Sorry, perhaps I've misled you as to which input this is actually happening on. I am having no issues while on the htpc input. Only getting dropouts when I'm on the component/optical input (and only if the htpc wakes up)
Perhaps I'm just misunderstanding...are you saying then that hdmi handshake issues from htpc's on a completely different input can cause video/audio dropouts when you're actually on a component/optical assigned input?
i read through the faq and the one potential resolution of running hdmi to the tv and optical to the avr is not an option for me, although i did try component straight to tv. That got rid of video dropouts, but audio dropout still ocurred. (Again, only if htpc wakes up).
I also tried different inputs and cables for htpc with same results on the component/optical input.
Sorry if i sound as though im doubting known hdmi handshake issues. I do realize they do occur; but affect other inputs you're currently centered on?
- just wanna know if im dealing with known issues and advice on workarounds or... if avr maybe faulty?
- my current short and simple resolution is to keep pc off while on component input
