it was limited to Roku 2 and below. I could unplug mine and see what I get if you like. Might be a few days to get enough viewing in though.
But after using the 3s I’ll never go back. My family can use their own Netflix profiles again, the button response speed is much faster, things open much faster, and the headphone jack on the remote comes in handy.
