Optical Input Issue
Dear Philips Team,
I have bought a set of AW9000. They sound great. Wireless streaming works fine.
I have connected them to my TV through an optical digital cable.
When I turn on the loud speakers, they sound fine - tv sound is good.
When I turn off the tv and turn it back on. The sound dissapears. I then need to turn the AW9000 off and back on for the sound to return (I can leave the tv on, which suggests that the tv is providing the digital signal all the time).
If I am watching tv, but switch to streaming music (either from ipad, mac, or iphone) I cant go back to the sound from the tv. To get the tv sound back on I need to turn off the speakers and turn them back on. Again In this situation I have not touched the TV at any point, it has been providing the signal at all times.
This suggests that there is something going wrong at the speakers as if there is any kind of switching away from optical input it cannot switch back.
The firmware was updated as of yesterday and the TV is a samsung plasma screen.
Please let me know what to do.
For situation 1, it is normal if the AW9000 is in standby mode (green LED). afterall, it s not a soundbar :P.
For situation 2, you have to switch back to mp3 link or AUX in mode in airstudio. i suppose you do not have to turn it off and then back on.
Thanks for your answer. On Situation 1, the sound AW9000 does not enter standby mode. The LED does not go green. Any interruption to the signal from the optical input simply means that the speakers will not accept more input on the digital line. There is no way I can switch back with the AirStudio. I can play music from my phone byt it WILL NOT switch back to optical inout before I restart the speakers.
The same is the case in Situation 2. I cannot switch back. AirStudio does allow me to select the optical input, but the speakers never actually switch.
If you look carefully I think a couple of other users have reported similar problems earlier in different threads without it actually getting solved.
If it is helpful, I can possibly do a video demonstration and send it to you. Would that help?
I have the same problem with the digital coax connected from my Phillips tv (32PFL9705).
If I switch the AW9000 on from standby and use airstudio to switch to digital coax input --> no sound.
If I switch the AW9000 on from standby and use the buttons --> no sound
If I switch from spotify or other source by airstudio --> no sound
If I switch from spotify or other source with the buttons --> no sound
I have to reboot the AW9000 by removing power cord and switch to digital coax input by airstudio to get sound from my tv. If I switch to another source by airstudio I have sound from that other source. If I switch back to digital coax --> no sound untill reboot by removing power.
Hi Peter, have you upgraded the device to the latest firmware version ? Don't know if it can help.

I also have fully updated firmware. Philips: can you kindly reply?
Yes, we are now looking into this and will update you when we have more information on this subject.
Thanks for your patience whilst we are looking into your problem.

Thanks for the reply. Good to know. I look forward to hearing how it can be solved.
Would you please advise what sound settings you use for your TV e.g. PCM?

It is PCM.
I have just done an experiment today and connected the speakers to my Apple TV. The same thing happens. When I turn off the Apple TV I can't get the sound back to optical input without rebooting the speakers.
Occasionally if I switch to aux input I can then switch back to optical input, but only some times and only if the speakers have not been in standby mode.
