Hey guys, just got a Denon 2112ci from Best Buy 2 days ago. All of a sudden there is a very loud popping/crackling sound when I switch channels on my Directv HR-24. It appears that it is making the sound when switching from Dolby Digital to other formats. I pulled out the receiver and moved around the cables until I isolated the sound (I think) to the HDMI cable going into the SAT input. I switched out cables thinking it was a bad cable, but it is still doing it.
I have a few weeks to return the unit to BB so I am wondering if this might be an internal problem. It is really loud and can't be good for the speakers. I haven't had the opportunity to D/L any firmware updates yet as it isn't connected to the internet yet. The sound is coming from both front speakers as far as I can tell.
