Question about Onkyo Ht-s5400 7.1 Home Theater Speaker System Hts5400
I am having a problem with audio drop outs when playing certain blu-ray discs through the Onkyo HT-S5400 receiver. The player is a Panasonic DMP-BDT210 Integrated-Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player. It is connected via HDMI cable to the Onkyo receiver. I do not have the problem with every disc. The sound drop outs occur every minute or every two minutes and last about 10 seconds each time.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Your Plasma's native resolution is 720P. Go into the Blu Ray's output setup. you can choose 480p 480i 720p 1080i and 1080p. Set it for 720p that should clear up the issue.You may have to run Component directly to the TV since you only have 1 HDMI input and you can run Digital coax or optical to your AV receiver for audio. On a 50" TV the difference between 720p and 1080p using "GOOD" cables cannot be seen by the human eye. Above 50, yes it is noticeable.
Hope this helps.

Hi, as the Onkyo receiver you have does not have HDMI switching, the only thing it will do for you with a Blu-Ray player is process the audio signals. The video from the BR player will have to go directly to an HDMI input of your hi def TV. In this case, either Sony or Panasonic BR player will be equal. Assuming you keep the Onkyo unit you have, you would want to use the optical digital output from the BR player as the audio source into one of the optical, digital audio inputs on the Onkyo. In an ideal world, your receiver would some that does do HDMI switching. This way, all the audio and video signals from any audio or video source would be automatically switched and channeled through 1 simple HDMI cable into your hi def TV. This will make you life simpler as ther would be no need to select an appropriate input on the TV, as well as one on the receiver. That said, buying a new receiver in addition to a BR player is more costly. Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

Try hooking the Panasonic up straight to the tv without going through the receiver. If it displays a picture its obviously not the blu-ray player. May also be a problem with the HDMI cable itself. Hope this helps.

I think this one is for the Onkyo wizards:
I would write them via email here:
However I did find this 2 page hookup manual with nice notes at link listed below that may help you solve the mystery:
(seems you may have to assign the digital input)
Assigning the Digital Input
If there’s no sound, you’ll need to assign the digital inputs as
necessary using the setup menus on the TX-SR606’s display.
If you connect your DVD player to the AV receiver’s COAXIAL 1
DIGITAL IN, and your cable/satellite receiver to the COAXIAL 2
DIGITAL IN, as shown, it’s not necessary to assign the digital input.
The onscreen setup menus appear only on a TV that is
connected to the HDMI OUT. If your TV is connected to the composite video or S-Video MONITOR OUT, or the
COMPONENT VIDEO OUT, use the TX-SR606’s display when changing settings.
Thanks for using FixYa!
