Thank you dragonfly for your response
I was trying to figure out what made the HDMI fail, I mean is that normal?
My receiver is well cared for it is only on for short times the time to watch a movie or a couple of CDs, I don't listen to really high volumes I am mostly at -10 to -18db for movies and lower volumes for music, I rarely go to 0db or above and that is just for minutes and then down.
I am suspecting some wrong doing from my HTPC because I was trying to watch a bluray on my PC through the AVR and I was trying to adjust my second display when I lost the picture on my TV and could not get it back.
the next day I turned on my PS3 and nothing the AVR didn't know it was there, I turned on my WD HDTV, nothing also. The AVR was sending OK video through HDMI output, it was only the inputs that were busted.
now after I get my AVR repaired should I forget about hooking up my HTPC to my AVR just to be on the safe side.
Thanx and please I need your opinions.
