Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
What type of speaker/sound system are you using?
When you say it happens mostly on films, do you mean things you've recorded OTA, or bluray discs?
I have connected two entirely different video monitor/sound systems via HDMI lead with the same effect.
What specific things does this happen with?What sound systems are you using? Tv speakers or a surround system?
This effect occurs on broadcast transmissions and is present on recordings I make on the set top box

I have connected an LG monitor with internal speakers and also a
If that setting doesn't help, you can try a quick reboot by unplugging power at the mains for 60+ seconds as well
and if still no change then attempting to update the firmware on the panasonic would be the next step
Samsung monitor with external speakers.
I have rebooted and have the latest firmware installed.
Try the analog outputs (red/white) and see if sound is any better that way. If it is, it indicates a hdmi issue with the box.
I have not tried that. I will try it and get back to you. Thanks Rick
