Intermittent problem receiving OTA and streaming programs
My P605 is running 9.0.0, I suspect updated within the past week, probably less. Regardless, I noticed two days ago a problem receiving OTA and any streaming programming.
I have my satellite dish, laptop, and Raspberry Pi (Kodi) connected to the HDMI1, HDMI2, and HDMI3 inputs. I have CEC disabled. My wife normally watches programming via dish, so I have the TV setup to use the HDMI1 input when it's turned on. I occasionally watch OTA broadcast, especially when my dish receiver is down, and we frequently watch streaming programs via Roku at night.
Intermittently, if I switch from HDMI1 directly to OTA (Antenna) or one of the streaming sources; e.g., Netflix, I get a black screen with no audio; i.e., no audio or video. If I turn on open captions, I get those, and I can access the program guide when I'm trying to watch OTA. I've reset the TV, and the problem disappears for awhile and then returns. I also noticed that if I end up with no audio and video, then if I switch to HDMI2 or HDMI3, then back to OTA or a streaming source, all is well. The problem is intermittent. I just turned the TV on for the first time today. It came on, as normal, set to HDMI1, and received dish TV. I switched directly to OTA (Antenna) and received programming correctly. Then I shut the TV off and tried exactly the same sequence again. No Antenna TV. So, I switched to HDMI2, then back to Antenna and started receiving OTA TV without difficulty.
I've reported this to TCL and am waiting for a response. I thought I'd post my problem here in case others have had similar experiences.
I agree with rolltide1017 above. I'll think very seriously before buying another Roku TV. Forcing me to take updates that end up breaking things that work is very annoying. This isn't the first time I've experienced update issues either. Give me a "dumb" TV and I'll connect "smart" devices to it.
