i just bought a tx sr 800 and a onkyo 701 6 disc dvd changer. i have them connected with a moster optical cable and i'm getting choppy sound out of it. when i start a dvd it plays, but the sound skips. kinda like a skipping cd, but it keeps up with the video. as the dvd plays, the sound gets better and better until it starts playing normally. whats going on? i've already tried a digital coaxial cable and it does the same thing. any ideas?
I'd say just get the dvd player checked out, it may need some new laser components.
turned it was the reciever, blown cap, or cap that was getting ready to blow. i don't quite remember which
