Greetings. First time poster here.
I recently purchased this bar from Walmart for use with a Samsung 32" 720p television, primarily for my Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles. I also purchased an optical cable. Initially I had the bar plugged into the television but in an effort to fix the problem I'm about to list, I've tried having it plugged directly into the consoles as well. No avail.
Anyway, my problem is twofold. Firstly, and I've only noticed this in the past few days so I'm thinking it might be a defective product, but I'm getting some static and general sound messing-up sometimes. I don't have the volume terribly high so I doubt that's the problem.
Also, the sound likes to cut out entirely frequently whenever I boot up some of my 360 games. It will remain on until I press start but then it cuts out entirely. I have to reboot, at which point it often works. Very odd.
I think I'll try exchanging this one for another tomorrow. But if anyone should reply before then with some surprisingly helpful advice, it would be appreciated.
