    I have a home cinema projection system based around a Mitsubishi DLP projector and a 7 feet screen. The problem is with either the receiver or dvd player (in progressive scan mode), both are JVC.

    I'll be watching a film and every now and then the sound will cut out totally for about 1 second, not much, but if it happens during a piece of dialogue you can miss 2 or 3 words. It happens randomly and there is no strict timing as to when it does it. On average it will happen between 3 and 7 times throughout a film and I haven't got a clue why it happens.

    The system components are as follows:

    Mitsubishi dlp projector
    JVC XV-NA77 dvd player
    JVC RX-5032V receiver/amp
    Keff Egg KHT2005.2 speakers and subwoofer

    is the cable faulty?
    is it optical or coaxial?
    if it's coaxial is it a 75 ohm shielded lead?

    Check all cable connections ( you may well have done this)
    Is there any video jitter at the same time?

    What connection are you using between receiver and DVD player? It could help to replace the cable.
    If you use coax make sure it's a "digital cable" with 75 Ohm impedance (a proper video lead will do as it has 75 Ohm, too).

    I have the same thing happening to me when audio is running through the optical lead. I have a 10m lead that was only about £10, so i think it's probably a crap lead. When I switched to analogue for tunes on vinyl, it didn't cut out once.

    I am going to get a high quality optical lead and think this should resolve it.
