The HDMI clock timing was adjusted first by a hardware change, then when that worked, they figured out how to do the same thing with firmware.
The HDMI output was within specs, but so close to the edge that unpredictable variations in player, cables, and receiving hardware could cause a fault.
This is why I'm glad I don't debug HDMI for a living. Player, cables and display can all be within spec and you can still have trouble.
The fix is to increase the safety margin on the clock timing of the HDMI output.
The firmware is still being tested, but looks good so far. Be patient, wait for the official release. Don't know exactly how long; obviously intermittent errors like this need to be exercised throughly before we can be confident they have been eliminated.
