    Hi,

    I need to ask for help / feedback if possible please from fellow forum members who have a Toshiba HD-DVD Player & a recent Pioneer Receiver.

    I have an XE1 (firmware 4.0) & an SC-LX81 connected via HDMI. I have the XE1 configured to bitstream audio via HDMI to the LX81.

    I get regular audio dropouts when playing any English Dolby Digital Plus Soundtrack from Universal or Paramount HD-DVDs through the LX81. The problem is fully repeatable, happens every 93 seconds from the time the movie starts & continues throughout.

    I know another user has reported the same issue with their EP35 & their LX51.

    I'd be very grateful if anyone else who may have these 2 types of equipment could please take a few mins to run a test on their systems & post back results please ?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Thanks very much for letting me know.

    To be honest I'm not going to get too fixated on the issue at this stage since HD-DVD is discontinued, & my XE-1 is out of warranty, I can't see either Toshiba or Pioneer entertaining any of their time trying to sort it out.

    If my XE-1 was within warranty I may have pursued it a little more, & since I don't have a single BluRay in my collection that has a Dolby Digital Plus soundtrack, I've no way of definately proving its the receiver to Pioneer.

    I'm very happy with the XE-1 in all other respects - its a marvelous piece of hardware in general. I'm also very happy with the performance of the SC-LX81. So I'm content to just send LPCM from the XE-1 to the SC-LX81 for the affected HD-DVDs.

    Thanks again for providing your feedback.

    All the best!
