HDMI Switch sound cuts out
I have a very similar issue and I am not sure if it is how I hooked everything up.
I wanted to simplify everything and recently replaced my AV receiver with a Vizio soundbar. I bought a HDMI 4 port switch to replace what my Receiver was doing. Now my sound drops here and there just a second. Sometime it happens in seconds and other times it takes a few min.
I have a Vizio TV and a Vizio Soundbar (sb4051) that is connected to the HDMI port 1 (Arc). I just bought the ETEKCITY HDMI switch (Model HDS-9419). I have this connected to HDMI 2 on the tv. Is this correct or should I run the switch to the HDMI in on the soundbar and the HDMI Arc port on the soundbar to the HDMI 1 port (arc) on the TV.
I am at the point to return the HDMI switch and buy a different brand but something tells me it is not the switch but the setup.
