Firmware is DBP10X-50-0422. It was the latest one given through auto-notify.
Reset per instructions.
Will have to try the AVR bypass.
To get 5.1, optical is only choice.
I'll have to try that setup, too. Right now both HDMI and coax/optic are bitstream.
Watched an hour of TV tonight and nothing happened. Weird.
Since you are running your TV set top box through the OPPO you should DEFINITELY upgrade to the Public Beta 0522B firmware before diagnosing TV playback problems further. There are important fixes in there for folks using the player's HDMI Inputs.
Download for Public Beta from the OPPO Digital web site for install via a USB stick:
Also, for audio or video problems while viewing TV through the OPPO, the first thing to do is verify the channel you are watching doesn't have its own problems at the moment. For example, the periodic audio dropouts you described are the sort of thing that might happen if a cable company is having problems retransmitting a channel. To test this, just try a few other channels and see whether they ALL have the problem. If not, then try the problem channel again later and see if the cable TV people have "fixed" it.
