I got a Blu-Ray player for Christmas (Sony BDP-S580) and hooked it up to my HT setup. To do this I decided to use the HDMI pass-thru on my Denon AVR-391 receiver.
I am confident that it is connected correctly from blu-ray IN to receiver and receiver OUT to tv. Audio works fine and the picture displays correctly. The problem I am getting is somewhat strange to describe as I have never seen it.
I am getting a few white pixels (I think) that will randomly appear in different places and then in random intervals less than 10 seconds apart a white very thin line across the screen will flash very quickly in different places on the screen.
I have no idea what this may be.
I tried a different, but same, HDMI cable and that did not work.
To resolve the issue temporarily I used HDMI from the blu-ray to the tv and then a coaxial audio cable to the receiver. This works fine, as it did with my previous up-converting dvd player that the blu-ray replaced.
Obvious question, what might it be and how can I fix it?
And second question, will the coaxial audio connection allow for DD-HD and DTS-HD? If so I will just keep it this way.
