Any advice would be helpful here guys and girls.. Got an AVR300 & DV79 (2-3 months old each) running a pair of Monitor Audio Silver S8s bi-amped on the front, Silver LCR centre, Silver SFX rears and a REL Stampede. All was well in the first month or so, but then increasingly when I was watching a DVD then Dolby Digital would drop out and there would be no sound (but still picture) and briefly onscreen you would see the AVR300 menu overlaying showing it flicking between Analogue and Digital sources, as if it couldn't lock on to the bitstream.. Only way to fix it was to pause/rewind the DVD and press play again, making sound return. However, over the past few days, when sound was lost the amp seemed to be having a hissy fit, with the overlay showing Dolby Digital 0.0, then PLII Movie (the default for DVD if no Dolby stream is found) and now and again you'll hear the odd splurge of sound for about half a second then all would be silent. Came to watch a DVD last night and the amp would not produce any sound (although it's still switching the video fine) and just kept flicking onscreen between Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Digital 0.0 and PLII Movie with no sound. This all only happens when using the DD chip, so i'm thinking that might have shot itself in the foot maybe? When I use CD for instance, I'm running a pair of analogue interconnects from the DV79 to the amp, all is fine for hours upon hours even now. Sorry for the long winded post but i'd love a solution or I'm going to have to send the amp off to Arcam and be without music and movies - typical - just when I'm on holiday for 2 weeks! Anyone help?? (AVR300 software = 300 - 3.01, DSP v1.12) Just as I turned the amp on to check that software version there is a sound of static through the speakers!! Turned the amp immediately to prevent any damage. HELP!
