Are you still having digital audio dropouts? I know that I am and at least another DVR user who works with me is having this issue.
It happens a lot on live feeds (was watching the Purdue vs Syracuse game and it was driving me up the wall) but it also occurs on some pre-recorded shows but with less frequency.
I decided to hook up my RCA Sterio Cables for the time being to get around this. I can easily switch between digital and analog inputs w/ my receiver but I shouldn't have to.
If you or anybody knows a workaround I'd like to try it. I looked on the 'SA8000HD - TWC' thread and somebody said you can set the digital audio mode in the settings to Dobly Digital vs PCM, but I think there software must be different because my Digital Audio options are 'narrow, normal, and wide' and I can't tell a difference between them to be honest.
