set up the new version of onn box. Found that every so often the sound drops for a split second. Was doing it about every 7-8 minutes on live feed from Youtube TV and also on playback of recorded show.
Thought it might be the youtube tv feed, but hooked up my older onn box to other tv and sound was fine. So switched the 2 boxes and now the new box doing the same thing on the other feed from youtube tv. so must be the box itself. will return and try a different one.
BTW the gear button on remote will not work either. I have to go to the app menu and choose the settings app to get to settings
