Installation of you view box no video when using HDMI and sound box

Connect the HDMI cable from youview box direct to TV and all works OK.

Connect HDMI cable to TV via sound box and there is no video or sound

 

Sound box is Philips HTL5140B/12

 

don't know if this is a youview box issue or sound box.

Re: Installation of you view box no video when using HDMI and sound box

Its not going be the BT Youview box. The soundbar spec says its got one HDMI input, and one HDMI ARC output as explained on this page.

I would suspect that you have things incorrectly wired.

 

I would interpret the correct way as  YouView box to TV, then from the TV HDMI, to the soundbar.

This is my best guess, as its not my area of expertise.

 

I have a LG audio system, and TV. The YouView box goes to the TV, and the TV connects to the LG audio system. The TV outputs the audio on the ARC channel, to the LG sound system, and it works just fine.

 

If your TV has only one HDMI connection, then you would have to use a HDMI splitter from the YouView box, and feed the TV and soundbar from it.
