I connected the same cable to an oppo blu-ray player and it works fine.

It is not common but it does happen. I have heard of others having occasional audio drops if they were connecting to an Onkyo receiver (which I am as well). I have not heard of a fix for it, but like I was saying it happens only on rare occasions.
In my case the sound is always intermittent and distorted.
I am worried that the audio signal is not PCM (that's all my DAC can receive).
Can you please check what signal type shows up on your Onkyo?

I read in another thread that the optical sensor is more recessed than normal in the roku dvp.
Maybe only certain optical cables that enter more deep in the socket work fine.
Can you please list which optical cable works for you? I will buy the same.
aslg wrote:Yes, thinking the same. I do not have a receiver but a hi-fi stereo DAC.
It supports stereo PCM only with sampling frequencies from 8 to 108 Khz and 16, 20, 24 bit word lengths.
I am wondering if there is something in the PCM stream of the Roku DVP that an AV receiver is able to interpret while my DAC is not.
Is there anyone using a stereo DAC, not an AV Receiver with a successful story?
