Question about home Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Why doesn't the ARC TV sound work through the HDMI cable? Is it because the KDL-52XBR7 only has the Bravia Sync and no ARC support?

I just installed the BDV-E3100 Home Theater and the TV sound would not work through the HDMI cable. I had to install a Digital Optical cable between the TV and the Home Theater to get the home theater sound to work. The Blu-ray DVDs, Bluetooth to iPhone, Internet sound all work. The TV sound would not come on - it would try and displayed a message - connecting to external speakers - but no sound. Had to click TV/Audio on the Home Theater remote to switch the TV back to it's internal speakers. What a pain - I am guessing the Home Theater ARC - Audio Response Control will not work with the TV Bravia Sync over the HDMI cable. My only solution is to install a digital optical cable from the TV Audio out to the Digital Optical port on the BDV-E3100 to hear the TV sound on the home theater system. Anyone have any suggestions???

The Bravia menu comes up across my screen. It will go off when I hit any button on the remote & then come back on. the model # is KDL-32EX301. How do I get it to go away?

It's caused by the Bravia Sync feature. It doesn't always connect correctly. When there are issues then attempts to sync up cause the menu to appear.

The solution is to switch off Bravia Sync.

Go in to the TV's set-up menu, and choose HDMI Set-up.
Scroll down the menu list and choose Control for HDMI, then set the menu option to OFF

Let us know if that fixes the problem for you.

Sony Bravia KDL 52Z5100 - no sound only picture. HDMi cable works fine with another TV, so no probs with cable TV.

A short fix is to unplug the hdmi cable and shut down the tv compleetly, then get the tv on and plug it in, the tv see the new connection and reset the value's for sound

No sound on pc connection

HDMI outputs from devices such as DVD players do carry both video and audio, but the HDMI output from your computer video card only carries video. You'll need to connect a cable from the computer sound output to the TV as well.
