On the TEAC HD-B6T I have the audio piped through to an ONKYO receiver for audio output via the S/P DIF optical port.
Every now and then the audio output drops and then continues.
Is this something that happens on the TEAC HD-B6T or is this an isolated case?
It was a bit of a struggle to plug the optical digital cable into the S/P DIF port and I'm wondering if it's now 'clocking' errors on the link or something.
I have read that the S/P DIF port does not have flow control and retry facilities and needs to re-sync the clock if there are issues.
If others have this configuration and have no problems with optical digital audio throughput from HDTV to whatever audio output they're using then I may have to get the device replaced.
There is a D-Audio which I could check[see below, now checked], but I thought I'd ask the question before I started swapping cables around.
The audio issue is not to do with the quality of the signal as it plays just fine via HDMI and USB(playback).
It just seems to be the S/P DIF optical port.
The cable was connected to another Freeview box in the past and worked just fine to the ONKYO receiver, so it's not a problem with the cable or the receiver.
[inserted update] Just swapped out the optical digital cable for a digital RCA and I'm getting the same thing.
The audio just drops very now and then.
The quality of the audio output is fine, it just seems to drop out now and then for a second or two.
Any ideas or thoughts on the subject.
Thanks in advance for any info.
