Question

TV Loses sound when enhancing HDMI to 4k Enhancement.

by Brandon Earnsberger / May 15, 2016 7:55 AM PDT

I Just bought a 65in Sony 65x810c 4K. I have ATT Uverse. I updated the hdmi cords that ran behind my call, about 20 feet in length. Picture and sound worked great. However when I select to Enhance to 4k through the input options. I get picture but no sound.

Any help would be appreciated

Back to Sony.

It's their code and TV so report this bug and then decide if this is the make/break decision to keep or return the set.

My thought is that you are enhancing some copy protected content. I can't confirm but it's possible this is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinavia

You might get around this by running the content to a receiver that will handle the sound and then the video passes through the receiver and the TV only has to deal with the video.

No I am only trying to enhance the content from the att U verse box

I'm sure Sony and ATT will point fingers. A receiver will likely be the cure.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
