The 360 box wasn't around in 2016.

For Sound issues go to Setting > Audio & Video - try setting Dolby Audio to always convert. You can also try different settings such as follow content or disabled

If you are using a sound bar try connecting the 360 to a TV HDMI port without ARC.
If you are connected to a HDMI ARC connector on the TV try connecting to a non ARC HDMI connector, using ARC has been a problem for some people.

Then if you are using  fibre optic straight from the 360 to your sound bar, set Dolby to Follow Content.

Re: Audio stops and mouths out of sync

Unfortunately the sound being out of sync is the norm for the 360 software. I'm starting to thing the 360 means 360m/s out of sync. You can play around with the sounds settings to your hearts content and you might get close. But the elephant in the room that the fan boys won't mention is dolby digital is broken. It supposedly being looked at but I'm not holding my breath.

Re: Audio stops and mouths out of sync

Worth mentioning all the "work arounds" such as changing the way your equipment is set up shouldn't even be a solution when current setups work with other devices/pre 360 upgrades. It's obviously the 360 software at fault but nobody wants to.fix it.

Re: Audio stops and mouths out of sync

Thanks after switching on and off a few settings it seems to have worked. 

Not sure this should have to be done after the provider has supposed to have set the system up.

But appreciate the help .

Re: Audio stops and mouths out of sync

Can I refer you to the many other topic titles regarding the same problem, particularly 'Audio Sync Problem with 360 Box' with over 6,000 views. The Virgin 360 Box does not support Dolby Audio functionality and to synchronize the sound and picture you have to 'Disable' the Dolby audio. This negates the function of any high quality soundbar. Virgin Media are not acknowledging or responding to complaints regarding this fault, presumably because the commercial implications are major?

Re: Audio stops and mouths out of sync

An interesting read on the ziggo forums - you will need to translate it from Dutch to English.
