Question about Philips HTS-3555 System
I have my Satellite and Xbox360 running into my TV using HDMI, then using my TV's Coax Digital Audio out to connect sound to my Philips receiver.
However, every few minutes, the sound cuts out, and the receiver display acts as if its recognizing the signal for the first time. Posts up the DOLBYPLII message, then the sound comes back in and it goes right back displaying DI, which is what it displays the whole time the sound works flawlessly.
I tried bypassing the TV thinking it may be the culprit and hooked up my other dvd player to the receiver using the digital in as well. Same issue. Every few minutes its like it reconfigures what its decoding, and the sound cuts out while it figures it out. But the sound is constantly coming, cutting out mid song, or dialogue sometimes.
Could it be my wires? Thats the only other constant. I used a high quality Sony Digital Coax wire to connect the devices ($15 for an rca cable... gag me).
Just so you know, the "rapid replacement" unit Philips sent me WAS rapid, but it was a refurb unit, complete with scratches, and it had the same problem as my original unit. The sound still cut out when using the digital audio coax in. I sent it back and returned the original to Target.

Solution to Both our problems is this, call Philips, "it just so happens that we have a rapid replacement program for this particular system"-"there seems to be an internal electrical problem", so I'm sending it back to them.......
