bought one of these for my gf's Panasonic 42" lcd.tv doesnt have optical output,only coax.used Rocketfish cable to hook up.anyways,after approx 6 months,we have been experiencing sound cutting out for various periods of time.i have been wiggling the cable at the back of the tv,and it seems to cure the problem.tonite though,while watching nhl playoffs,it cut out and i couldnt get it to come back on.after fiddling around with the cable and shutting off and on the remote,still nothing.then i went to the soundbar and hit the power off,then on again,this time after hitting the input button numerous times ,it finally came back on.anyone experience this problem?

I use optical out from my panasonic lcd,no trouble in 9 + months. Rocketfish is Best Buys house brand which usually seems to be.average to low quality, I would change the cable first.

i reversed the cable and so far so good,no drop outs.ive heard that about Rocketfish cables,the only reason i bought it was it was on sale cheaper than the no name brand cables.i now see why.

Beside the cable issue how does the YAS-101 sound? I will be using it more for movies and TV watching.
