Sound problems playing DVDs

Hey y'all,

I recently purchased a Sony STRDH520 amp and Sony BDPS 390 multiregion Blu-ray/DVD player and having some strange sound issues.

When I put in a dvd I get no sound but if I flick to a different channel on the amp (say, Game) then back to DVD it works fine. If at any point I go back to the menu again I lose the sound and have to do the switching again. Flippin' pain.

Not come across this before, any suggestions?

:)

Is the AVR automatically putting itself into a muted state as you fire it up? (so instead of changing channel to get the sound back, does it also come back if you turn the volume up/down, or pressing mute?)

No, unfortuntely not the case. Tried volume changes, mute on/off and audio formats changes with no success. A borrowed LG player did not seem to have the same issue. :confused:

Which suggests the issue is with the player and not the amp. How is the player connected to the amp and have you tried using different cables? Is the issue specifically with DVD discs or is it also apparent with Blu-ray titles?

Using HDMI cable which was used with the LG without issues but will try another cable tonight. Can't remember exactly but think it was only with the DVD and will also try that tonight.

Will post results later. Thanks for the help so far. have a nice evening.
