Those can be worked around so quickly by switching the P+ output to 4K instead of 4K HDR that I don't even think about it anymore. I just flip back and forth depending on what I'm watching.
The P+ is now my go-to 4K HDR media player for OTT, pulling slightly ahead of Shield TV and Chromecast Ultra (although each has its individual strengths and unique applications).
I'm very sorry to read of all the issues other users are having with the Premiere+ and Ultra.
Roku support was prepared to replace my Ultra on CaseID claim for audio issues but asked that I factory reset first (they'd agree to replace next day if I called in). I said I'd give it a try but haven't had much opportunity to test audio. The drops appear to far less frequent to duplicate with ease.
I've never had HDCP errors or wake from screensaver issues on this unit so I'd prefer to keep it if audio bugs are squashed in software.
I can't really say I've experienced the audio bugs since factory reset. Minor issues with Amazon Prime Salvation series with dialogue hitting low octaves and no way to describe it except it's like the bass is pushed to limit and starts distorting on these low octaves. I've experienced this with Sennheiser RS 185 and headphones attached to Roku Ultra remote.
The other audio issue I've noticed since the factory reset is an audible pop on Tennis TV matches. The pop is constantly occurring just before commentary begins. I'm thinking this is the Mic picking up the commentator wetting the palette before speaking. They REALLY should move the Mic away from their mouth.
Before the factory reset, audio was dropping very frequently on Netflix and Hulu. I'm not at the point to say that's fixed but factory reset is something I should have done when update 7.7 dropped. This wasn't nearly as inconvenient as I thought it would be. I didn't have to sign in to every app and my apps weren't lost either. I found that to be odd at the time; it seems a lot of user data is retained. But I had signed into some of those apps recently; maybe that's why.
Given the current choices in streamers, I'd really like to like the Roku Ultra. Dunno, it may be relegated to "stick" travel purposes when the Apple TV 5 releases. There's so much more the Ultra could do; I hope Roku continues to improve it and readily make new apps available.
I'm going to look into that hulu beta app next.
