Sound cutting out on terrestrial

Lately there has been maintenance in my area, since which my sound occasionally cuts out. It's not often, maybe once every 5 plus minutes, so far on BBC 1, 2 or channel 4. But when the sound cuts out during conversation it's really annoying. Not the first time this has happened either. I need Virgin to start justifying it's pay rises it keeps inflicting.

Re: Sound cutting out on terrestrial

Is this on the SD or HD channels? All the channels you've mentioned have both..

I've watched an SD channel and not noticed it. But not watched them all. Seems like it is primarily the HD channels.

Re: Sound cutting out on terrestrial

How do you get your TV sound - is it using HDMI, optical via some A/V kit?

Are your audio settings using Dolby or PCM? Home > Help & Settings > Settings > Audio

Re: Sound cutting out on terrestrial

Thanks for the replies, sorry I'm late getting back.

I use optical out via TV, to an optical switcher connected to my speaker decoder. It's been like this for years. Obviously it's a good call, cos it's not a usual setup and has many parts. But my TV's Netflix app never gives me issue, just the TiVo. This issue has happened on an off over the years for a long time.

I'll turn thing on andquantitative easing, off, have a fiddle with cables and get back if I have anything exciting or useful to tell.
