    I disconnected my soundbar and just used the speakers in my tv and still have a sound issue. I ordered a denon receiver and going to try optical from TiVo to the receiver. Sound issue is the hdmi is dropping out sound.

    Mine always did this. My receiver shows no stream when paused. If I leave it to long the receiver shuts off.

    I use the plex app on the roamio a lot and I don't have the issue. Its only on live tv. If the issue cant be fixed I might just put the roamio in my network closet and get another mini for my main tv.

    I use a Vizio sound bar 4251wb4 and I lose Dolby Digital when fast forwarding thru commercials. Using Tivo premiere. Anyone else have this issue?

    Hey Tim, this is the Roamio Forum so you might not get much help on this topic. Try posting it in the Premier section. You might get more interest there.

    Still having this issue myself. TiVo is really dropping the ball on this.

    bruab, I'm not sure if your still subscribed to this thread but can you post a model # or link to the optical switch you purchased?

    My Roamio will drop audio after a pause or a RW about a third of the time using my Pioneer receiver which I believe was similar to your issue. No issues with my Onkyo receiver so I think this is mainly a TiVo issue. I'd like to try the optical switch.

    I have two vizio tv's and both have a issue with tivo. On my 70in I'll turn it on and it will say something like waiting for data and then goes to no signal. I have to turn my tv on and off a few times to work. Second issue I have on both tv's if i turn them on sometimes I have to sound. I have to pause the channel or change the channel to get the sound working. Most of the time if I pause a show or play a record show I get no sound. I have a rca and a sharp tivo and they work just fine with tivo. I also have a Denon stereo with optical connected to my tivo and sound also drops out with that.

    I know this is an old thread, but I just replaced my Yamaha AVR with a Denon AVR and we notice that every once in a while we too are also losing audio after a pause with our Roamio. Seems we either have to pause/play combo real quick a few times to get it back, or like others, switch sources on the AVR.

    What Denon model did you buy? I ended up returning my Pioneer SC-97 and going back to my Onkyo. The Onkyo always has audio after a pause/RR/FF but it can be delayed for one to three seconds (i.e. no sound for a second or two after a rewind, pause) but the sound does always (eventually) return.

    I bought the Denon AVR-X2400H. TiVo Roamio running into it via HDMI and out to a Sony X930E. We also sometimes get the slight delay coming out of pause as well.....same second or two).

    I haven't found a trigger for losing sound yet. I sat and tried this morning for 30 minutes or so, pausing, trick play, FF/RR.....was able to get it to lose sound twice, but no pattern. It was a total of 4 times losing sound this morning - twice we switched inputs and twice I was able to get it back using quick pause/play a couple times.

    This Denon replaces two Yamaha's.....neither of which ever really had the issue.

    You could try feeding audio from the Roamio to the Denon via an optical cable to see if that helps. Though it made no difference to the Pioneer. Others have said you can place an optical switch of some sort so that the Denon always sees a data stream and sync is never lost. I did not try this, I just returned the Pioneer. If you can, you may just want to try another Yamaha. I'm still looking to update my Onkyo one day but whatever I buy it will be local so I can return it should the audio problem return. If you do try another AVR, post back your results.

    Yeah if it gets bad enough I might try the optical just because mine has 2 optical ports (using one for my PS4). As long as we can use the quick pause/play trick to get it back....we'll deal with it for now. We are using our Tivo less and less for show watching as Hulu has a much better picture (Comcast signal here is awful!).
