You know what else... I just noticed that my PS3 HDMI connection started to do the same! Click, click, click, click, click. Again, I tried to set everything to "last valid" but no joy. I don't get why this thing is so temperamental.
But whatever- I just want my HD-DVDs to play on the computer again (which I can't with SPDIF connection because of HDCP because it thinks I'm trying to copy the audio *rolls eyes*), otherwise I'll have to throw all my HD-DVDs away (including some that I just bought!)
Well, my HTPC (where the 607 is) doesn't have a Blu-Ray drive (I use the my real stand-alone Panasonic Blu-Ray player in that room instead).
I do have a Blu-Ray drive in my desktop PC. It's connected via DVI to the LCD. Audio is analog from the sound card. Blu-Rays play fine.
I don't think HDCP requires HDMI (see example above). Also, why would dedicated Blu-Ray players include SPDIF, and Component connections if you can't use them?
However, once you introduce HDMI into the connection chain, HDCP might prevent you from using DVI and/or SPDIF (just guessing)? Try running DVI directly to the TV, and SPDIF to the 607.
As for the PS3 acting up also ... well, I don't know. Maybe reset the 607 to defaults and be sure you are using good, short, high-bandwidth HDMI v1.3 cables. Check your AC Power. Check the TV. Connect the PS3 completely/directly to the TV (also, a good test for PC ... come to think of it).
