unplug everything then plug it back in remove hard drive and re-attach as well. (with power off)

Then change hdmi.. then use an alternative method eg the hd advanced cable (component) or the standard def cable yellow composite/ red/white audio

Does the sound cut out on the TV if you are watching a programme or dvd?

I reckon it's the gold plate, you probably bought 9ct, you need 24ct plating.

Actually theirs no real advantage between a standard hdmi cable and gold plated hdmi cable since it carries a digital signal.

The reality is you can't tell any difference, An hdmi cable is an hdmi cable only fools spend extra on gold plated hdmi cables.

They still claim their better yada yada but their not, Or if they are they don't warrant the extra premium.

£9.99 is relatively expensive for an hdmi cable, Max £5 in fact £1 shops seem to sell them now and have done for a while.

Try a different hdmi socket if the TV has one you but also get another hdmi cable to use try on existing hdmi sockets

So if there was no difference why would companys make them? and sell them for more?

Because folk still believe they make a difference and assume because they cost more they are going to be better.

In this case little if no point paying the premium unless the hdmi cable happens to be about 300 meters long.

I doubt this, how would they be allowed to make this product and charge more if it was the same as a non gold plated?

Anyways, its still the same after takin all the cables out etc..
#15
Have you tried it in a different hdmi port or changed the cable though? (you are never going to find out which is faulty without trying 3 things)

Or if you are using an hdmi switch take it off.

Change the 360 sound settings again put to stereo (again)
#16
I had this before, i simply swapped cables (From xbox and freeview) and put them in different ports and worked
#17
btw the gold plating is only supposed to improve contact betweeen ports/sockets. As long as the sending equipment sends 0101 and receiving acknowledges 0101 then the £ of cable is irrelevant eg a £1 can receive 0101 exactly the same as a £100 one.(*based on bandwidth and signaling requirements being the same)
#18
I had the same problem, changed the Xbox, changed the cable, realised it was the tv/hdmi port. Switched back to component and carried on playing.

I only have 1 hdmi port on my tv so im gonna use the normal tv cable you get and see if that works!
