The SC-97 is in another room, but the remote control DSP setting was on "Automatic". When I checked the disc, the "Audio" setting button was on DTS-Master Audio. When the AVR rebooted, and we started the disc again, the AVR display showed "DTS-MA".
Master volume level was perhaps -15 or so. It was loud, but not ear splitting. However the scene was protracted.
I'm not sure what the indicator light said (reading glasses were not on) but I think it said "Wireless". It is right below the IR remote sensor. It did not seem like a system "alarm" or "overload" indicator?

@ked in owners manual. Check owners manual under troubleshooting. There is reference to the wireless light blinking. Page 122 section 13. Check for speaker wire strands if AVR powers off and blue wireless light is blinking.
Otherwise, a couple ideas.
Unfortunately with the AVR located in another room makes it nearly impossible to see what is happening at the exact moment of the event.
Have you been able to duplicate the event. If so, maybe start the scene where the event occurs. A couple minutes before the event. So you can walk into the other room and [email protected]
@k at the front display to see if any warnings display and what happens.
Master volume level is close to what I listen too. From past discussions in this thread. Similar MVL to what others have stated. Although I have noticed most recent UHD and Bluray movies over the last two years. I usually am listening at -10.0 to -12.0 Master Volume Level (MVL.)
There is an input ATT that lights when the input signal level is distorted. It can be turned on/off in the audio setting menu.
The wireless blinking blue and also the HDMI will blink blue until communications link are established. They will turn solid blue when the link is established. I would SWAG that the blinking blue wireless is an after effect of the AVR rebooting and re establishing it’s link again.
I would try to duplicate the event. Watch the front display. Make sure your display is not dimmed or off mode.
Check all your wiring connections to and from Inputs, outputs, speaker connections. They can come loose overtime. Also [email protected]
@k for any loose strand of speaker wire that may be close to any speaker terminal on AVR and speaker.
There maybe an event log located within the secret menu (service mode.) If you can find a service manual pdf for the 97. I’m sure it would be listed in there as well as other things to check.
