i had an issue a couple times in the last few days where there was no sound (but video) over both hdmi and optical. the first time, just cycling the power with the remote fixed it. the second time i actually had to pull the power to do a complete "reboot" of the receiver.
does this sound like the unfortunate hdmi/network chip problem? or maybe it was just a temporary glitch/lockup on the receiver? i'm hoping for the later but i am eligible for the repair if need be.
I just recently acquired tx-nr818 and had a question. When I setup "game1" I want it to only output audio (and video of course) through HDMI. However when I set it to TV speakers, all of my other sources (ie, cd) only output through the TV. How do I setup individual outputs for each of the sources. I have gone through the manual and can't seem to figure it out.
Weird, same thing started happening to me 2 days ago, so came to this thread to see if it's happened to others in the past.
Pulling the plug seems (so far) to always fix the problem. Sometimes just turning it on and off fixes it. There have been no changes to my setup in months.Everything is via HDMI and it affects any of the inputs I select.
Odd that it's happened to 3 of us all at the same time, was hoping to get 1 more year out of this receiver until the true 4k receivers were released.
edit - thanks for the link earlier in the thread about the official statement from Onkyo about this issue and recall info.

argh, it keeps doing it. not too happy about having to ship it out and trust fedex to be gentle with it
anyhow, since it seems to be happening to a lot of people, the service/recall link is at http://www.onkyousa.com/Support/service_info.php
