Hi All, Before posting, i did some searching first about audio weirdness and dropouts. The main thread of audio dropouts seemed general, so I figured I would post my question anyways. I have a HR22-100 connected via HDMI to my Samsung LCD Series 6 and always has worked perfectly. For Christmas, I got a Samsung HT-BD1250 BluRay Home Theater. I have connected it directly via optical cable to the HR22, turned on Dolby Digital and completely shutoff the audio from the TV. Ever since then, I would say 70% of the time I am satisfied with the audio... the other 30% I dealing with Audio Drops randomly on any HD channel and when playing back HD DVR material, after FF through commercials, it takes 5 to 10 seconds for the audio to return. I also notice it taking a while for the audio to return if when watching live tv on an HD channel, an SD commercial is shown, and when switched back to HD the audio lags. So is this normal? Thanks in advance to everyone!
