    john dawson,

    i emailed your service dept. on sunday,recieved email of matt yesterday and recieved sw disc today.
    great sevrice thanks :)

    straight away i installed sw version 1.81.
    then put cd in(dido-no angel).bearing in mind ive been getting drop outs not only with dts but also cd/dd.set the disc away then went in kitchen to knock up some grub.
    a couple of minutes into the second song the dreaded drop out was back.

    now what im getting at is,i have a combie-boiler(in the kitchen),and the dropout happened when the combie kicked into life.at first i thought no,so i waited until it kicked in again,the same thing happened i had a drop out.

    ive had no dropouts when the boiler has been either on or off.so it seem that for the last 18 months ive been blaming my poor player.

    anyone got any ideas how to remedy this prob.i'm thinking of running a new cable straight from the fuse box to the socket.
    would this stop this:confused: :( .

    cheers carl

    cheers Jasonjo ,

    i'll look into them.
    i wonder if the combie's been wired into the down stairs ring main?
    and causing a voltage drop.
    any electricians out there:confused:


    just been down stairs turning the hot water tap on then off for a couple of minutes.had about 10 dropouts,every time i turned the tap on.
    cant believe i've never notice this before.
