DTV H25/100 connected via HDMI to Denon 2312 connected to Panasonic Plasma via HDMI

Audio dropouts most noticeable on local HD channels. half second or so every few minutes. Turning off the DTV box and back on solves it for a bit.

Does not happen when DTV connected directly to TV. Does not happen when I connect from DTV to Denon via Coax. But unfortunately still happens when Denon is off and DTV plays through TV via HDMI pass through.

Has anyone found a setting to help resolve this?

Same problem with the drops here.
Optical to Panasonic aVR.
Directv says "industry wide problem" which means obviously they are aware but have no solution.
Changed every cable in my setup and had directv send me new dvr. Same problem.
Some nights every 1/1/2 hrs some nights every 15 minutes. Doesnt seem to be any pattern whatsoever.

Well .....at least the pictures decent!!!!

There is a long thread started 8/2010 on the dbstalk D* forum about audio dropouts:
http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=182017. There, it is claimed, "So, it's fairly well known that there are problems with the SAT feed that gives us audio dropouts on all MPEG-4 receivers with Dolby 5.1. These dropouts have nothing to do with the hardware on our end, regardless of what DirecTV customer service may try to tell you."

Personally, I'm not experiencing a problem.

HDMI Switch sound cuts out

I have a very similar issue and I am not sure if it is how I hooked everything up.

I wanted to simplify everything and recently replaced my AV receiver with a Vizio soundbar. I bought a HDMI 4 port switch to replace what my Receiver was doing. Now my sound drops here and there just a second. Sometime it happens in seconds and other times it takes a few min.

I have a Vizio TV and a Vizio Soundbar (sb4051) that is connected to the HDMI port 1 (Arc). I just bought the ETEKCITY HDMI switch (Model HDS-9419). I have this connected to HDMI 2 on the tv. Is this correct or should I run the switch to the HDMI in on the soundbar and the HDMI Arc port on the soundbar to the HDMI 1 port (arc) on the TV.

I am at the point to return the HDMI switch and buy a different brand but something tells me it is not the switch but the setup.

I think I answered my own question and fixed my issue.

I had my wiring messed up. I needed to go from the HDMI switch out to the HDMI IN on the Vizio soundbar. Then I needed to go from the HDMI ARC out of the Vizio Soundbar to the HDMI Port 1 ARC on the Vizio TV. The only odd thing is that I had a HDMI cable plugged into HDMI 2 on the Vizio TV but it wasn't plugged into anything on the other end. Having the HDMI 2 connected I only got a very small picture and no sound. As soon as I removed HDMI 2 cable I got a full screen picture and sound.

So far so good, my sound has not cut/drop out yet.

Any idea on why having a HDMI cable in Port 2 on the Vizio tv and not connected to a device would cause the no sound and small picture problem?

Thanks

I see dropouts very rarely - perhaps 3 times per week. I have the HR44 receiver/recorder as well as the remote unit in my bedroom. I'm pretty sure it originates in the broadcast, I guess it doesn't annoy me as much as it annoys others. I did once have an HDCP issue in the bedroom. It would cause the TV to go blank and give me an error message suggesting I connect some way other than HDMI. This cleared up simply by replacing the HDMI cable. I've been a Directv customer for more than 20 years. Great service.
