Try the easisest route first - unplug and replug HDMI cable into same port or the other hdmi port on the TV. Also, make sure the Monster cable isn't HDMI 1.3 - I'm not sure the HDMI ports on this tv are fully compat with 1.3.

If that fails, go to www.usasupport.philips.com, enter your model number, click on the verison of your model ending in /37, and click on "Software & Drivers"; click on the link that says "Firmware Upgrade - Software" - read the specs and see if it says anything about audio loss on HDMI - many Philips have issues with the HDMI ports - they are not broken, but just need a software fix. Instructions are on the same page - make sure you only transfer the .upg file, not the entire zip file to a portable memory stick.
Here are the notes I see:

Are you using a SCART cable? Because, if you are, that could delay the sound/picture from the xbox to the TV.
And if you are using a SCART cable, you should try to get a HDMI cable, which has better quality aswell.
Id that's not he problem, you should check with anything else, like a dvd-player or blu-ray, if that lags aswell, because it might be the TV.
If not, then check all cables from/to the xbox.

When i try to play my x box on my sanyo tv no sound comes out of the tv


Try a different HDMI input and a different cable.

DVI is same as HDMI in regards to the picture signal, but lacks the audio.

Apparently for some reason the TV does not pick up audio and that could be because the HDMI port has a problem (say physical contact) or because the cable has a problem or (of course) because the XBOX does not output signal for some reason.

My first two picks would be the port and the cable.

hope this helps!

I have no sound from Xbox HDMI connection.


you likely connected it with one or both units involved on and HDMI does not like that--prone to all sorts of audio issues.

If in doubt unplug the units and wait and plug back up making the connections first.

Do I need a HDMI cable to get a HD picture for my XBoX 360 to my Optoma GT720 projector


Yes you do need an HDMI cable to hook your 360 to your Optoma GT720 projector, that is the only interface it has that is compatible with an xbox 360. You can get an HDMI cable for a low price though, just $6.99 from the link I have at the bottom of my answer here...

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.

No sound with HDMI cable and Xbox 360


FROM THE TOSHIBA MENU, (FIRST MAKE SURE YOU ARE SET TO
THE HDMI PORT THAT THE XBOX IS PLUGGED INTO) THEN SELECT
HDMI SETTINGS, UNPLUG HDMI CABLE FROM THE TOSHIBA TV (LCD
FLAT, MINE IS A 42") WAIT FOR THE SETTINGS TO HIGHLIGHT OR NOT
BE GRAYED OUT, THEN TURN OFF THE THREE SETTINGS, FOR COLOR
