Default A2 Audio Dropouts

I have had the A2 for nearly a week now and have experienced occasional audio dropouts. I currently have my audio connected via optical cable. The dropouts are infrequent (one or two per movie) and brief (fraction of a second). However, they have occurred often enough that I know they're not a fluke.

1. Is anyone who has their A2 hooked up via optical experiencing anything similar?
2. What is the most likely culprit? Is it likely a firmware issue that can be addressed in a future update or is it possible it's the cable itself?

Thanks.

Atouk,
I've had my A2 for three weeks now and have been watching HD movies on it daily. Have not noticed the audio cutting out, do you notice anything odd happening to your A/V receiver? Like maybe switching audio decoding modes when the audio cut out occurs? DTS to Dolby Digital then back?

Nope. It's not doing that. However, it's within the realm of possibility that the culprit could be the receiver. My old DVD player was hooked up via coaxial not optical, so that particular input has not gotten use before. I guess it's possible that's where the problem lies. I hope not, though. Obviously it would be more comforting if it were (a) the cable itself or (b) the player firmware.

atouk-
Haven't noticed any drop outs on my A2. I've got it connected via HDMI tomy TV and used the cables that came with the A2 to connect it to my receiver. Unfortunately, even though I own an optical cable my Panasonic receiver doesn't have a damn optical port!

I finished up The Sopranos: Season 6, Part 1 tonight & about 20 minutes into the Ep, the audio level dropped 16db & remained at that level for the rest of the episode.

At first I thought it was my optical connection, checked, all was good.
Then checked my speaker connection, all was good. Used my A/V receiver to test output to all channels.. all was good there. For some odd reason about half way through EP 10 on Disc 4, the audio seriously does a 180. The other EPs on the disc are not affected.

Anyway, I thought this was my first A2 glitch.

Wow, Krammer, that's very strange! A little bit off topic, how was the picture quality on the Sopranos discs? I'm thinking of picking it up myself.
