I now await to see if the sound problem recurs. It was happening last night but am just getting back into solving the problem today. In addition, since firmware 2150 updated, my 3d has been messed up. Samsung still insists to wait for the next firmware update that may fix the 3d. By the way, I was able to get $1200 in Best Buy certificates by taking out their Credit card for this purchase. Will simply pay off card and never incur any interest expense.
Sorry I didn't respond to your earlier post regarding audio stopping every or so when watching DTV on your Samsung. Issue is possibly HDMI related. Following is best I've read regarding HDMI problems: Official OPPO BDP-103D (Darbee Edition) Owner's Thread
Every week or so I experience the same issue on my F9000 with 2014 UHD one connect. I can solve the issue by hitting "stop" on the remote and then starting play again. Problem could be in my HR44 or Integra 9.8 (AV processor). Since it happens so infrequently, I haven't spent much of an effort to trouble shoot the problem.
If I were you, I would first try using a different HDMI input on the Marantz. If problem goes away, use the new input vice the old HDMI 2. Would also try a new cable, just in case. You can try various issues discussed in the above post on HDMI issues.
As a last resort, if nothing else works, I personally would run optical digital from the DTV receiver to the Marantz and use that for sound. It might be the HDMI output (connector, card, etc.) that is causing the problem. If that works and you have the DTV warranty program, try talking them into replacing/upgrading your DTV receiver.
