Weird loss of sound


Active Member
I have had my current set-up for a few months now, but suddenly it's started doing odd things.
I have my new(ish) Panasonic TX-55HZ1000B, Virgin V6 box, Blu-ray player and Yamaha RX-V377 amp connected on an arc, and apart from having to reset the Vieria link on the TV to send sound through the amp, all has been fine. However, I am suddenly experiencing a situation whereby although the TV sound comes through the amp, when I switch to watching Netflix or Amazon, the speaker icons drop off the amp's screen and no sound comes out. I then found that if I take the amp out of AV1 input and then switch back in, sound appears!
Any ideas of what might be going wrong here?

HDMI handshake issues. Select away and back forces a new handshake.

Odd though that the TV tuner works and then not the Apps over the same ARC connection (if I've read how you're connected/using the system correctly).

Check out if any hdmi/spdif out options on the TV affect how it works?
