This has happened to me in the past with different DVD players and A/V receivers and at the time I just bought another DVD player.
But now with a Blu Ray player (OPPO BDP-80) and a different A/V receiver (Sony STR-DH800) it has started again.
Everything works fine for several months than the audio of either a Blu Ray disc or via USB stick starts to randomly fade out and become extremely quite. The OPPO and Sony are hooked up via HDMI, I've also tried optical digital with the same result. The time before (different components it was composite and optical digital).
To me it seemed like a dirty laser or disc but now with USB, that rules those out. And the fact it's happened over time with different components, I can't believe I keep getting bad equipment.
OPPO tech support said turn off DSP, well as far as the Blu Ray player is concerned I'm pretty sure it's turned off. The A/V receiver seems to be pretty much automatic. They also suggested hooking it up with the analog connections, I haven't tried that yet.
It seems to me some sort of compatibility issue, but then again why does it work fine for awhile then all of a sudden start fading out.
I'm contemplating either buying a Sony brand Blu Ray player or just scrapping the whole component set up and go with a all-in-one set up.
Any ideas, help?
