Well it sounds like I should give that a try and a big THAN YOU for both finding this out and sharing it here. I assume that your apps re-loaded once you singed in with your Amazon account? I'm also certain that it would require signing back in to all the apps such as Netflix, Hulu, etc. Now you originally said you had volume problems with the sound bar, that was connected via HDMI correct? So if it was a sound bar via HDMI then that rules out anything exclusively wrong with the optical/digital audiio out.............

That one thing you described, where the volume is low and slowly comes back up.............that's happened to us a LOT. Thanks for clearing that up for me I thought you were only usilng a sound bar via the HDMI ARC connection. It's good to know you were usilng an optical cable. I'm just curious since I do not have a sound bar,,,,,,,, I know what they are but now aware of their function..........is that used to replace the sound coming from the TV speakers (obviously at a higher quality), I'm assuming it connects via optical cable to the optical OUT of your A/V receiver? and do you have any other speakers connected to that A/V receiver?

Has anyone tried jfsbndr's solution? I'm having this exact problem when using the TV's built in speaker and am curious if the solution provided by jfsbndr has worked for anyone else.

I agree with your findings and came to the same conclusion when I tried the built in tv speakers and there was NO problem, but anything involving optical/digital out (TosLink) DOES produce the problem, even DVD's/BluRay. NEWS: there was major update to the TV software tonight that took awhile to install, required one automatic restart, and a secondary manual re-runing of the update procedure from the menu......... all updates would have been automatic overnight as it said on the display that they would happen when the TV was not in use. The bad news, after the update, I STILL have the problem. I'm going to eventually bite the bullet and do your "wipe" or what I would call, master reset procedure.

We recently purchased a Toshiba Firestick TV (43 in). I use DirectTVNow, Hulu and NetFlix. On DirectTVNOW, the volume on commercials jumps up to like FULL BLAST...then if you wait patiently the program will come back on and be normal. Hulu doesn't seem to have this same problem, although admittedly I am just using their free first month trial to see if I like it.
I have rebooted the TV MANY times, nothing fixes this other than to just wait for the commercial to go off. So, I we end up muting the commercials or whatever. Talk about a bad issue...the commercials (which they all want you to watch) find us racing to the TV to shutdown the volume, and we simply don't watch any.
I can't find many options to set volume on the TV or deal with this. i tried to read through all the other posts, does a sound bar correct this issue? Most everyone elses scenarios seemed to be "show to show"...while I do see some volume changes, it is NOTHING like the Commercial BLAST.
