Hi, hope somebody can help with this annoying issue that I can fix.
I open Netflix through Fetch and play a movies/ tv show from the menu, everything works fine.
I open Netflix through Fetch and select “Search” and select a movie/ tv show from the search results and press play.
The movie starts playing the video is fine but the audio is distorted and sounds fast, almost chipmunk like.
I can do exactly the same on my other platforms and have no issues.
I have no surround sound connected, this is all running through HDMI to the TV.
Hey @Seanoh, did you manage to resolve this using @saxydude's suggestion? This article from Netflix mentions the audio settings may be the culprit, as saxydude mentions. If you're still having trouble, please reach out.
I also have this issue however my audio is set to stereo. It can be working fine then I pause a TV show and when I press play again the sound is distorted like chipmunks. Any suggestions?
Are you able to confirm if you're using a HiFi system that runs through a digital audio receiver? We've had similar enquiries in the past and the issue stems from a HDCP compatibility issue. HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) built into certain devices such as HDMI cables. It's a measure put in place to prevent piracy.
Let us know, we're happy to help out.
Hmm, do you have a spare HDMI cable that you could test? I'd also suggest a soft reset of your Fetch set top box:
If that doesn't work then the next step is full a factory reset:
Keep in mind that by doing a hard reset and following these instructions this will remove any recordings you currently have.
Let us know how you go.
I had a similar problem where we could not get sufficient volume when watching Netflix - setup is a Fetch box through Hi Sense TV and Hi Sense 5.1 Channel Sound Bar.
Solution was to change audio setting on Fetch to 5.1 and then to ensure that the Fetch remote is able to control the volume (as recommended in the Fetch setup). Using the Fetch remote use the volume keys to increase the volume to max.
After that the volume is controlled normally by the Sound Bar remote and the Netflix volume is much better
