audio drops out every periodically for few seconds using ARC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi
I have connected my KDL55HX820 sony 3d tv with an Onkyo ST3400 home theater system.All connections are HDMI. All cables are brand new.
The connections are made as per the onkyo manual: PS3 goes to game input on the AVR, satellite to CABLE input and HDMI out from the AV receiver goes to the ARC HDMI input on the TV.

The all audio + video (satellite, PS3) going from the AV receiver to the TV works fine.
However if I try to use the audio return channel: netflix, pandora TV apps then every couple of minutes or couple of seconds the audio cuts out for a few seconds. The video is fine throughout.
I found a thread which reports something similar

however the resolution seemed to have been cable was too short and a poor connection was the cause. However in my case cable length is ample.
The TV is brand new with latest firmware updates. I really doubt its the cable.
Note that the cables from the PS3 and satellite to the AV receiver are the mediabridge V1.4 ultraseries
however the cable connected to the ARC input of the TV from the HDMI out of the Onkyo AV receiver is the cable provided by the satellite company, therefore i do not know the version of the cable
Could it have something to do with the version of the cable? In that case wouldnt the symptom be that the ARC wouldn't work at all.
Thanks
Anyhelp would be appreciated

It's not the cable. (There's no such thing as a 1.4 cable. Versions refer to the devices, not the cables.)

Have you tried an optical connection from the TV to the AVR instead of using ARC? If that also has audio dropouts, you'll know the problem is the TV output, not the physical path being used to feed the audio.
