My universal disc player is connected to the Sony TV (50W800C) via HDMI.
When I play music CD on the player without turning on the TV, the player gets periodic interruptions such that the music "skips" that part of the interruption. The problem goes away when I turn on the TV. It doesn't matter that I don't need the TV to project any video since this is just music CD.
I have also ascertained that this is nothing to do with the player because I have recently change to a new universal blue ray disc player of another brand. I have also changed HDMI cables, the later one being premium certified. I still observe the same issue whenever I play music CD without turning on the TV. I have also tried using other HDMI ports to the same effect.
Why is this, and how can I resolve this? I.e. let my disc player play music without turning on TV and without interruptions. Thanks.
