In case you are wondering why I don’t use the Apple phone app, either Roku or Apple has put a cap on the max volume when watching Roku apps and, with my hearing impairment, I just don’t get enough volume.
I do not like for my android cell phone to limit the volume level. And I don't need their "volume" warning every time I turn up the volume loud. F them! I'm an adult and don't need to be restricted by their programming or receive their warnings every time!!
As for my ears being hurt or damaged, the entire Fkng media delivery systems, of amps and TVs are just way behind what's necessary in the real world
of watching stuff like You Tube and Roku channels... ALL OF WHICH HAVE DIFFERENT VOLUME LEVEL BASELINE FEEDS TO THE USER.
What I need my TV to do, and my amp also, mostly my TV to do, is, when I cut the TV/Roku off for the evening, I want to turn the damn thing off, period. So what I need the TV to do, is to turn back on at a preset volume that I have selected ---- JUST LIKE MY CAR AUDIO ALLOWS ME TO DO (Factory AM/FM CD player in a VW).
So if I pull up with the volume loud, and shut the radio off, when I get back in the car, maybe the next day, when I turn the radio on, it's not at the loud level left it on, put at the preset level, which is low. Then I can turn up the volume to what I want, depending on whether the source is radio or CD.
So if I've got the TV volume double what it would be for OTA, because I was watching something on Roku that required twice the volume of OTA, when I turn the TV back on the next day, I do not want to be shocked by a volume level that's too loud!!! THAT'S WHAT THE FEATURE TO HAVE A SET AUDIO VOLUME LEVEL UPON TURNING ON THE TV SHOULD DO --- BUT THE TV MFGS AND THEIR BRAINTRUST HAVEN'T FIGURED THAT OUT YET!!!
But I've got better things to do than make it my Life's mission to jump through the hoops and BS to make that happen.
