Clicking noise from Onkyo TX-SR606 during television broadcast
The receiver clicks repeatedly between various audio modes (Mono - Digital 5.1 - Stereo - Mono - Digital 5.1, etc.) during which time no sound is heard. This can happen at any time, and lasts between 1-2 seconds to 10-15 seconds. Quite annoying. Could it be the HDMI cable connecting the Onkyo receiver with the Samsung Time Warner HDTV cable box? Any suggestions?

Go to Onkyousa.com, move mouse cursor to support, click on owner's manuals, click on receivers, click view archived receiver models, click TX-SR606 (both"quick setup" and "HTS 7100 for the full manual").
contact onkyo and ask for a disc that you use threw the cd player via a toslink . The disc will upgrade your avr ,thus overwriting any problems you had. My tx-sr705 had an issue with popping during blu ray playback while the dts-master audio was being used. I got a disc that upgraded the chip that utilizes the codec's.
The PS3 should default to the DOLBY DIGITAL sound output so your ONKYO should be setup to the Digital input, TV logic is a matrix similated multi-channel and I doubt if any PS software is in the DTS audio format, look at your game software disc`s and they will inform you of the audio capabilities.
If you're running an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver, best quality would be through the Dolby Digital, because that broadcasts in 7.1 HD Audio Format. There should be a way to get a default setting when the optical input is detected in your receiver.
