I am experiencing audio pops/bombs when listening to DTS HD MA tracks from Blu Rays playing on my PS3. Most recently I heard it on Master and Commander. It just happened once during the movie, but when it happened, I rewound a few seconds to see if it would happen again, and it did, right in the same spot. I know I've heard it a couple of times before, but I couldn't tell you which movies, or even that they were definitely DTS HD MA tracks. I'm guessing they were though. It seems this "DTS bomb" thing is a know issue that there is a firmware fix for. However, I can't seem to find any official route for downloading the firmware fix from the Onkyo website. There is no firmware update listed for the TX-SR705.
The update method I've read about involves downloading a WAV file, burning it to a CD, and playing that CD through the optical input on the receiver. Sounds a bit convoluted! I don't even have an optical cable, so it would mean buying one of those.
Has anybody done this? How do I get the download? Does the fix work? How much danger is there of these bombs damaging my B&W 685 theatre package speakers?
Thanks for any help!
