On the other hand, my unit started exhibiting it's own bizarre behavior yesterday. In the morning, I turned on my TiVo Premiere, which is connected to HDMI input 1. The 1572 turned on automatically. I wasn't expecting this but assumed that one of it's features was to turn on in response to a signal. Later that day, I did the same thing and the Rotel flickered for a while, on and off and making a lot of clicking noises. Then it came on. Then later still I again turned the TiVo on while the Rotel was in standby mode and the 1572 struggled mightily, clicking and flickering and finally going silent but working as an HDMI pass through without turning on. Then today the unit stopped responding to the remote. That latter problem was fixed not by changing batteries, which I tried, but by turning the rocker switch off in the back, waiting and then turning it back on. But when it no longer responds to the TiVo being turned on AND flickers quite dramatically when turning being turned on, displaying a jumbled screen. i don't think that behavior was there before.
Has anyone else experienced this? Do I have a lemon? Are there many varieties of lemon out there for this thing? Still wondering if this thing needs to go back, despite liking it.
