I just started having this exact problem last night. Mine is connected to an Onkyo 606 via hdmi and a vintage Sansui 5500 via RCA L/R. I was playing the CD's through the Sansui when I noticed it. At first I thought there was something wrong with my speakers until I switched to a different source. I unplugged the LG and tried the CD again and it was fine. I turned everything off and came back later and the problem re-occurred. THis time I just ejected the disc, re-inserted and it went away.
Haven't tried the Onkyo when this was happening to see if it's affecting that receiver but that's my next step. Any thoughts why this occurring? This receiver has been pretty much flawless with everything I've played through up to this point. Thank you.

Our BH-200 was pretty much relegated to playing movies ever since we've had it. Well, today I decided to listen to some music CDs... usually I just play them from my HTPC but today I wanted to listen to a CD that I hadn't yet bothered to rip to the HD, so I thought I'd pop it into the BH-200 and see how it handles music. During the first song I thought I could hear a damaged EMIT tweeter... when I walked up and place my ear near to the suspected tweeter it was plain that there was bad distortion coming from it. I was bummed. So then I decided to also check the other main speaker, sure enough it produced the same distorted high freqs... I check the center channel same thing, etc. So it was either my Onkyo or the BH-200. I then ripped the CD to the HTPC and upon replaying from the HTPC every note was crystal clear. To make a longer story not as long... I eventually discovered that if I switch the BH-200 HDMI Audio in the menu to PCM and then back to Pass-thru the problem fixed itself, every note is crystal. However if I ejct and then put in either the same or another disc the distortion happens again until I go back into the menu and manually switch to PCM and then back to Pass-thru. Even though I never really use this player for listening to CDs it still bugs me. Has anyone else noticed something similar happening with their BH-200? Is it yet another bug in the new firmware update or is it something that has always been there (a known issue)? This sucks!
