Solution 2: Check your cables

Audio signal may not be reaching your Xbox One correctly if the cable is damaged or not properly connected to your devices.

1. Double-check your HDMI and/or optical audio cables to be sure that they are securely connected and free of breaks, kinks, or damage.

2. Try replacing the cables. Some cables are better than others, and a low-quality cable can impact your video.

Solution 3: Check how your devices are connected

A good rule of thumb with home theaters is to keep things as simple as you can. In this case, that means using HDMI to plug your set-top box directly to your Xbox One, and your Xbox One directly to your TV.

You also want to remove any superfluous devices. HDMI or optical switches, audio-video receivers, converter boxes, and other devices can cause the signal to degrade with each additional pass-through. You can also try removing devices one at a time to see if one in particular is causing the performance problem.

Solution 4: Check your set-top box

Your set-top box may need to be reset to clear out incorrect configuration data. Disconnect any cables—including power—from the device for 30 seconds or more, and then plug them back in. If you use an over-the-air (OTA) set-top box, check to ensure your HD antenna is connected and working properly. The Xbox One can only display what the set-top box sends it, so poor audio reception from the antenna will come through on your console.
