Hey there! The last couple of days on my roku, radio paradise will play and then the sound will stop - usually when a message comes on that "you are listening to radio paradise". I can close out of the app and restart, but the same thing will happen minutes later. The photos still keep going, but not the sound. Anyone have this issue also?
 

I get that now and then when my latency goes really high (we have a wireless link that sometimes gets off kilter). Mine usually recovers on its own after a couple of minutes.

Bill,

We've been listening to RP on Roku players for over 12 years now. We currently are using a Roku Express (HDMI out to our TV for the slideshow and audio out to our 2-channel amp).  Over the last few years we have been having an issue with the audio stream stopping. We have to reselect RP on the Roku home screen and then we get a 'buffering' message. The audio restarts but fails soon after. This used to happen a few times a day but now happens every few minutes, making listening to RP untenable. We also have a Roku/TCL TV and the same thing happens when we try to listen to RP with that device. When we listen to RP with our Echo, there is no issue. So, it definitely appears to be a compatibility issue between RP and Roku, as opposed to a problem with our internet speed, WiFi signal, or individual Roku device. We are hoping that there is a technical fix for this as, for now, we have stopped trying to listen to RP. Also, if you have any suggestions for a different, better device that we could use to stream RP (with HDMI out and RCA compatible audio out), we would love to know about it, especially if we could get better audio quality.
 

Our Roku app definitely works better than that for most people. But it is old, and lacking a lot of features. 

You'll have much better results — and higher quality audio — with either FireTV or AppleTV. 
 

Any idea how to connect the FireTV  to our 2-channel amp?
 

How about the audio output on your TV? That's how I do it. Most have both analog (rca) & digital (optical) out. 
 

OK, thanks!
