Onkyo Pro SC-885 sattelite audio drop-out fix.
I have experienced audio dropping out while watching HD sattelite or even standard sat. From what I've read it is a problem from the Onkyo.
The actual problem is with the sattelite not grounded at all. The power cord is a two prong with no ground. A perfect test is to place your hand on the top of your sattelite box and the audio stays on with no dropping. That said, you are grounding the box.
FIX: 12 or 14 guage copper wire from screw on back of sattelite body to wall outlet box. Fixed....
