I'm assuming you have your -83 connected via HDMI to your AVR and your AVR connected via HDMI to your TV.. if so...
And the audio does not come back on in a few seconds, you may have to hit stop and start over. Worst case, you may have to open the tray and close it again.
What happened was, when you turned off your TV, you caused the HDMI handshake to drop. Every time an HDMI device comes online or goes offline, the entire HDMI chain makes another handshake. Usually, it reacquires itself momentarily, but as with all things HDMI, maybe so - maybe not.
This may never happen again, or it might happen every time.
When I do what you did, my audio drops - then it comes back within 2-3 seconds, after the handshake take place.
But again... YMMV
