Setup: Sony Bravia 46" TV, new Denon AVR 1913 A/V receiver, Comcast cable box and new Panasonic BMP-DDT220 blu ray player. All connections using new HDMI cables from Crutchfield.

Cable works fine, Netflix streaming via Panasonic works fine.

Bought 2 Blu Ray discs - The Hobbit played fine with no issues but while playing Les Miserables the picture cuts out intermittently for a second or so and then re-establishes itself. This happened back to back on the same evening.

Since one disc played clean but the other did not, I am not suspecting the cable. I plan to try a standard DVD...

Any suggestions before I exchange the Blu Ray disc? Could there be other issues in my setup or configuration?

Thanks!

Just to test, you might try disabling "deep color" in the Blu-ray player.

Thanks! I will try that....another suggestion I received was to turn off video up-conversion in the Denon AVR setup...

Disabling upconversion in the receiver certainly shouldn't hurt. The TV has to be able to upscale incoming video to match its actual display resolution, after all, so passing through the native resolution of the video source material should work fine. However, sometimes HDMI forces a hand-shake (which can result in a brief signal drop-out) when resolutions change, so it sometimes can be helpful to set a fixed resolution in the player itself, avoiding HDMI signal changes.

The AVR isn't doing any upconversion with Les Mis at 1080p.

Audiosceptics accept audio trials using 25 people. A recent Oxford study with over 353,000 patient records from 639 separate clinical trials shows for every 1,000 people taking diclofenac or ibuprofen there would be 3 additional heart attacks, 4 more cases of heart failure and 1 death every year.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I retried the play yesterday evening with NO changes and it played cleanly. Only suspicion now is that I may have had the Screen setting on my Sony Bravia (which is older than the player and AVR by 3 years) to Zoom or other rather than Full....wonder if this caused the TV to do additional conversion at its end on the Les Mis .... will be trying more discs in the coming days....

Of course, there's always the possibility of a cable being loose. HDMI connectors aren't the most reliable, especially if the cable is stiff.
