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?

What do you mean by "clipping out"?

If it's not a BIG screen, it's not a theater...

Well, clipping is probably the wrong descriptor, but the sound is coming through the speakers, and then it's not (occurs roughly every 3 seconds). Simultaneously, the Dolby Digital display also turns off when the sound goes out too.

Try changing audio formats on the blu-ray player and report back.

I've attempted that multiple times, so here is how things are setup on the BDP:
- Digital Audio Output - Auto
- DSD Output Mode - Off
- BD Audio Mix Setting - Off
- DTS Neo;6 - Cinema
- Audio DRC - Off
- Downmix - Surround

I think the mystery is solved. It appears to be the Sony BDP that is having issue. I hooked up the original Samsung player and found the problem went away. I will be returning the Sony to BestBuy. Thanks.
