Well, after getting the DTR-9.9 off of eBay, I now realize that the component to HDMI appears to be shot. The picture works, but has what appears to be a high frequency ringing in the picture, showing up as jitters or tears in the picture. So bad that the video is unusable. From my electronic days (many years ago!) it appears to be a capacitor problem or something like that.
Has anyone seen this issue with the DTR-9.9? It is second hand, so no warranty.
I hooked up my second set of surround speakers today, I can hear them in the calibration set up page. So I notice that I am not getting 7.1 only 5.1. Is there someplace or setting to get a 5.1 signal to play at 7.1?
