This is not the analog problem. When decoding any audio track and passing the resulting audio via
the P1400's analog outputs, the P1400 will not pass any L & R channel low (<100 Hz) frequency audio to the subwoofer if the speakers are set to "small." It just removes it totally. This is slightly different than what you are describing, it does not reset the speakers to "large." It will work correctly if you reset the speakers sizes every time you turn on the unit, or if you set the L & R speakers to "large." If set to large, the settings will "stick" so the user does not have to go back into the setup screen and reset the speaker sizes to the more standard "small" setting.
It can be difficult to detect this problem with standard 5.1 audio tracks because the P1400 will pass normal LFE track audio, and it has been reported to correctly pass low frequency center channel audio to the subwoofer (I have not attempted to test this). It just does not properly handle the L & R channel audio.
I also have the most current firmware, and this problem has not been fixed. To test your unit try the following:
1. Set your speaker sizes to all small, which is probably what you would want to do anyway.
2. Play a 2-channel Blu-ray or standard DVD with low base. (I use concert disks for this test since nearly everyone that I have seen has a 2-channel audio option.)
3. At this point, all audio below 100 Hz information should be passed to the subwoofer. Check your subwoofer to make sure.
4. Turn-off the P1400, and then restart the player
5. Replay the same disk and you will find that your subwoofer is asleep.
6. Go back to the P1400's setup screen and reset the speaker sizes (change to large, save, then reset to small, save, then exit the setup screen).
7. Replay the disk one more time, and the subwoofer will be active.
8. You must go through this routine every time you power-up the P1400, or just set your L & R speakers to large if they are full range, and leave them set this way and the settings will stick.
