What does the black & white multiburst pattern do re. the single-pixel lines (vertical & horizontal)? If the B&W multi-burst is clean/normal looking with the Blu-ray player in Auto mode, the problem you see in the Chroma multiburst is unlikly to cause an issue you will be able to see with real video content.
Video processing in AVRs is dodgy and that could definitely be an issue as pointed out in another post. I've seen "Through" modes that shouldn't do anything to the video still having an effect on the video. Frankly, we are past the days when we need video processing in AVRs as most Blu-ray players and some TVs do a passable job of upconverting DVD and people are watching fewer and fewer DVDs and Standard Def TV anyway, so it wouldn't break my heart to see video processing in AVRs disappear... all we really need is on--screen displays for the selected source, volume, muts, surround mode, setup menu, etc.
