A neighbor asked me for help after he had recently upgraded his cable box from SA HD (Non-DVR) to a Cisco HD (with DVR). He is on Comcast in Houston area. TV- Sony KDL50-XBR2 LCD, AVR - Denon 4306CI, Comcast DVR - Cisco RNG200. Everything works for 6-8 minutes, then picture drops out - sound through receiver OK. If I power DVR on and off, no change. Switch inputs or go to Standby on Denon, then back on and back to Cable input - no change. If I switch input on TV to Ant, then back to HDMI - I get a message on the TV from the Cisco DVR indicating that the TV is not HDCP compliant, and a picture of the DVR back panel stating that I should not use HDMI, use component instead. I have never seen this on maybe 30 -40 different installations with the SA 8300HD. I also have 2 of the SA 8300's at my house and have never seen this on my similar vintage Sony TV (not an XBR LCD, but from about the same mfg. year.
Anyone seen this?
