Sky HD Intermittent Sound

Hi all

Looking for some help/advice please.

Got my Sky HD hooked up to a Samsuing Blu Ray 2.1 Surround Sound in a box. Connected via decent HDMi cables and via Optical cable Blu Ray to Sky box!!

Problem is when I watch Sky movies etc through surround system the sound keeps going off and on for maybe a second or two at a time !!

Dont have a prob when watching DVD/Blu Ray as sound is fantastic, prob only when watching Sky.

Please help before I go nuts ha ha

I have had problems before with the optical connector on the Sky box. Can you induce the fault by jiggling around with the optical cable where it goes into the Sky box?

Hi

Its strange because sometimes i move cable around and i think its causing the intermittent sound then other times i move it around and it has zero effect !!!

Easiest thing to do is to replace the optical cable - they are as cheap as chips.
