I just hooked up the HT-CT150 and am experiencing issues with the picture of movies only. Connection is HDMI through tv & digital cable receiver. Regular cable shows play completely fine, but if I play a live movie or one I recorded on TiVo, the picture/sound if very jerky or blacks out for 3-30 seconds. Any suggestions? As I said, it is movies only through the cable box; all regular cable tv shows are completely fine.
Sound like you are having an issue with the HDMI signal transmission. Try the following:
1. Turn off the HDMI (CEC control on all of the equipment being used. On the Sound BAr it is called BRAVIA Sync. (Pg 19 of the manual)
2. Make sure that the cable receiver / TiVo DVR are set to a resolution supported by the Sound Bar. See page 35 of the Sound Bar manual for the supported resolutions.
3. If the above two options fail change the way the system is hooked up. Try connecting the cable receiver and DVR directly to the TV and then use the supplied digital optical cable to send just the sound to the Sound bar.
