Difficulty changing channels u

I have just bought a new Sony Bravia and every time I change channel on my remote the sound on the tv goes silent. I have to switch the tv off and on and the sound reruns until the next channel change. Does anyone have the same problem and has overcome it ?

Yes this happens intermittently every day. Sometimes I have to switch the tv off to get sound

Re: Difficulty changing channels u

Do you use the Virgin Remote to control the TV as well or just the V6 box?

To add to this all I basically use the Sony remote to switch on and off the tv. I might adjust the sound very occasionally

Re: Difficulty changing channels u

Can you try this, to see if it helps,

 

1. Go to Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Devices > Remote Control Pairing.

 

2. Press and hold the Info button for 7 seconds until the light at the top of the remote goes solid green then flashes green twice.

Re: Difficulty changing channels u

This is a long standing issue with the TiVO and some televisions. What is happening is that the TV/TiVO communication is going wrong and the handshake over HDMI between the two fails. I get it with my new LG TV, actually a little more frequently than with the previous LG TV - but the problem has always been there. It is not soluble (AFAIK) because I suspect different TV manufacturers and TiVO have slightly different implementations of the HDMI handshake protocols.

Re: Difficulty changing channels u

Thankyou I suspected as much as I had the same problem on a minor scale with my old Sony Bravia.
