I'm loving my new 1066/1075/1050 setup, but I'm experiencing some annoying issues with the pre/pro. Whenever I feed it a digital signal, it doesn't lock on to the proper format right away, so I get silence for the first few seconds that the source is playing. During DVD menus this isn't too bad (because who cares really), but I've tossed in a few CDs already and had the beginning of the first song cut off because the 1066 doesn't sync fast enough. On the status screen there's no version number, so I assume it's recent firmware (I have DD-EX capability and the EX/ES logos are on the front). Is this just a quirk I have to live with? edit: Forgot to talk about the popping noise I mention in the title. Basically, there's an audible pop (not loud, but loud enough for me to hear easily) when switching between different formats. For example, when browsing a DVD menu in DD, if I change the audio option to DTS and start the movie, there's a pop when the DD turns off and DTS kicks in.
