Sound gets distorted after Tv been on a while

Had my V6 box about a week now, Everything was ok but last night after watching Tv for about a couple of hours the sound started to distort like the people talking were darleks. Turned off the box and restarted and everything was fine again. Then about a hour later started again. Turned of box again and all fine. Noticed it has started again today is there anything i can do to rectify this problem?

Does putting the V6 into standby for a period fix it?

Hi Printerelf,

yes it does, put it into standby mode for 20 seconds and the sound goes back to normal. Trouble is it is happening more frequent now maybe once every hour.

Re: Sound gets distorted after Tv been on a while

I wonder if there's a component in either the TV or the V6 which is misbehaving.

Does the problem go away if you put the TV into standby (leaving the V6 on)?

Hi are able to plug it into a different tv if you have the same problem with second set ask for v6 to be exchanged.

Identical issues here - need to switch tv on/off every 30 mins or so - occurring only since TV6 box added...

Re: Sound gets distorted after Tv been on a while

Can try this:

Check  Settings > Audio > Dolby Digital.

It you have a 5.1 surround sound system connected to TiVo - use 'Dolby Digital' - otherwise use 'Dolby Digital to PCM'

==================================
V6 TiVo (with MRS)
VIVID 350 Optical Fibre (350/20mb) in Area 31
SkyQ Silver Bundle (UHD)
