Sony HT-NT3/HT-XT3 sound bar

I have a sony sound bar - details above - which drops out continually and occasionally it will opt back in again without any input fron the remote control.

It reverts back to the tv sound which is poor in comparison.

Any suggestions why it drops out and back in again??

In addition - the remote seems to provide little or any control - it seems to go to standby and then some time later it will kick in???

Any suggestions would be most helpful.

Stop using HDMI/ARC

Use a digital optical cable instead.

When this happens

You move to optical. If you want one last try, get Amazonbasics HDMI cable and try one last time. Do not try LONG cables. Ever for such.
