Is anyone who owns the Panasonic player using it with a Yamaha RX-V3800.
I am wondering if you are getting any strange noises when you are scanning or chapter skipping. This was a post that I made in receivers thread and the Samsung 1400 thread:
I have had a problem using this 1400 with my new Yamaha RX-V3800 but I do not know which unit is causing the problem.
I updated my 1400 via the ethernet port, last Thrusday, (update was on the US site but not the Canuck site) as I wanted to get the Dolby Tru HD and DTS Master capability. This was very easy.......took about under a half an hour...just follow the instructions in the Samsung manual.
Then I tried my NIN True HD track on their Blu-ray and it worked perfectly (Tru HD lights up on the Yamaha, must make sure Sammy is set to bitstream though).
Then to check for DTS Master I put in X-Men 3 and it also worked fine and sounded great.
There is however an issue.........when you scan fwd or rev or chapter fwd/rev (only with DD True, DTS Master) there is a slight burst of digital noise for about a half second (spitting sound, un locked onto digital signal). This is very disturbing as I have never had this with a Yamaha product. Every since Yamaha put out their first digital sound capable receivers (RX-V2090 with outboard DD decoder) they have never had digital noise bursts or sounds at all. Yamaha units (unlike some of their competitors) have always muted themselves correctly before they lock on to the digital signal therefore never subjecting their customer or their customers speakers to this noise.
Having said this, I don't know what is causing it......tried different HDMI cables....and have determined that it is not a cable issue. It may be an issue with the Samsung.......I do not have any other units that can feed these new signals to the Yamaha. I am hoping to get the new Panasonic..but this will not be past my 30 return period on my Yamaha.
I don't intend to accept this as a new norm......if I can't find out what is causing this the Yamaha will go back in the next 9 days.
One other this worth mentioning is that when the Sammy 1400 is set to PCM with the X-MEN Blu-ray.........the Sammy decodes DTS-HD (not Master as it can only decode up to DTS-HD) and sends it to the Yamaha as PCM. When I tried scanning and chapter skipping with this signal.......it caused bigger problems with the Yamaha not locking on and picture disturbances etc.
Is anyone else using this set-up? I have informed A&B sound re all of this and they know nothing (all this is too new). I may take my Samsung down to A&B and hook it up to their Denon AVR-3808CI and do some scanning.....they have suggested this. I have contacted Denon Canada about the fact that my Denon 2910 HDMI signal will not work if used with my new Yamaha.....the serivce guy is in Japan but responded promptly......he will send me new firmware when he gets back to Canada...so that is up in the air too.
