z550 cutting in and out?
I'm watching Punisher Warzone right now and my Z5500's pop in and out sometimes? could it be a power thing? usually when im gaming or listening to music theres no problems. sound card is in the sig.

Have you checked your drivers lately?

Is the movie a legit version or is it a DL, if do is the audio track corrupt?

Try a different movie on DVD and see if sound is stable.

nah, i tried to playback the section that cut out to see if it was corrupt audio, its not and the lcd screen on the z5500's reciever is reading signal still. i will double check my drivers for updates.

I'd say codec related. Maybe update those.

How do you have them connected?
If it's via Coax/Optical, you may have to play a "blank" sound file to keep the unit "paying attention".

If it's hooked in via 3x miniplugs, it's probably a broken file.

well the movie is fine at times, but cuts out every now and then thats all

Are you really pounding them? There is an overheat sensor build into them, if you listen to them really really loud, after a little while they'll turn off and on quickly to prevent them from overheating... this MIGHT be it, happened to me a few times, but music was very loud and for at least 30 mins :biggrin:

LOL wasnt even at max maybe near 50%. and i never max it out on the volume bar on computer. i make sure i run all the volumes at 50% on the video players and itunes etc. then i turn it up on the speakers
