My receiver, for some unknown reason, is really glitching with HDMI right now. I turned it on tonight to watch directv...no picture. Ok, so I made sure the input was correct and that the directv would play if connected directly to the tv, which it did. I connected a new HDMI cable from the receiver to the tv, and that did nothing. As such, I became concerned and began to try other sources. Blu ray didn't work, neither did ps3, comcast, or xbox.
At this point, I'm really concerned. The tv won't even display the settings menu, and when it does intermittently it becomes all red and noisy. The same thing happens with the second HDMI out and with every input on my tv (pio pro-151FD). it also won't playback audio, except when I manually start the MCACC. And it won't pass through either video or audio when I set the receiver to passthrough. I checked all of my settings, made sure HDMI-cec was off on both the receiver and the tv. I tried different HDMI cables, different inputs on the receiver, different outputs on the receiver, and different inputs on the tv. Nothing works, and I'm mad. Is there anything I should do before a complete factory reset, and, if that fails, a replacement or repair. At this point, however, if this turns out to be defective, I might not replace it with the same model because I already replaced my first SC-57 due to a faulty speaker terminal. Incidentally, my iPad is no longer able to connect to my receiver through the internet when the receiver is in standby; however, that should be a settings issue.
What is dead can never die. Long live my 151!
