Is this a common problem with these units or is mine defective? I had an A2 that spit out error code 408bc504 on three separate occasions and stuttered once or twice usually requiring a reboot so this error is not that bad but annoying nontheless. Could it be some sort of handshake problem ?
I had a similar problem that I couldn't reproduce, it was random. I changed my HDMI cable with another, and haven't had it happen again. If it is a handshake problem, it's only with video, and the audio signal is still going through. I'm not sure what it is, but I think maybe you should start the troubleshooting with trying another cable.
I have read that a digital signal either gets there, or it doesn't get there. So, only the audio part making it seems against that statement. Changing the cable seemed to help me so far (knock on wood), go figure.
