I've been finding quite a few HDMI related problems over the past year and it seems to be increasing. The problem usually is due to the cable being somewhat heavy. The plug sticks straight in and hangs. The weight of the cable uses the downward momentum and starts ripping the solder connections from the televisions HDMI input. When the audio becomes distorted, try moving the cable and see if it clears up. If it does, then, that's the problem. If not, then the problem is more than likely the audio circuit. Either way the Main PCB needs to be replaced. After replacing the Main board, I suggest using component inputs instead (Same quality picture, just more cords), because, the chances of another problem caused by HDMI is likely. Hope this helps.

How do I connect a virgin v box to an old lg model?

The hdmi cable would not be compatible with your old style TV, if the Virgin box has a scart socket then that is your best option!

I had the same problem and after buying loads of different cables came to the conclusion that the HDMI input on the TV was at fault. Bit of a sledgehammer to crack a nut but I upgraded my home cinema amp to one that had HDMI in/out and now I put the sound through that and use the TV as a panel with volume turned to zero.

How do i connect Panasonic sc PT480 home theater Panasonic lcd tv Panasonic Blu Ray and Virgin V+ box. I have lots of cables but have got totally confused.

Ok, so first, you need to get the pictures to the TV. So, you should have an HDMI lead from the Bluray to the TV. You should have either an HDMI or SCART lead from the Virgin Box to the TV. If you are going to play and DVD's from the Home Theater system, this too needs a scart to the TV, but if you are planning to use the bluray for all playing back, then this is not needed. Next, you want to get the sound from all your equipment to the home theater system. This where it can get confusing, as there are different types of leads that do the same thing. If your TV has an 'Optical Out', and the Theater system has an 'Optical In' then you can connect the two with a Fibre-optic cable, and that means that anything then that you have on the screen, can have the sound through your surround sound. Digital Coaxial In's/outs do the same thing, as do Phono In's/Outs, but phono cables will not carry 5.1 digital. I hope this helps!
