Hello: I'm having an issue with a BluRay disc that I'm hoping you guys might be able to help me troubleshoot. The disc is this year's Mormon Tabernacle Choir's "Once Upon A Christmas" and when I first put it in my BDP83SE, upon initial playback, the audio began to cut out plus it was was out of sync with the picture. I might interject here that I have the player connected via HDMI to my Pioneer plasma and then to my older Pioneer Elite receiver, a VSX56TXi, using the player's coax digital output. I had selected the 5.1 audio option in the disc's menu prior to beginning playback. I stopped playback after experiencing the aforementioned problems, went back to the disc's menu the selected the 2-channel option which played back fine with no dropouts and no sync problems. Not wishing to experience this concert in 2-channel, I then decided to switch to my receiver's multi-channel analog inputs, since I also have the player connected in this manner. The audio played back fine and wasn't out of sync. So here's my question: Presumably, the multi-channel analog audio is decoded by the player from the disc's 5.1 digital tracks, so why didn't I experience the same drop outs and out-of-sync playback that I did when I was listening to the player's coaxial digital output thru my receiver? Or, is there a separate multi-channel analog track on the disc, as well? I felt like in some way this disc was defective and I'm going to exchange it for another one. One other note, the digital audio from another disc played back OK, the night before, so I don't think it's a hardware or cableing issue. What do you say? Thanks! BTW, if you want to experience an absolutely glorious Christmas concert by the best choir and orchestra on the planet...get this disc!
