Here's my shorter list.
1. Remove the shipping caps from the ends of the cable.
2. Get out the canned air and give the ports a very short blast.
3. Send PCM stereo as 5.1 can cut out.
My husband bought a new sound bar from Best Buy for Christmas, and from the day we installed it to our Samsung Smart TV, the sound has been cutting out. It's connected via fiber optic cable. It's maybe only for an 1/8 of a second, but it happens intermittently when we watch TV and it is driving me absolutely insane. I have looked through other posts and have seen several other people post the same thing. What I can not find, however, is a resolution to said problem, and if I don't find one quickly, this sound bar is going back in the box and back to Best Buy.
Does anyone know what I can do to solve this problem?
