My 16 month old forced a new purchase of the Sony BDP because he in his push button frenzy pressed the signal select button (which I did not even know existed until now). Unfortunately, I did not find that out until I had already replaced the Samsung Blu-Ray player with the Sony (and found it had no sound either). The problem now is that the sound keeps clipping out regularly about every three seconds (as does the Dolby Digital display) making it impossible to enjoy anything from the Sony. I've read through the Sony manual and have set the audio settings as best as I can understand, I've checked the HDMI cable connections on both ends, and I've learned so much more about my Pioneer setup/audio settings, but am still experiencing the problem. I'm not sure what information/details to provide, but has anyone else experienced this situation, and/or resolved it?
