I have this minor annoyance I'm hoping someone can help me with. I used the search function and came up empty. Every couple of minutes, the audio on my Marantz SR7000 receiver will cut out for a second or two. Is this a common problem?
The HD receiver is being rented from my cable provider, Comcast. The HDTV is a Mitsubishi 55805. Thanks in advance,

Eric

Onkyo claims this a change to the Dolby broadcast. I can't post links, so you'll have to go to onkyo dot com, make your way to the receiver's FAQ section to find the audio dropout posting.

(I know you don't have an Onkyo, but the problem sounds the same.)

I had a sr7000 up to about a month ago and never had that problem w/direct tv hd . maybe its the cable broadcast.

The SR7000 does not have the audio pickup delay that some of the later model Marantz recievers have. My guess is that it is either the source (your cable company or the network affiliates) or your SR7000 has a problem.

I think you guys may be on to something. My cable line has been split several times. All my connections are good so I think I may try a good cable amplifier. Any suggestions?
