My A1 has been buzzing through the 5.1 analog outputs.
I was sending them into a Sony analog preamp (9000ES) which has 2 5.1 analog inputs and acts as a switchbox, as well as the 5.1 audio outputs from my Oppo 970 for just cd/dvd-a/scad--no video. The Oppo is dead silent.
I switched the A1 to the DTS digital audio but the sound level was so low that I had to run my receiver at +5 (its maximum) and still not loud enough. I usually listen to all mivies at -15.
So I bypassed the Sony preamp and ran direct into my HK 645 receiver and still the loud buzz.
I tried cheater plugs and reduced the buzz a bit but not by much.
I then moved the A1 into anotheer room with a smaller system and separate ac line, and it still buzzed in there.
So I'm taking it back but not sure whether to try another one.
The other problem, which I thought was fixed but not so, is that it takes forever for the cursor to move to the right. When I enter a menu to change audio setting et al, I cannot get the cursor to move right. It takes up to 20 clicks and even then it may not move at all.
I reset the remote according to Toshiba tech (remove batteries and hold down EVERY button for 3 seconds) but no change.
So are either of these issues for anyone else? The buzzing or the remote's refusal to move to the right.
I don't have receiver's with hdmi yet so trying to work with the 5.1 analog input but aside from the buzzing, the remoteis driving me crazy. I know get a Harmony but I'd rather not for now.
