    First off, I did a few searches and cannot find anything. With that being said maybe my search was not correct.

    I have Pioneer VSX-D712 receiver and when watching movies on my Sony DVP-NS575P (I know not the best equipment) but it will be upgraded as soon as the lottery is won. Oh back to my question...when watching dvd's something happens in the process that the receiver jumps from digital to analog and then back to digital. This process is very quick but it causes a cut out of sound on the movie.

    I am using component cable from the video to my Philip's 47" HDTV and I am running from the digital out on the back of the dvd player to my receiver.

    Would a dirty dvd, or dvd player or something goofy like that cause this.

    If someone can maybe shed some light on this one I would really appreciate it. It will also get my wife off my back...

    Thanks

    Ned

    Hey Ned Lyons,

    While I have not had that exact problem the only problem with drop out I have had. Is DD dropping out on Starz channel. But anyway back to your problem, lol. My suggestion would be to try another digital cable between your dvd player and your reciever. You may have a cable going bad and vibration may be causing your drop out. If that is not the problem then it may be your reciever. I would see if a friend would be willing to bring his reciever over and hook it up and see if the problem persist or not?

    If it only happens once per movie, it's probably just the result of the layer change.

    It could be the player. My other player, a Sony 560D started doing something like this randomly. It would still display video, but the audio started to flub, go to analog, then stop all together, so I replaced it. My daugher now has the Sony in her room and it doesn't seem to have this problem via analog.
