I have the SC-09, Toshiba XA2 & Pio BDP players, all connected with HDMI only, and have played a few (don't remember titles, tho) HD-DVD's with DD+ with no problems, no dropouts, no distortion. They played perfectly.
In fact, when I first got the SC-09 last May, I updated the XA2 to the last FW they had before the player had problems with Paramount AVC discs (2.7) and HD-DVD's with DD+ & TrueHD were the very first titles I played to verify I was getting proper bitstreamed audio.
I have had no problems with bitstreamed audio from BD's either, played on a Panasonic BD10 player, a Pioneer 05, and now the 09. PCM, TrueHD, DTS-MA, DD+ all play flawlessly. Since I have an extensive collection of both HD-DVD's & BD's, my experience should be a good cross section of titles with the SC-09.
So I have no explanation for the problems being reported here with dropout
. If I do encounter a title where it does drop out, I'll make sure I post about it. This discussion has me a bit intrigued, so I may pop in a few more and watch several minutes each to see if anything happens.
