Default loss of sound while watching movie?

HI group,

I have a question. I own a Toshiba HD-A2 HD DVD player and a new Sony BDP-300 Blue Ray player. I am using them both with a Samsung 32" HDTV. During about 1 of every 4 movies, the sound just goes silent. Basically, the movie is playing fine and then the sound just disappears. I press the input button on my remote and it cycles back to the HDMI input and the sound is back again. It has never gone out more than one time during a movie.

Does anyone know what is causing this? I doubt it is either player as it happens about the same amount of times with each one. Could it be the HDMI syncing to the TV?

Any ideas?

You did not mention on how you have your audio hooked up. HDMI staright into tv ? HDMI into reciever ? Coax or optical ?

Does it happen in the same place each time on the movie(s) where audio drops out ?

THe HDMI connection is straight from each player to the TV. Also, it happens randonomly (about 1 time every 4 to 5 movies) and never at the same spot. Also, it has never has happened twice during a movie. Lastly, I can play the same movie twice and it might happen the first time I play it but not the second time. It is totally random and not that often.
