Just noticed this last night..... My DV79 is connected to an Optoma H78 via HDMI (see KIT in signature below). Last night I tried to play some music from a classical CD. Each time I tried to do this, the player would try and then instantly return to the standard display (showing overall length of CD and available tracks) without returning an error message. In some cases the music could be heard for a split second and then it would stop and return to the standard display as described above. Just to try I disconnected the HDMI lead from the back of the DV79 and discovered that the CD could play without any problem. During playback I then plugged back in the HDMI lead which instantly stopped the CD playback. I tried on several occasions to switch of the player, but the same problem keeps happening. Obviously, for a player of this calibre, I want the best of both worlds! HDMI video and CD playback! Anyone know about this problem. Arcam engineers? Is this a firmware issue (which I updated recently - i.e. there is no parental guidance playback menu). Thanks in advance!
