I came home and connected by 8300HD box today. Picture looks great and everything seemed to work just fine, until I lost digital audio. I had the audio connected with a digital coax cable, so I hooked up and optical cable and it didn't make any difference. If I change to an analog channel I have audio or if I change the audio setting on the box from Dolby Digital to Other I get audio (but no DD5.1). If I shut the box off and turn it on, I get sound again, but I lose it once I start changing channels. I did not stop on a channel and see if the sound would drop out after time.
Is this a common problem or do I need to swap out this box?
I wanted to use the 8300 in the home theater room, but I may have to put it downstairs and swap a 3100 to 3250 for the HT. Are there any digital audio issues with the 3250?
