As others have said when using other sources, we don't have a problem. However the Minute the 360 Box is turned on it corrupts all my TV and Soundbar settings, yet Virgin still refuse to take responsibility and correct the obvious problems with their equipment. I've even had a engineer from Virgin come out and admit it's a problem with their box, but then stating they haven't got a clue how to fix it. So it seems they arnt bothered. Oh well I'm sure they will be when I cancel the TV part of my package at the end of my contract, until they take responsibility and fix the issue.
From what I’ve been reading on here, I’m a lot happier knowing it’s not just me having issues with sound bars not working. Same issue, sound defaults to TV speaker every time the TV is switched on. No such problem with my V6 before the 360 upgrade. Virgin needs to take ownership of this problem and fix it. “3rd party equipment” excuse is no longer acceptable
So come on then Virgin, when are you actually going to take responsibility and do something about the faults that are clearly being caused by your 360 Box. We pay decent money so instead of just ignoring the problem why don't you actually investigate all the complaints and do something about them.
Reading quickly through this thread the posters who are having problems appear to have their soundbars connected via HDMI. There should be no issue with this but obviously there is. Just wondering if they have tried removing the HDMI connection between their soundbar and TV or 360 box and used an optical connection between their soundbar and TV.
In reply to Ruth. Why should we have to lower the sound quality by resorting to an optical cable. I would imagine most people have spent a lot of money on Soundbars and TVs to be able to enjoy Dolby Atmos via HDMI 2.1 and earc. This works with every other source attached, so this clearly points to a problem with the Virgin 360 box. So surely Virgin should be looking to solve the problem rather than the usual, "have you tried different cables, have you tried turning it off and back on again" "Well yes of course we've tried all that Virgin, so just solve the god damm problem"
