Ok so I bought a good coax digital cable. 75ohm coax video digital.

The sound difference using this is amazing
Very crisp with each speaker producing its own sound channel as it should.

I still get the odd random audio drop out when watching dvds.

Its never in the same place so the discs are fine.

Its usually at the start it might drop out for a second 3 times in a row and it wont happen again.

I dont understand why this is happening.

The cable is the exact spec I need and the connectors make a very tight and secure connection.

Any more ideas?

PS I cant find my old thread on this and thats why I created a new one.

In my case---dropouts occur because my home theater mAXES OUT THE POWER COMING TO THE CIRCUITOF MY COTTAGE---AT LOUD VOLUMES CAN NOT HAVE STOVE ON OTHERWISE DROPOUTS---SOMETHING TO CONSIDER. Sorry for capitals---in a hurry. With a good system you can be using 2000watts or more.

Hi my dvd player is an Eltax DV-251.

Its a nice dvd player as it plays any old junk media you throw at it.

Anyway...it seems that the losses in sound are when you first fire up the dvd player it takes a few seconds for the sound drops to go.

Its wierd, cant figure it out.

It would also help to know what make/model of receiver you have.

But if I were to a point a finger, your DVD player might be causing this issue with the digital bitstream. If you have a spare DVD player, I would try connecting it to the system to see if the same thing happens. Cables rarely go "bad" (unless they're physically damaged, of course...).
