TV is = Panasonic Viera TX-L42E5B LCD HD 1080p Smart TV
Soundbar = Orbitsound T12v3 iPod Dock/Home Cinema Sound Bar

Set my new soundbar up over the weekend and eveything worked fine straight away. TV through SKY HD, streaming video from Media Server, and playing XBOX 360.

When it came to playing something via Netflix (smart TV app) through the soundbar, the sound does not work. All I can hear is a very distorted noise. This does not happen through the regular TV speakers.

I have this connected via an optical cable.

I have seen a few posts re this, but have not come across any solutions.

Does anybody have any ideas or have solved this issue?

Is it the 5.1 audio? If so it's probably DD+, and if your system can't decode DD+ you won't get any audio. You need to switch the audio track to stereo if that is the case.
