PS3 - Netflix, audio breaks off

I have my PS3 connected to the TV. The audio cuts out every time and only when I'm using Netflix. It comes back only when I increase or decrease the volume on the remote. (thats the only way I've tried and it worked.) Help??

SOURCE: Audio cuts out

HDMI is not a universal standard. Some units will not talk back and forth correctly and can cause lock ups, loss of audio or loss of picture. Try switching to component inputs and see if it works better. Check your owners manual but I believe the component inputs will also accept 1080P as long as the Panasonic Blu Ray can output 1080P. Don't believe what the Salesman said if he told you that you have to use HDMI or you won't get HD.

Did you try another time warner remote if yes then this is normal because if on/off works that means the volume function is not coded for the time warner remote because the set is to new.

I am able to stream netflix, however, I was told I should be able to access everything else from my PC on the TV, as well. Therefore use my TV as a laptop. How do I do that??

If your Television has netflix installed on it, you will need to connect the television to the internet and follow the on screen instructions to enter your information.

If it doesn't, you will need a device that has netflix on it that can connect to the computer (an xbox, PS3, Wii, or compatible player) that can connect to the internet. Again, connect the device, choose netflix, and follow the onscreen instructions.

I can provide more details about these on screen instructions if I know what device you are using.

As a third option, you can connect your laptop to the TV with any video or audio cord. HDMI is a favorite if your computer has an HDMI output port and your TV has an HDMI input.

We are using our PS3 for Netflix. All software & firmware up-to-date. Shortly after the PS3 outage, several TV shows did the following when selected (happened with any episode selected): The loading...

Oddities that occur during playback within Netflix on the PS3 can often be corrected by deleting the Netflix software from the system and then reinstalling it. This clears some cached files that can interfere with playback at times. You may have to "re-activate" your PS3 on the Netflix site, but this is a relatively quick and painless process.

If this does not help, double check your media playback settings in the PS3's Settings Menu, and insure they match the capability of your chosen cables and receiver. Alternatively, you may wish to change the cable or connection interface you're using (RCA to HDMI or vice versa) to insure this isn't an oddity with your receiver, television, or cables.

If none of this corrects the issue, and everything else functions as expected on your PS3, then it is likely a Netflix issue. These problems crop up form time to time and are usually resolved within a day or two.

No audio when using playstation 3 to streamline from netflix. TV audio works. Seems to be PS3


If you are having trouble with audio just from Netflix and all the audio play back works then this sounds like you have a corrupted audio codex on the PS3.

The first thing I would do is uninstall Netflix from your PS3 and reinstall it. If this does not fix the problem I would reinstall the firmware for the PS3. If you still have trouble you may need to format the hard drive. The link below will help you do that if needed.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Using bluetooth audio with ps3 netflix

The Bluetooth audio signal for PS3 only carries voice chat. The game sounds and music are played through your TV or stereo receiver only.
