Hi there,

Your TV have a setting that disables sound to the TV speakers when using HDMI.

Try temporarily disconnecting the HDMI cable that goes to the AV receiver and let me know if you hear audio from the TV ok?

Expert:  Pete replied 5 months ago.

This can happen if Netflix is outputting a format the AV receiver doesn't understand, so you end up hearing no sound at all.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Pete I think this is a Panasonic setting as I get volume on the tv but get no volume through my receiver for any of the Netflix Amazon prime or even you tube apps on the blu ray player. However blu Rays play perfectly fine.
Expert:  Pete replied 5 months ago.

There is no setting on the Panasonic that will change the audio format - if the TV is able to process the audio signal but the AV receiver is not, this proves that it is a formatting problem.
