Hello everyone -
First off - wonderful forum, wonderful wealth of info. Cannot imagine how I made it this long without utiliizing all your advice.
Here is the setup:
Focal Dome speakers
I set this all up for my sister and her husband, who really do not know how to do this sort of stuff, and i (i thought) did. Here is the problem - when watching HD sources on TV via Tivo, the audio "cracks" for lack of a better word, like a loose cable. I replaced cables twice, I switched inputs, etc. It looks, to me, that the receiver is trying to switch source from digital to analog or something like that, but when I set it to permanently get audio from HDMI, it still does it. Picture jumps very infrequently with sound crack, but not often. This led me to think the Tivo was bad, but here is the kicker - if I record, via Tivo, a show that is cracking and jumping all over the place, and then watch it back, it doesn't do anything. No cracking, no jumping. Also, the PS3 works flawlessly - no jumping, no nothing.
Does anyone have any suggestions? The system was purchased from a franchise that has since gone under - Tweeter - so I am not sure I have any way short of submitting receiver for repair, and nothing seems to be make any sense.
I am at my wits end, and of course I have become the bad guy - your advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks - Mike
