time revive the dead...
For the longest time, I've thought my Dish Network Dish had been bumped and was giving me weird blackouts.
Well, I just had my DVR replaced by them because of a bad input, and they said while checking things out that my signal was ok. They said I might get the drops outs because of dust on the hdmi cables. I didn't buy it...but figured I'd look into things later.
Well, today i was thinking....i've seen the problem in dvr recordings. if the problem repeats in the same spot, and I can rewind/fast forward and always see it... I can assume it's signal loss... if it ain't there... then it's a connection or something else.
Well... as you've guessed it didn't always pop in the same place in a recording.
Then I did a quick search and ended up here.
I only see my problem with the dvr run into the Onkyo... dvd doesn't do it, and my htpc only uses audio in the receiver...video is direct to tv.
I get video blackouts for what seems like 1 sec or less, then the signal comes back.
whoops, forgot to say, also not seeing on screen setup anymore
Trying to figure out when I got this thing, and where, and if there's any hope in hell of warranty.
