Lifestyle 650 - Bug - No sound from UHD-Player
Some days ago I replaced my old Bluray player with the UHD-Player Panasonic DP-UB824EGK and I noticed that the Lifestyle has a problem with the sound output from this player (no sound). My setup: The player has two HDMI outputs, one for video+audio and one for audio only. The first one is directly connected to my TV, the latter to port HDMI2 on the Lifestyle. The Lifestyle has latest firmware installed, the player too (1.47), CEC is disabled in all devices. The problem occurs if the Lifestyle is turned on and no other HDMI port with an active source was selected before switching to HDMI2, e.g. starting directly on HDMI2.
I found a workaround to make the sound working again by switching to another active source port on the Lifestyle and the switching back to HDMI2. This helps 90%, but sometimes I must even powercycle the Lifestyle prior to this.
What does NOT help:
- Turn on Lifestyle before player
- Turn on player before Lifestyle
- Powercycle Lifestyle and/or player
I suppose the problem occurs, because the player sends audio only and if this is the first selected source after a Lifestyle powercyle something fails to initialize correctly.
The source audio info screen on the remote shows crap like "2.0" in this case. If sounds works correctly it displays somethink like "1080i DTS 5.1".
I hope my explanations are clear for you and help to fix this bug.
