I have SAME audio skip problem when listening to Galaxy Music channels on a std digital box tried MANY. Box changes. Tightened connections, changed cable etc etc
ROGERS not coming thru with a Solution. Very Frustrating
Yours is a completely different problem than the original posters Ajutan.
I posted a reply in the other thread you commented on.
MartianMan, I have the exact same problem. I have the Explorer 8642 HD PVR and it randomly loses audio. Just like in your case, if I turn my TV off and on, the sound comes back. Here's what I've done to try to resolve this problem:
- hard reboot (unplugged terminal for 5 minutes)
- factory reset
- changed audio settings from variable to fixed * from narrow to normal
- tried different HDMI cables
- tried different HDMI ports on TV
None of this has worked. I'm going to swap the HDMI cable with a component cable to see if that makes a difference. At first I thought the terminal was defective but since the sound comes back after I power off and then power on the TV, I'm wondering if the problem is poor signal strength as someone else mentioned in this thread.
If you're able to figure out what the problem is please let us know and I'll do the same.
what I have noticed is that some recordings when played back the volume fluctuates, it goes from loud to really low and cant hardly hear what they are saying, and then all of a sudden it becomes loud again and then it goes low again, whats up with that crap???
Its the 8642HD PVR and I am using Component Cables, it has nothing to do with the cables, cause live tv is fine, its just when playing back recorded shows. It must be the screwed up box as usual...
I did all those things too, and the only setting that made any impact was changing the video mode from FIXED to HDMI/Variable. I can now enjoy all TV channels without having the sound go *poof* any more. Only downside is that the STD TV picture is stretched to the full width of the screen. A small price to pay for us as we tend not to watch too many STD TV channels.
I haven't really checked out the video settings. I'll check if the terminal I have has the same HDMI/Variable option. I've switched to component cable and so far the sound has not gone away.
Changing that audio setting didn't resolve the problem for me. However, since I switched to component cable I haven't had any problems.
