I am having a problem with my Chromecast....Or at least that's what I've narrowed it down to.
About two weeks ago I purchased the Chromecast and got it set up, plugging it into an HDMI port on my Yamaha RX-v773. Watched a couple of things on it, everything's working great.
A couple days later, I was watching something on cable tv, and the sound would intermittently cut out, about once every 10 or 15 seconds. No regular pattern to it, and each cut out was a split second, but was very annoying. I figured it was something wrong with the cable box so I did a reset on it, but the next day it was happening again. I was about to call the cable company, but today I noticed the very same behavior while watching Netflix through the PS3. So then I was thinking it's my receiver that's the problem.
Doing a little experimentation, I unplugged the Chromecast from the HDMI port on the receiver, and the problem went away. Since unplugging it, I haven't had a single sound cut out on any other input. It seems that the Chromecast on one HDMI port is somehow causing random sound cutouts on *other* HDMI ports on the receiver.
Has anyone come across this before? And if so, is there anything I can do about it?
