I realise this is late to the party, but I would have wanted to know whether the problem was isolated to StDef or HiDef services (figuring you might have only been trying HiDef, for example).I've just bought a HDR-Fox T2 box and I get the dreaded no sound problem with my Samsung MU6120 TV. I never get sound no matter what I do. I don't suppose anyone knows a fix for it?
I just wanted to say thank you for this post. An innocuous comment but I've had exactly this problem with my own new Panasonic TV. Oddly, I have two FOXes and initially the second worked; it was only after power cycling to try to get the first to produce audio that the second then went quiet.Thanks for the reply Ezra. I've already tried the phono audio out and it works fine. I've also tried the box on another Samsung TV and it works fine through HDMI.
I've been reading online and people have fixed it on Panasonic TVs by changing the HDMI to mode 1 - I don't seem to have that option on my Samsung MU6120 TV.
