i have denon 1609 receiver and energy take classic 5.1 speaker system.


audio drops and subwoofer turning off does not happen when i watch dvd player or blu ray player. it happens only when i watch direct tv hd. it happens on every channel i watch. but on food network it happens more often than all other channels.


i can deal with the audio drops but the subwoofer is whats irritating me the most. it will stop outputting sound even though it stays on (it has a blue light in front of it telling you its on).


what i noticed is when the subwoofer stops outputting sound is when i switch channels. so when it stops outputting sound i just press input i have set to direct tv on the denon remote, and it works again. but this has gotten tiresome. i dont know why this is happening.


i just dont know what to do anymore. ive tried replacing cables and rerunning audyssey. cant fix the problem.


my denon warranty runs out this month and im considering trying that. but maybe its the energy subwoofer? if thats the case the warranty is no longer valid.


this has been pissing me off for months now.

i assumed the audyssey would set all speakers to small. minimum 80hz crossover on the back of the sub? im having the problem with hd channels on dd 5.1, i hardly watch any sd channels anymore. but, now that i think about it, when i do watch sd channels not available on hd, i dont remember ever having a problem. i believe i have it set to dd plii for sd channels. ill need to check these things today.

how is your DirecTV connected? If using HDMI trying using component video and the optical out. or connect the sat box directly to the TV and use optical from the sat box to receiver for audio.


Cable/Sat boxes are notorious for having problems with receivers.

Denon receivers have hdmi troubles with cable boxes but not directv hd equipment. Did the audio problem happen from day 1 or worked properly then later started acting up? If the latter maybe something got set wrong in the stereo. Follow jd and troubleshoot speaker and surround mode setup. Directv had some problem with 3D signals but not hdmi connections.
