Thanks for confirming, I was thinking about giving that a try. I'm wondering what happened, I never had this problem before."jimmie57" said:If you are hooking the Yamaha up with an HDMI can you also run and optical cable or a digital coax and assign either of those for your sound ?
I have mine set up this way and we are not experiencing any sound problems.
Just finished connected the optical cable and it's the same as it ever was. Using a HR-24 500 with oft ware 0x5d2, Tue 6/19, 3:05a"EdL" said:Thanks for confirming, I was thinking about giving that a try. I'm wondering what happened, I never had this problem before.
Kevin, do you have any idea how we can prevent the signal from going "out of sync". It's a pain in the butt.Kevin F said:It's not a say strength issue. It's more of a Dolby digital issue. Basically what is happening is that the DD signal is going out of sync and has to "drop sound" to resync itself. It's much more technical than I just explained but this hits the majority of it.
I called DTV Tech Support about this problem again - last night......was told that these kind of things can be caused by all different kinds of things [not related to DTV] all most likely on my end. Maybe need to go to Optical Digital connection rather than HDMI - I was told to try that. Have not done so yet.......WEIRD though, appears to ONLY be on the major network channels, so how could that tell them/me that it is caused by something on my end........WHY would'nt it be on ALL channels?orbeavhawk said:I live in Portland, Oregon area and the last two days have been experiencing the same terrible audio drop outs from a split second, 5-6 seconds, to 15-18 seconds........seem to be only one the major Network channels so far - ABC, CBS. NBC and FOX.
I have called DTV Tech S. two days ago and am now going to call again after reading here that there are others having same lousy problems.
TKS for the reply.........today I dug out an old Optical Digital cord and ran it from my DTV Receiiver into my Pioneer AVR......so now I have BOTH cables, HDMI and the O/D Cables running between to two......some brief tests on several major network channels has been positive thus far [did notice a few of those split second hickups - due to DD resynch[ nothing I can't live with].Laxguy said:It seems it could be an issue with the uplink of your locals- the locals of the major networks, that is.
Others seem to be a receiver not syncing with the audio signals, in which case an optical connection, or straight wires from the receiver to the amp's audio input might get around the HDMI problem.
