I’m currently using the Soundbar 700, surround rear speakers and the bass module 700 with my Sony AG8 TV.
It’s been stable for the last 8 months other than on one occasion where I did a factory reset on everything. Yesterday I turned it on and no audio was coming out.
It is connected via HDMI ARC.
I tested another source on the TV other than sky and nothing came out. I played music via the app on my mobile and it worked perfectly. I have unplugged everything and left it off for 10 minutes with still no luck.
My soundbar firmware is running v7.0.11-7872.
It would be great if there are some other suggestions. I want to avoid connecting via the optical cable but I saw one old firmware update stopped the soundbar working and solution was to do this.
This is a very exciting product. My toddler recently disabled the soundbar's microphone, and the same day ARC audio started working reliably. Airplay, however, stopped working. I love it!
