I have a sound problem with my Playbar, apparently only with TV and not when I'm listen to music. There is a choppy sound, also in my two Sonos:1 (surround) and I have to unplug the Playbar and reconnect it to stop this problem. This happens about every two to three days. This is really annoying...

Hi, Cococo. Is it possible that the audio format of the television is changing, thus causing this? Are you connected via optical or HDMI-ARC? Following an occurrence of this issue, please submit a diagnostic and respond with the confirmation number. Many thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Thanks for sending in the report. Unfortunately it came through with some formatting errors. Can you send a new one in and reply here with the number?

Thanks, this report came through properly. I don't see any specific errors which would explain the choppy audio. Can you try bypassing your TV by wiring the optical connection from the Playbar directly into your cable box? Do you still hear the choppy audio in this setup?

Thanks. Ok I'll try this but it's not a solution for me because I would not have the sound of Sonos on my TV for Youtube, external hard drive discs, etc.

Same problem with this configuration... Diagnostic : 2017521350
This configuration was made with another optical cable, so the cable is not the problem...
