JBL Bar 5.0 on Philips 43PUS8556: Sound off for 20-60 seconds after switching channels


Novice Member
Our new JBL Bar 5.0 Multibeam on Philips 43PUS8556 gives brilliant sound.
Just hopping to the next channel, the Sound goes off for 20-60 seconds. This is longer for Satellite HD than for Freeview HD channels.
The setup is
  • Philips 43PUS8556 TV
  • JBL Bar 5.0 Multibeam
  • Connected via JBL’s HDMI cable on HDMI eArc sockets on bar and TV
Zapping satellite channels is no fun. On the next channel the sound comes on for one second, the bar shows “Dolby Surround DD”, sound goes down for 60 seconds before it comes back and stays on. (Seen for the German HD channels “Das Erste” to “ZDF”)

Channel hopping on Freeview is better, with shorter pauses of just 20 seconds (seen for BBC 1 HD to BBC 2 HD)
