Well, it's been stable today. So far only did it the once when I hooked it up, and when I turned it on yesterday. Honestly, at times I think it's related to my cable box. Before the audio actually DIED, I had a problem almost since the beginning where I wouldn't get audio from the connection to the cable, but everything else was fine. I changed the HDMI cable somewhere in that time, and it still did it. Was always forced to unplug the unit. Sometimes the HDMI audio out (in passthrough when off
) wouldn't output audio either (system wide, and unplugging it was the only fix.
)... Also had to MUTE the TV if I was using the Onkyo, because it would cause the TV speakers to make a popping noise... But yesterday the cable audio was coming in and out like it was having trouble holding a signal... Tried the CD player and radio, and audio was fine. But on no setting would the SETUP OSD show up until I unplugged it and back in.
You're right in that I shouldn't tolerate ANY problems seeing as how I just got it back, but I want to watch it over a few days just to be sure (but if there is a problem, can I replicate it?
), and not go through this again (because I swear if I have to connect this system one more time, I'm just going to settle for my TV speakers.
). The HDMI passthrough audio (and audio out to TV
) both are problem free. So something was up with the board to begin with, I just figured it was something to do with my TV being difficult... If it's a problem, I guess I'll contact the repair place I brought it to and/or Onkyo (again.
). Ugh. Almost makes me wish I had gotten a Sony after my DA3ES performed for years and years flawlessly, and only retired it to upgrade to HDMI and 7.1.
