Hi everybody I just created an account to get help with this. I just bought a 1000w RCA home theater system, with 5.1 surround sound. I have my Xbox 360 (Original, not the S) connected to the receiver using HDMI, then using a second HDMI cable, going from my receiver to my HDTV. It works very nicely with great quality audio and video, but then about every 5 - 10 minutes or so, the audio will cut out. I will still have the video from the game, but I won't hear anything. The only way I am able to fix this is to test the tone or turn off my receiver and turn it back on. This didn't happen before I got my home theater system and I am starting to wonder if I did something wrong or if it is defective. This is getting very frustrating and I would very much appreciate any advice that you guys have.
