Simonize, I'll be getting mine between December 5 and 12 so patience! Meanwhile, consider these options which have a definite impact on sound (in my case):
1) Go to your amplifier's menu and see if HDMI control is ON or OFF. In my case leaving HDMI control ON means constant negociation between amp and TV and audio comes in an out (for minutes at a time)
2) Go to the TV menu and check to see if HDMI control is ON. This one you want to turn off. While turning TV ON and OFF, audio drops for long durations.
3) If, like me, you have multiple HDMI outputs on your amp, well, forget about that second output. The amp MAY see the Panlog device as an impossible output to resolve and cut sound on it. So disconnect anything from the second output and insert the Panlong between the amp and the TV. Which, in the end, might be what you had been doing all along. In that case, forget about that.
Otherwise, it's just another 40$ waste for both you and I. Meant to simplify our quiet listening, yet another cunsumer catch for an unresolved, simple issue.
