Hi guys.

So I just received my new Rogers Nextbox 3 HD PVR and I'm having a lot of issues running it through the 1018 through HDMI. I get no picture and no sound. It refuses to pass through the receiver. I called Rogers, Tech came over and spent 1 hour and couldn't figure it out. He knew there was a problem with the audio and had a solution but he never saw this one before. We tried virtually everything and nothing. From I read in earlier posts people were having problems with sound and there is a solution for that, but I'm getting no audio and no video. Tried different HDMI cables and different HDMI inputs and no luck. I'm stuck with a Nextbox 3 that will only run directly through the TV, not the 1018. Beyond frustrating. Has anyone encountered this or have some type of solution this problem. I'm baffled!

Thanks for any input it would be much appreciated.

Are you mad bro. This receiver is built solid, beautiful sound and power. Picking up this monster is another story. She weighs quite a bit. Weight means better amplifiers inside. Has for many years without any problems. Only problem I have now is my Nextbox 3 but I know it has nothing to do with the receiver but the Nextbox 3.

All,

I'm having issues with my volume control. I found out if I pinch the volume knob and bend/lift it up slightly, the volume works again. Anyone ever have an issue like that at all? Volume controls work fine through the remote controls though, so it won't be that big of an issue. Any idea how to fix it though? I don't want to have to keep bending it otherwise I know it will only get worse.

Edit: It only appears to be with HDMI 2. I tested it on TV SAT and had no issue at all.

My 1018AH has started shutting itself off while I'm watching TV. This happens regardless of the hdmi input I'm using. My three inputs are:
A CenturyLink Prism box - live TV and recordings
A Sony PS3 - Netflix and Amazon Prime
An LG Blu-Ray player - DVDs and Netflix
Watching a recorded show, whether Netflix or Prism, at some point the unit just shuts off and the little red light below "Phase Control" starts flashing. Oddly, it seems to happen at the exact same point in the show (again, regardless of the source). If I restart the tuner and the show, it gets to that point and shuts off again. Might be two minutes into the show or five. I've also noted that the shut-off seems to happen at a point in the show when there is a bright flash of light. I have had this same setup running fine for almost a year. Any help is appreciated.

Me too --- vsx-1018 suddenly powers off while using the HDMI inputs. my workaround is to connect the HDMI directly to TV, or connect analog audio to the receiver, but I sacrifice surround sound when I do this. Be nice to know if this is a fixable problem before I start looking for replacements.

Mine gets flaky like this sometimes. You might try disabling the HDMI control options in the menu as I've noticed the feature can go on the fritz.
