Simmensesq,

Does this happen on all inputs, or just with a cable/sat box?

So far only when Cable attached, however I have external headphones attached to cable box and get audio perfectly when this happens, eliminating the cable box as a problem in my mind.

Simmensesq,

It sounds crazy, but try this. Call your cable/sat company and ask that they either update or refresh the box. Often times, this does the trick.

The headphones idea is completely logical. However, if the issue is how the signal is being transmitted to or through the HDMI, or if the problem is an outdated firmware, the analog headphones may work fine while the digital signal is being affected.

In many cases, this simple task fixes the issue, and most companies can do that over the phone.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
