- Surround sound weirdness ~ Help!
We’ve got a Samsung tv and a Panasonic 5.1 surround sound set up running through the HDMI arc cable. The sound breaks down leaving it sounding “squelchy”. I can reset it by unplugging it all and leaving it switched off for 10-15mins, but it will at some point fail again. I’ve tried a different hdmi cable, no difference. I could run an optical cable which I did with the older tv, but ARC means we only have to use one controller. The optical meant you had to go into the Panasonic system first before accessing the tv content and you still controlled the volume via the Panasonic remote.Posted 5 months ago
Why are you running ARC? is it because you don’t have a set top box for your normal TV so want to return the sound? If not and you do have a set top box (Sky, BT etc) then try a different non-ARC HDMI socket. I’ve had issues with the ARC socket before – i’ve never really got into the dark art of ARC as i’ve never really needed it, but have had issues when just using it as a normal HDMI input.Posted 5 months ago
