I know its been almost a year , but i had the same problem and after a few days i found out it was my optical cable causing the issue. The optical cable was brand new and all of a sudden it just started dropping sound for 1 sec every now and then. i changed the optic cable and all has been good since

It is possible there are separate sound level functions for the DVD player, the tv and the satellite box, try the different remotes for each by unlocking the volume control on the satellite remote until you get them close or use the device specific remote volume controls. I would also try and use HDMI if available for the DVD instead of composite. If the volume controls are different it will show on the tv, might also go through all audio settings for each device. Some devices are pre-amped or send out strong sound signals while others are line level outputs designed to be amped by the output device, in this case your tv I believe. The HDMI vs stereo audio that goes with composite may be the cause or it could be in the settings of the device. Worst case is to remember to drop volume before you switch back so you don't ruin speakers.
Double check the condition of the cables, make sure nothing is shorted or broken.
Is your music source 1 volt peak to peak (or line level)? If not add a preamplifier if input is lower than that or attenuate the input if higher than that. If you have line level input, make sure the input is turned up to an optimal level for output with headphones. See that you are getting correct response on the input LED level indicators. If all are lit up, you need to attenuate the signal before it plugs into the amp.
Check your system presets, check to make sure DSP is "OFF"" at least for now. And then check to see if you have "Briged" "Stereo" or "Mono" selected. If you plugged one speaker in and plugged it into the jacks for the bridged configuration, you are fine, if you plugged into one or the other, or used two speakers, You would want "Stereo" at least for testing. "X-over" would only be needed for Bi-amping a mono imput. And scroll through the other presets to see that limiters are off, and that system is not muted.
Then turn up the amplifier volume.
If you wired 3 speakers to it, that might be why.
Other possibilities are impedance mismatch between output and speakers,

If the unit shows any signs of having been dropped, there may be broken solder tracks internally. such an event as being dropped could cause some of the issues you are encountering.
As long as the gain is adjusted properly for the input, there should be no problems with the amp.
The head unit preamp output is probably a little low or there is too much voltage drop on the RCA's. It doesn't take much of a drop when you are working with such a low level to begin with. That's one reason that Alpine gives you the option to select an input level.
It's also possible that the input sensitivity of the Alpine is slightly high. Electronic components usually have a nominal value and their actual value can range up to 20% from that nominal. But again, you have a gain adjustment to insure that the amp is not overdriven. Make sure that it's set so there's no distortion and you should be OK.
Have seen regulated voltages drop a volt on two causing this problem . the regulator with the low output needs changing. Voltages can be checked pretty easy at the one large connector coming from the regulator sectionto the dsp board.
Start troubleshooting the problem by checking the physical layer (Plugs, Jacks, Cables). Replace them with known working equipment.
Once you have traced the line from your Cisco to each other end (through to ISP, and to network switch), then reset your error counters, by restarting the cisco.
Check the ethernet interfaces on the network switch and the Cisco. Make sure they are both set to Autonegotiate or both set to the same settings like 100mbs Full-duplex. If they are not communicating the same way lots of errors will be generated.
The A1 has an internal self diagnostic program which you can go through to find the fault. You can access the diagnostic program by simultaneously pushing some buttons on the front panel. The Yamaha service manual for the A1 tells how to do it and what the diagnostic codes mean. You can get a copy of the service manual on the web from several suppliers for a small fee.
