Hi all,

I've had the receiver for more than 2 years happily until recently when i started using the Monitor Out 2 since I now have a projector to hook it up with. After about > 30 mins it would start to have no video/audio issue intermittently which last about several seconds then come back up, but will keep doing that forever after. I think its acting up whenever its heated up or something. I've tried to test multiple settings to find out this is caused by the Denon.

Anyone has the same issue? I'm going to bring the receiver for warranty service but just wonder why this issue comes up.

Thanks

I just started having the exact same problem with my Denon. I'm wondering if you ever found a resolution to this issue. I know this is an old thread so this is kind of a shot in the dark, but I thought I would ask. .....Thanks.

Have you tried replacing the HDMI cable with a Monoprice Redmere cable or adding an HDMI extender/repeater if the length is > 20'?

Same here, the problem is very intermittent. In fact it has only happened a couple of times when NOT using my Bluray (DirecTV and Chromecast). Even with the Bluray it doesn't happen very often with one exception...

When I am using my P90X DVDs it seems to happen several times during each session. I can't imagine that this has to do with my jumping around causing cable connection problems because the components are in a built in wall unit that is extremely solid.

Another idea is that there is some sort of electrical disturbance causing a brief disturbance. I mention this because one of my two PC monitors in my home office will "blink" intermittently as well. I realized that whenever I rub my feet on the carpet and touch one of the walls in my office causing a "shock", my monitor consistently blinks. So the theory is that an electrical disturbance is causing this random issue to occur.

All that said, I think the most likely issue is with the HDMI cable. I'll try changing that first. I'm not familiar with Redmere cables, what's the deal with those? Are they better than standard cables?

Yes, newer "powered" cables that go to 65' without requiring an extender/repeater.

Very cool. Overkill for me however, I can get by with a 10' cable.
