V6 sound issue on SD channels only

Hi, firstly thanks for the assistance from Tidus and Kippies on my HDCP issue (still not happy but have manages a workaround with strict power down/up routine) I now have an issue with sound disappering totally on SD channels. No sound whatsoever on the channels and menu, which resetting the box had no effect. No diagnostic symptoms BUT turning both TV and box to standby and turning back on seemed to remedy it but only on one occasion. Otherwise happy with a switch from SKY other than a few adjustment issues that are my preferences but I am very disappointed so far with the issues I've had with the box in one week. Any help is appreciated.

Re: V6 sound issue on SD channels only

Hi mrcleanhair, 

 

Thanks for your post and apologies to hear you are having an issue getting the sound to stabilise on your new V6 box Smiley Sad

 

As it's only happening with SD channels and not all channels, we need to do a little more investigative work on this one. 

 

Just so I can understand your current set up, how are you connecting your TV to the V6 box? 

Do you have any sound equipment connected like a sound bar or surround sound?

What settings do you have your sound set up on currently? 

 

Come back and let us know so we can help further. 

 

Thanks,

Re: V6 sound issue on SD channels only

Hi Kate,
Thanks for the reply. Having had some other issues as well as this, ie no picture on start up and doing some research it appears it may be a HDCP issue. Restarting the box and TV in a certain sequence resolves the issue. I dont feel the solution is acceptable for a brand new box. It appears this HDCP issue is widespread. Is Virgin aware of this issue and is there any updates coming to resolve it? My connection is just HDMI straight to the tv. I don't feel buying a new TV is an acceptable situation so if you could let me know how we can resolve I would appreciate it. I think the Virgin package is great but this is starting to make me wonder if switching from Sky was the best decision.
