I have reported this to Uverse (AT&T) and they have sent 3 different repairmen out (they don't know what to look for unless it happens while they are here or so they say) and it is still not fixed. Could it be the tv and not the Uverse connection ?

Re: distorted sound comes and goes
I am going to give you the best solution for this problem, not even sharp techs know what the problem is, the only solution is to get the sound from a separate receiver, let me make myself clear, get the audio out put from the satellite or cable box. and connect it to a receiver with separate speakers. the problem is in the sound card and to replace it cost $260.00 + labor and you gonna have the same problem in a few months or it could last a year or 2 two days, who knows, don't waist your money trying to repair it. i have done 3 so far and that is the only solution good luck

It could be that or a loose wire to one side of the speakers in the set. If it does it often enough locate where the actual sound for each side of the set is located---when it does it get close and listen---if one side is low or distorted you know it is either a connection or speaker on that side OR since most sets have a left and right channel for sound--the issue is in one side.(circuit problem)
We just had the same problem with our tv, we switched tv's and it still didn't work. We reset our att uverse box, and the sound works. I don't know how direct TV works, but the problem may lie there instead of your TV
The remote can't recognize the tv, it doesn't have that capability. If you want to use it to command that tv you must program it accordingly. Basically you must introduce the code that corresponds to the set of commands that your tv uses - if they are present in the remote. This is the programming procedure: 1 - hold down the TV button on the Uverse remote. As you are holding the TV button, press and release the OK button. You know you have done this right when all the mode keys flash twice. 2 - Find the 4 digit code for your device in the User guide that was given you when the Uverse was set up, or online at
3 - At this point, the TV mode button should flash three times. Try to turn the TV off by pushing the power button. If it does not turn off, try a different code. If it turns off then turn it on with the remote and test the other buttons. If they don't work then try a new code.There are a lot of codes for Samsung in there, try them all until you find the one that has the best compatibility - most buttons that can be used. 4 - If none of the codes for your device work, try manually searching for a code. Go back and repeat steps 1 and 2. Then enter 922. Hold play as the remote cycles through various codes. When your TV turns off, push enter to memorize it. This generic code will provide just a basic control, if you really need full control then you will need another remote.
It's not your TV. It is your data stream coming from the converter box. Audio is processed and sent very easily whereas video takes processing time, hence the delay. If you have separated you audio from video utilizing an external surround sound system, you must channel your video through the same processor. Very complicated if you don't know how to do all this stuff. Could originate with your provider as well. Cable, satellite, uverse, cat, coax, etc.
Can you please describe the problem with a little bit more detail? Are you saying that the pictures are coming up with a ghost effect? When the pictures are freezing what exactly do you mean, as in when changing inputs you can still see the picture there but gradually goes away?
AT&T don't list any codes for Hannspree, but I have it on good authority that either code 1004 or 1018 work for Hannspree. Others have reported that the some of the codes for Vizio TVs will also work. There are: 1489, 1429, 1433, 1439
If none of these codes work, please let me know and I'll try to find some alternatives. It would help if you could let me know the model number of your TV to narrow my search.
I'd also be grateful if you could let me know which, if any, of the above codes worked for future reference.
