bazzer:Ryrager: I think the ET box has the potential to be good.... not great but good.He insists the digital audio out problems are signal based, yet other audio outputs are unaffected. Some feedback to aid in testing would be helpful. Smarmy comments are not helpful. If my box reports signal quality 100%, what else am I to think?
I've had the same problem with signal outputs. I was watching TVNZ 6 the other day, the optical audio was up and down every few seconds. Signal quality was 100% and strength 60%, picture quality was perfect right through. I switched to TV3 and had similar problems. I've also had it on TV 1.
Last night during NCIS on TV3 I had the optical audio drop out and the audio on the RCA outputs was fine. had the TV speakers and the receiver on and it was very obvious when only the TV speakers were going and since the Dolby Digital light on my receiver is as subtle as a brick it was easy to notice it going off.
I do not believe Peter's spin about it being interference as in a digital signal I would expect the picture to be affected too.
Returning the unit is not an option, it would just be nice to get firmware that works so I can start recommending these to my friends (and the addition of the "bypass" option was much appreciated so it is not all complaints).
