I am new to this site and to home theater. The information on this site has been very helpful but I have a problem that I hope someone can help with. I just picked up the Onyko HT-760 (TX-SR501 receiver). I connected it with a digital optical cable to my Panasonic DVD CV52. The sound is great since before my receiver I just had sound from my TV (I'll never go back to that). The problem is about ten times during a DVD in 5.1 surround sound mode I get sound dropout (I think that’s the term) for a split second. I am going to try a new optical cable, the dvd player only has optical out no coaxial. Do you think there is a compatibility issue between the DVD player and receiver? Does anyone have this setup without this problem? I might get a new player but I want to be sure this problem will be fixed. I do get surround sound out of the DVD it just drops now and then and I think its only when in surround sound mode. It happens on more than on DVD too. Thanks in advance.
