Sound cuts out every so often when using Coax Digital In
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).
I have the same problem with the HTS 3544 unit. It cuts out about once a minute when using the direct input from the TV. Is the only answer to replace the unit?
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.

First, you need to run the coax cable from your satellite dish to the "cable in" input on the back of your satellite receiver, not the Bose. If your satellite receiver has an HDMI OUT, and if the Bose has an HDMI IN,run hdmi OUT from the rec. to the Bose IN, then keep your HDMI connection from the Bose OUT to the TV IN as is. Make sure you've selected the correct input on the TV menu. As it is right now, you're not delivering any video signal at all to the TV!! -only audio(red and white). There are a couple other ways, but they won't give you the same quality. I assume this is HD, right? If you CAN do it this way (i.e. if you have enough HDMI ins and outs), it's the best possible hookup and you won't need the composite (red, white and yellow) at all. By the way, it's the yellow connector that carries the video signal; the red and white are audio left and right. If you can't hook it up all HDMI, disconnect the "separate cable" (I'm not sure what that is or what kind of cable or what it's for)and plug in the yellow connector into video IN on the Bose.
If you tv has a hdmi input, connect it to the Yahama receiver hdmi output (out). If you are using a satellite receiver, digital converter, or a cable box with hdmi output(s), connect them to the Yahama hdmi input (in) for video and audio signals. If the above box(es) do not have hdmi capabilities, then connect the box(es) to the Yahama with either component (preferred), svideo, or yellow RCA compsite video jack (least preferred) for the video signal. For audio, connect the box(es) with optical or coax (preferred) or left-right-center-front-rear patch cords.
It really all depends on what outputs are available on the boxes and/or signal source(s).
I missed this cause I "assumed" the video/audio cable that came with the PS3 was a HDMI to Audio/Video cable, and didn't even see the SCART port in the back of the PS3. So I thought I didn't want to lose 1080p ..etc etc. Anyways. MX 3950D still good =)
HDTV is not carried via coaxial cable from tuner, you need HDMI or the 5 RCA cables that are different colors. I forget if they are called component or composite, I think they are called composite, the R and W are sound. If you run the HDMI or composite cables to your TV, there should be a variable out or audio out on the back of the TV that outputs ANY sound coming into the TV, like Wii, DVD, tv, etc. So if you want to listen to tv sound, just pipe the audio out to the receivers available input and turn it up. Cant be used with mag input (turntable) all others are compatible. Did this answer your question? Sat cables are usually kept under 130 ft from the dish, and the dish receiver can output coaxial signal over 400ft on RG-6 cable. HDMI is limited and can get very expensive. Does your sat box have a coaxial digital out (orange RCA) you can use that if your receiver can read it, usually associated with the DVD input or video input, but only for digital encoded programs.
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.......
Wow, I have the same problem. I have even tried using never used DVDS, it just freezes after a while. I will get small glitches every few minutes. I am calling Samsung tommorow and raising hell, this was a Christmas present and I am embarrased. I also use HDMI and have changed the set up to 720P.
No digital sound comes from Digital Coax or Optical and in order to utilize a digital signal u need HDMI or Component although component wont be truly digital. Try running everything to the TV then the sound out of the TV into the sound system. If its a high def source like high def cable box then use the optical conection on the back of the aquos and plug than into your surround system. if ur system doesnt support Optical or digital coax then you need an updated surround system. If i misunderstood your question im sorry. If u live in CT though stop by Circuit city in North haven. either myself, Dave, or my associate Justin should be able to help you out. and dont worry we're not on commission or anything.
