Help!


I just purchased a Yamaha HTR-6190. Since its installation I have started to receive wierd Video/Audio dropouts using HDMI.


The drop out happens one of two ways.

1. Audio cuts out and then starts up again, no poping. I have not had the "Boom" occur on any effected BDs yet.

2. Video goes to a blanket green, then static, audio still playing (occasional cut off).


My setup is as follows.


Yamaha HTR-6190, SN series Y0520....

Energy CF-30 (Front)

Infinity Primus HCS Centre

Infinity Primus SR/SL

JBL PB8 Sub

Samsung BD-1500

Toshiba 42XV545U


I am using HDMI 1.3a compliant HDMI cables, but they are and the cheaper side. I have been reading a lot on the forums and I am considering replacing the cables and the Sammy BD player which I have had for just over a month.


Thanks,



the fat man

Can you turn off "Deep Color" either on the Toshiba or the Samsung? Doing this sometimes resolves issues like this.

I have looked on both the Toshiba and Samsung.


The Toshiba has v.x. Colour and that is currently set to on.


On the Sammy there is an option under HDMI in the setup menu for Anynet+ HDMI (HDMI-CEC) and that is currently set to on as well.


Thanks

Try turning each one off separately and then together and see what happens.


good luck,

Ok, I've tried that and no go.


I am using Cars Blue Ray to test as I can reproduce the issue at the same spot every time.


Some further details.


My amp is in Straight audio mode.

BR is in TrueHD.


During the opening Race Scene between the 'black outs' and the race cars whipping by as the audio comes to a peak on the last set the audio cuts out. On my AVR display it shows it trying to figure out the audio and then the sound cuts out. The video stays on my tv at the correct res. and at 1080p.


If I switch the BR from TrueHD channel (1st option) to Dolby MultiChannel (2nd option) the audio returns. If I play the BR from the start in MultiChannel I do not have any issues. Would the problem be at this point my BR player or the AVR?


The BR player is in Audiophile Bitstream mode for output. Downsampling is turned off and PCM support is enabled.


Thanks

If it happens in the same spot every time it is not a "handshake" issue. Is cars a BD Java disc? That may be the problem and usually a firmware update is in order.

The Sammy is at latest f/w. I updated my Yamaha as well today before posting my original reply.


Cars is not a BD Java disc.


The problem is it is not limited to BD
, while watching Ghostbusters on DVD I got the same thing, in Dolby Digital and DTS modes at random spots.


Watching V for Vendetta during the opening scene and the flaming V is on screen it is bad enough that it causes the video to drop out momentarily.

Well, I got desperate...



It is my opinion that Samsung needs to work on their products. I had two of my buddies come over, both with different branded BD players.


A Panasonic BD30K (1.1, latest f/w) and a Sony 350 (2.0, latest f/w) and both performed flawlessly.


I am going to go and exchange my Samsung BD-1500 for a Panasonic BD35.


I suggest anyone looking at this product, if you are planning on using its Dolby TrueHD capabilities to look elsewhere.
