Bug Report: Lost HD Audio when Changing/pausing
Posted 07 February 2004 - 01:03 AM
On the surface this might seem a B&K problem however it does not Happen with the SD channels. Nore did it happen with a Dish 721 reciever over 7 months.
Also have tried 2 dvd and a cd player all hooked optically with no similar bugs.

As noted by djtowle, one's gut instinct might be to say that this is a problem with the stereo receiver (a JVC 1024-VBK), but the stereo receiver never did this with a 508 (despite being hooked up the exact same way), and never does this with any other input sources, so something the 921 is doing with the optical output is most likely the culprit.

I am a happy and dedicated 6-yr DishNetwork user, but frankly I'm a little disappointed with all the PVR software isssues, and will definately wait a few months to pick up the new 921 I have been coveting.

My Problems with the 921 audio see unrelated to the 721/displayer probllems I've seen. to review here is what I originally observed: Switching between HD channels the audio cut off. switching modes on my Reciever ie thx - DD would restore the audio. Since first reporting i have made some additional observations. Channels broadcast in Dolby Digital seem to have the problem. Pausing a DD channel and restarting results in the loss of audio. Using the skip back button sometimes results in the loss of audio. I have a B&K 307 reciever. If no signal is present on the optical feed it defaults to analog. I wonder if the 901 is possibly "blinking" or turning off for a moment the optical feed causing some recievers to think there is no optical feed and reverting to analog? Does anyone know anything about the digital audio feed? Is there some kind of "carrier" that should be sent at all times? Another possibility is the 921 "blinking" when switching from DD to PCM? I don't know much about optical audio feeds. But this is a real problem (Ie didn't happen with dishplayer or 721 units or several different DVD players) and an annoying one. Can I be confident that Dish knows of this bug through the postings on this list? I'm going to email B&K next.
