Hello all, thanks for reading this. I'm an AV noob and I don't know who to turn to other than the gurus on this forum.
TV - Samsung UN60D6420UFXZC
Home theatre in a box - Samsung AH63-02244A
I want to have surround sound on my PS3, so I connect it to my HT in a box via optical and the video to TV through HDMI. When I do that, the sound plays for a few seconds then it stops for a few seconds (disabling Anynet+ or setting the TV speaker settings to external doesn't seem to make a difference, using a different optical cable doesn't either). I suspect the audio signal is jumping to different channels by itself as there is a slight popping noise when the sound comes back in or out.
After many days of trial and error, I am able to get sound continuously playing by disconnecting the HT in a box to the TV, so that they don't know each other exists. However, the sound is only playing in 2.0 (or maybe 2.1, not sure but I don't think it makes a difference in solving the problem).
Keep in mind that this setup works perfectly fine with the exception of a Vizio TV instead of the Samsung.
Once again, thank you! Hope someone here can help
