No Tv sound with Sony STR-DN1080


Novice Member
When I try watch hulu or any other samsung smart hub app I get no sound through the speakers connected to my Sony STR-dn1080. However, if I turn the str-dn1080 off then on while a movie is being played through one of the various apps, then I'm able to get sound. I don't have cable or satellite so I can't test sound using those.

The tv and receiver are connected to each other via their respective eARC hdmi ports.

If anyone can help me with this problem, I'd greatly appreciate it.


Welcome to the Forum.

That sounds (pun unintended) like an initial handshake problem. I would suggest trying a different HDMI lead. Turning off and back on is forcing a better handshake. There have been some handshake issues mentioned with Samsung TVs even with eARC.
