Answer: 
Hi lyndy,
if you have the TV connected to your amp receiver via the 3.5mm headphone jack you should receive the sound that accompanies the YouTube video.

Had the tv about a month and suddenly having the internet connected causes the tv to reset every 46 seconds precisely. The busy icon appears in the top left corner like it is accessing the internet so the other tv functions are locked and then it turns itself off and on. Have tried to reset to factory settings in case it has unsuccessfully downloaded an app or update but no joy. Anyone else seen or cured this?

Answer: 
You can put it on a wall, it has the fixing holes on the rear of the TV. You will have to purchase the wall mounting kit seperately as it doesnt come with any wall mounting brackets.

It works fine with a Virgin media box too!
