Hi all, i'm having an issue and I don't know if its due to "handshaking", my setup, or a defective AV-R720 unit.
I was using this HTIB system strictly with my HTPC and Samsung LCD TV. The HTPC is hooked up via HDMI to the Receiver and I play videos, dvds, etc. However, sometimes when I pause and resume or switch from a youtube video to a dvd I get this loud static hiss that has a stutter to it.
I thought this was just due to the HTPC but now that I have a Dish Network PVR attached the system via HDMI I've started to notice the same issue when I pause a tv show and resume it. I get this random stuttering static noise for about 4-5 seconds and then it goes away. Sometimes I get my normal audio back and sometimes it just goes mute and then gives me the static for 5 more seconds and goes mute, like a cycle. Today is gave me the static when i resumed from a tv show and then said "Not Supported" on the receiver. I had to turn it off and turn it back on so it would give me audio.
This doesn't occur everytime I switch from Youtube to a DVD or everytime I pause a show on the DVR and resume. It happens at random but quite frequently.
If this helps...right now i'm on my HTPC and playing a movie in the background, the receiver says "Dolby Digital" on the left and "Digital" on the right, the input says DVD. If I pause the movie, it just says "DVD" and the other wording goes away. If I exit the CyberDVD program then it reads "L.PCM DIGITAL LIVE SURR." on the receiver. Can I keep it from "looking" for new signal and just keep on "D. Digital" or "L.PCM Digital" permanently ?
Is it due to using HDMI ? Is it a "handshaking" problem ?
Thanks for any help.
