Question about Sony BRAVIA® DAV-HDX576WF Theater System with Wireless Speakers

2 Answers

Rear S-Air speakers cutting in and out

Hello all,

I have a Sony Bravia HDX-576WF home theater system, with the S-Air wireless speakers and receiver. The wireless speakers keep cutting in and out. This happens regardless of what mode the system is in (Pro Logic, Multi). When the speakers cut out, the green LED on the front of the wireless receiver flashes on and off (which I believe means it is looking for a signal; it glows steadily green when the speakers are working). The switch on the back of the S-Air receiver is switched to "A", the only switch position in which the speakers will work.

Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? The S-Air receiver is only about 10 feet away from the system, and is in clear view (not buried by magazines, fast food bags, cats, etc.). I have placed it low, on an end table, and high, on a bookshelf, and the problem still persists.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I have a similar problem. I just switched out my HDMI cable for a Sony brand HDMI cable and still have my problem (S-Air works in AM/FM and Non-HD channels and not for HD channels, DVD or in AM/FM when TV is turned on). Although my problem is a little different. I just have the HDMI cable connecting my home theater system and my tv. As soon as I turn the TV on the green light blinks and the surround speakers stop working.
    Everything seems to work just fine when I just use my video (red, white, yellow) cable instead of HDMI. The only thing that doesn't work is the radio display doesn't display on the TV. Any ideas on my issue?

    Sony support wants me to ship the system back to Texas. I think I may just replace my HDMI cable with component and be done with it though.
    Am I really missing that much if I use component rather than HDMI?

I read on another review that the HDMI cable is causing this problem because it is beside the S-Air transmitter on the main unit. I could not get my rear speakers to pair or work, and sure enough, when I removed the HDMI cable and hooked up the unit via Component Video to my Sony 52" XBR TV, the speakers paired and worked. When I plugged the HDMI cable in they did not work. I am going to try to purchase a higher-end, more expensive HDMI cable and see if that helps. The whole point of HDMI is for true blue ray 1080p pictures. Hope this helps.

With H.D.M.I. cable you still have to hook up audio out from t.v. or dvr converter box to the surround system audio in.

Also wireless ohones, baby monitors etc. can interfere with signal. You can try using b. or c, channels, and repairing. Both main unit and s- air sub unit must be on same channel a,b, or c.

The S-Air receiver for this unit DAV-HDX576WF cuts out when i bring it upstairs. Ive read that it should go alot farther. Please Help!

Most of the distance mentioned in ads and manuals are direct line of sight. As the number of walls between the transmitter and receiver increase the range keeps dropping drastically. Its not the distance but the obstacles that come in between that matter.

Are the wireless turned on and configured to work?

Check settings and batteries.

Maybe it would be best to run wired?

If not try what I have said before.
