I receive freeview via an aerial with good signal level through an HD aerial; there are no other connections into the tv and I have checked the aerial plugs. Over the last week my HD Samsung TV sometimes loses sound but not picture. There is no problem if I switch to the same non HD channel. For instance, watching channel 3 HD all evening today from 7.30pm until 10:00 pm and no problem. Then when the news came on at 10:00 within a few seconds of the news the sound goes out; just happened again after 20 minutes; switching channel to say number 2 HD and then back to channel 3 HD brings the sound back. It does seem to happen on live programs. This has never occurred before with this TV that is around 2 years old. I feel it may be something with the transmitter?? Interestingly as a separate item I noticed our DAB car radio lose signal on Radio 2 today also, cutting in and out showing lack of signal.
My next check will be to switch to my satellite HD (currently disconnected completely) and see if it happens on this system to try to identify if its perhaps the HD tuner within the TV.
