If there is a remedy, how do I get and load the firmware? I have never performed any kind of update on the unit, and I do not know how.
I've known about this issue for years, but I almost always used an analog input for my Oppo disc player, so it never really mattered. The exception would be when I played DVD/Blu-ray, which I do input via HDMI, but then the first few seconds of audio are irrelevant -- it's usually the sound for the initial menus screen.
However ... for the past year, I have painstakingly re-imported my digital music library in lossless format (ALAC), and now, with the help of an Apple TV device, I stream audio from a MacBook Pro to my audio system using AirPlay. It's very cool; the Mac is now my primary audio source. But this also means the clipped intros on audio via HDMI have morphed from no big deal to a very big deal.
That's the whole story. Can anyone help me? Thanks again.
Hi, it seems like we have similar systems.
I have the 1572 and have the same problem playing music on my Oppo.
I have my Apple TV going HDMI into my Oppo. I have an HDMI connection and an analog connection from my Oppo to the 1572.
So when I play CDs, or stream Pandora from the Oppo, I use the analog output on the Oppo and the cut-out of the first few seconds is gone. The rare occasion i watch a movie on the Apple tv or a disc, i use the HDMI connection.
To play music from JRiver on my iMac, I don't use airplay. I use the USB out from the iMAC, to the USB in on the Oppo to use the Oppo DAC. Then I use the analog connection from the Oppo to the 1572 and there is no cut-out.
