Samsung DVD-HD850 Audio issues

426 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Foxbat121
Hello all,

I am new here so let me know if I am in the wrong area.

I have a Toshiba 57h93, Samsung DVD-HD850, and a Harmon Kardon AVR-55. My connections include: dvd connected to the TV via HDMI-DVI cable and a optical cable connecting the DVD and receiver.

When I play a DVD or cd and I skip a scene or track, the audio will stop until I skip forward a scene or two or turn off the receiver and turn it back on. This is the second player and the same problem.

Any ideas?

My HK DPR-1005 receiver is a little slow locking in to a digital input. It sometimes misses the beginning of each song on a CD if the time between tracks is long. HK receivers seem to have issues locking in to digital streams and staying locked during skips and between tracks.
I have noticed that as well, however, I had a Pioneer DV-333 and it did not have this issue. There is no delay, if I let it play the audio will not come back at all.
It sounds like a receiver issue to me. Do you have any HD STB? If you do, what happens when you switch channels assuming you also connect the digital audio from STB to your receiver? I saw a few posts about receiver lost sound when digital audio signal is briefly interrupted.

The reason why your Pioneer DVD player works is probably because Pio keep the digital audio alive/sync when skip forward.
I am sorry but could you tell me what HD STB is? I am a newbie to all of this.
STB=Set Top Box, (cable or satellite or OTA tuner). OTA=Over The Air
I see. Thanks! I do not have a set top box. My HD tuner is built in the TV. Is this a common problem with the Samsung? Maybe I should purchase another DVD player?
Don't know. Mine never had this problem (HD841 hooked to Panasonic receiver, older generation of HD850). Like I said, it's probably the combination of both the DVD player and your reciver's design. You may probably encounter this same issue down the road when you decide to add a STB.
