    Is there a way to bypass the AVR 300's automatic digital audio signal detection? Or, to rephrase, is there a way to prevent the digital signal from being interrupted when navigating DVDs? Any action that stops the flow of the DVD, such as pausing, skipping chapters, layer changes, etc. causes the 300 to lose sync with the digital audio signal, and it often takes a full second or more for it to lock back on. This may seem trivial, but it starts to be a real problem when trying to make use of certain features. A good example is the Simpsons Season Six discs. There is an option to view deleted scenes during playback of an episode. An icon appears at the appropriate times, and you hit enter to view the deleted scene. The probloem is this: upon hitting enter, the audio signal drops out for a moment, and we lose sound at the beginning of the deleted scene, and then we lose sound again when it reverts back to the regular episode.

    Is there a way around this? If not, is there any possibility that a future software upgrade could solve the problem? It would be really great if there was simply a button to tell the processor to stay in Dolby Digital or DTS mode for the entire length of a program.
