    Well, digital audio is all new to me, so please shed some light. I experience momentary drop-outs in digital audio during the film presentation, anywhere from 1-10 times in a flick. I'm running a Toshiba 3107 -> Coax monster cable -> Yamaha 595 DD/DTS receiver. The receiver makes no indication of an error and continues audio a fraction of a second later. Repeating the same sequence does not consistently reproduce the drop-out.

    Any insight?

    This happens on all discs you've viewed?

    Are you running the audio directly into the television as well? If so, does the audio drop out while listening to the soundtrack through the television speakers? If you're not running the audio to the television, you might temporarily do so to remove the receiver from the equation.

    I've experienced drop outs in audio during the playback of DVDs at random points that can not be replicated on most cases by running the disc back. Those this happens rarely (maybe only once in the viewing of 20 discs).

    What about playing CDs?

    Someone on #DVD was aware of a problem with my specific DVD player (Toshiba SD-3107) vs. all Yamaha digital receivers.. some sort of data sync problem or something, I don't know the details of it.

    No there are no problems with analog audio. 9 out of 10 discs will have a momentary problem with digital from 1-10 times during the show. 1 out of 10 is either no problem, or it just happened not to occur on that viewing.

    All times are PST (US)
