I’m having the same issue with no sound at start. Started after I upgraded to 14.7 on my Apple TV. Forward/backward and audio select will start the sound. Continuous series has sound on every episode but if I back out and start the episode again, no sound.

  1. A Sonos Arc soundbar and Apple TV 2021 connected to my LG 65B6.
  2. Tried both audio formats, Auto and Dolby Digital, with the same result.

Thanks everyone for testing so far!

We have may identified the issue, and are working to track down the root cause.

For those on TestFlight, if you could download the new 3759 update from TestFlight (released today) and follow the same process described above it would super-helpful.

@james - I checked on TestFlight and couldn’t download the new 3759 - still shows 3758…

Sorry, should be working now.

I need a new invitation code please (I uninstalled the beta version yesterday because it required a new subscription every time I wanted to watch a movie).

New invite sent.

FYI, you can reinstall the App Store version without unenrolling from the TestFlight beta. This would allow you to install future versions from TestFlight once a fix is implemented.

Thanks, @james. The diagnostic report has been generated and uploaded. Diagnostics code 2VPRY landed to the request (#136971).

I’m happy to test as well. Please send an invite.

I’m having the same sound issues as others have described…except it works fine with Dolby Atmos tracks, 4K and 1080p, but no sound with anything else.

No sound after updating ATV from 14.6 to 14.7. It was working fine previously.
Infuse build 3762.

There is sound in ATV menus (clicks and such.)
Plex works fine.

Does it not have any audio even after the skipping forward or back like the other sorund reports? Nothing brings it back?

Skipping back brought the sound back, thanks for the tip! :+1:

Known issue. I moved your post to a currently running thread on this issue. :wink:

Same problem here too. Never had this bug before. Apple TV 4K 2017 and Sony TV XE900.
