JBL 5.1 Soundbar self-muting problem
I know this is a long shot because there probably aren't that many of these new soundbars out there. JBL tech support was no help as it "is not a known problem".
The problem is that on an intermittent basis, the soundbar will mute and the only way to get sound is to hold down either the volume up or down buttons continuously. Of course, this just makes the volume raise or lower till you release it, and then there is no sound.
The only solution I've found is to cycle the source (input) from the HDMI 1 Arc source though all the sources and back to the HDMI 1 Arc source, then the sound returns normally.
Any input on how to fix this or identify the problem would be greatly appreciated.
