8K 700T sound issues with Bose Soundbar 700

Hello, I have a QE65Q700TAT tv, connected to a Bose Soundbar 700 Via HDMI. 

I have a few problems when switching between live TV, Now TV, Netflix and other apps. Each app seems to have a different lip sync delay and sounds different, Netflix currently sounds like the sound is coming through a pipe, Now TV is very quiet and you struggle to hear dialogue, where as Live TV sounds okay. I have tested the soundbar setup via playing music directly and the sound is crystal clear. I have tried various HDMI cables to see if that fixes the issues but it has not. I am currently using an AudioQuest Carbon HDMI cable.

@Jc19 @Are you using the ARC HDMI ports?

 

Check in your TV Audio settings. Anything unusual?

No nothing unusual, I’ve tried turning off EARC and tried setting the output to PCM, still the same issues occur

@Jc19 @Does your TV have a receiver audio or ext speaker option?

 

Have you tried leaving EARC on?

 

Seems like your TV is not adjusting to the different sources codecs.

The only settings available are earc mode (auto or off) and digital output (PCM or auto) 

 

None of these settings seem to make a difference. 

Thanks

Hey Jc19,

 

I'm sorry to learn you're noticing the different quality of audio across different sources, but thank you for letting us know what you've tried so far. It seems that using the Bose Music app and WiFi streaming, the sound is performing as expected, so we need your TV sources to follow this.

 

Firstly, try the steps HERE to address the inconsistent audio across sources, and after also try the steps HERE for fixing out-of-sync audio. You will be instructed to try resets and also run the ADAPTIQ process to help calibrate your audio. Once you've tried all steps on both links provided, report back and let us know what you've found! 

Feel more. Do more. Be more.
