Just got sr706 - am very impressed quite blown away. I had sr 605 briefly but this is way better imo - although in all fairness, this is my first decent system. Thanks to all for all the information and adv!
I have Comcast hd dvr box that doesnt output hdmi but dvi. When I connect this dvi to my receiver's HDMI, I noticed that it displayed an error message in the top half of the TV screen - something that said the hdmi signal has been compromised please use YPbYPr to connect. Has anyone else experienced it? I tried calling Comcast but at least the guy incharge last night wasnt able to offer much help. Is this a problem that can be corrected by a setting? Is this originating at my cable box or the receiver?
Also, when I connected via component and spdif for audio (actually since I was short on cable, I used one of the regular composite cable - is that ok to do till my cables arrive or should i refrain from doing so? - the video and audio were fine except after about 5 minutes of playing, the audio would go silent and the small graphic that shows the audio input in the receiver would show blank. If I however connected via stereo analog, things would work fine. Any ideas why I am experiencing the problem with optical and how can that be corrected?
