Are you using hdmi cable? is the roku connected to a receiver? if yes and it is set to 5.1 surround sound, it's possible that the movies that doesn't have any audio doesn't support surround sound. You may need to set the audio settings to stereo.

Select your needed subtitle and audio track while doing Blu-ray ripping on Mac

Because of the victory over HD DVD in the format war, Blu-ray disc has established its own reputation in this field. The one who does not have Blu-ray movie collections may be considered out of date. As a matter of fact, BD has become the symbol of high quality movies-high resolution, crystal image, and theater-like surround sound.
However, it’s uneasy to keep a large number of Blu-ray discs in a tidy way, especially when you have hundreds of discs. Due to this, backup them to your home server, or the hard disk of your Mac, or some external hard drives would be a good way to digitalize and store your BD collections. To backup Blu-ray movies, you need a Blu-ray Ripper, the thing is that most programs are unable to deal with BD subtitles and audio tracks in a correct way, or have audio and video out of sync issues, etc. Fortunately, Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac is out of this category, it is professional in converting Blu-ray subtitles and audio tracks. My great pleasure to share its step-by-step process here, hope it will be of some help for you folks who are looking for such an application.
Okay, here we go.
First of all, you can download Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac here.

Step 1: Launch this program, and load Blu-ray files to it.
You can import BD files through "DVD Folder" and "IFO File". Generally speaking, the .m2ts stream which has the longest duration would be the main movie, you can right-click on it, and then "Uncheck all", afterwards, only tick off it to convert would be OK.

Step 2: Select subtitle
Click the drop-down list of "Format", then all the subtitle info in the Blu-ray will be shown clearly, including language and stream ID, so you can select your needed language as your subtitle.

Step 3: Select audio track
Click the pull down menu of "Audio", and then the list will give you the detailed information of audio tracks, including language, audio codec, stream ID and audio channel. TrueHD audio and DTS-Master Audio are all supported.

Step 4: Click the drop-down list of "Format" to select output format
This program provides a wide range of output formats, including SD format, HD format, and videos for various multimedia devices, like iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, PS3, Archos, Motorola Droid, etc., you can select whatever format you need at will.

Step 5: Click "Settings" button to adjust audio and video parameters
All the parameters in the following window are changeable, including codec name, bit rate, aspect ratio, frame rate, sample rate, and channels. You can adjust these items to make good control of your output file quality and file size.

Step 6: Click "Convert" button to start BD ripping
Once finished, you can click "Open" button to find out the output files with your selected subtitle and audio stream with ease.

Can you suggest me the websites to download games and movies

Downloading anything that is not public domain or freeware is illegal and will not be discussed here.
Crackle, Hulu, and YouTube all offer streaming full-length studio movies for free, sometimes without commercials.
Games can be downloaded from any number of sites. Steam is particularly good and free to use in many cases.

After installing Windows, you need to install the laptop's device drivers (this includes the audio driver).
You can download the device drivers from the laptop manufacturer's WEB site, select your model laptop to download the drivers.

42in insignia tv im trying to watch a movie and there is no sound how do i get it on

Try going into the Audio Settings and set the digital audio to PCM.

If the movie you are trying to watch is the only movie this happens with, try pressing the audio button on the DVD remote to change the audio stream.

You should also set yout DVD players audio output to PCM as well.

Hope this helps!
