I'm hoping someone here can help me with an audio issue that has been giving me a bunch of problems.

Let me start with my setup:

Denon 3808CI Receiver (Latest Firmware)
Sony PS3 (Slim Version)
Energy Speakers
Standard HDMI Cable From PS3 to receiver (Mono-Price Brand)

Ok, I recently purchasd a new PS3 Slim because it is able to bistream DTS-MA and True-HD. Well to say the least, I have been having some weird sound issues.

I am be experiencing what members on the forum are calling the "DTS BOMB". Basically, when I set the PS3 to Bitstream and play a Master Audio Encoded Disc (Example Scott Pilgrim VS The World), I get random popping sounds that from what I can tell is the dreaded "DTS-BOMB". From my tests using differnet discs such as:

Scott Pilgrim
The Family Guy "Its a Trap"

I keep getting random popping sounds throughout the movie. I have even rewinded certain parts of the movie that made the popping sound and sometimes the sound will repeat, sometimes it wont. It is very Random.

Another issue I'm having is also playing discs with True-HD. If I play a movie in True-HD, I am getting a somewhat electronic noise through my speakers as if the receiver cant decode it.

I should also mention that when I set the PS3 back to "Linear PCM", the audio problems go away completely.

Are these issues related?

Is it my receiver that is the problem?

Is it the new PS3?

I really hope someone can help me out because I dont know what to think. I'm leaning towards the Receiver as the issue.

Could anybody give me some help and possible insight to what I could try next?

Thanks In advance.

Your thread was merged with the appropriate master thread for this player. ALL questions go into the PS3 sticky or the PS3 Slim master/owners thread.
