Hello all!

I'm having audio problems with my MTS PVR. I'm connected to a Denon AVR-591 with HDMI.

Everytime I turn on the PVR, or switch back to it from being on a different HDMI input in the tuner, I lose audio. I have to go to Menu->Settings->Audio->Digital Audio Output. I don't make any changes (i.e. keep it on Surround), but I hit Save, and then everything works. I haven't changed anything though.

I occasionally, but rarely, get speaker "pops" as well. I can't say I noticed when then happen, but when I read this thread: http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=128309, I'm thinking the pops may be at commercial breaks.

The pops bug me less than the drops, since the loss in audio is EVERY time!

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I assume you mean different input on the AVR. Try simply switching channels on the MTS PVR to "wake up" the signal. I haven't heard of this sort of issue with the Denon being responsible. What happens when you switch to other inputs on the Denon - say Tuner, DVD, etc. Do those work properly? Have you tried a different input on the AVR for the PVR temporarily?

Here's a post on HDMI issues. Try turning the equipment on in a different order or simply waiting for a few seconds for the handshakes to all occur?

The "pops" are often related to audio format changes - say DD5.1 to DD2.0, but again, I would not blame the AVR in this instance.

I was having the exact same problem with my older JVC reciever. I would get loud pops when HD channels would switch from 5.1 to 2.0 for commercials. It appears the older reciever didn't like something but since replacing it with a new pioneer the problem has ceased.

I wouldn't say to run out and definitely buy a new reciever, but it sure sounds like the exact issue I had.
