I've read a few posts about Pioneer Elite receivers adding a lag when changing channels on the satellite receiver. Presumably ,it's caused by HDMI negotiation when a channel is changed and new resolution is different. Some people are saying it's upto 5 seconds.

Is this an issue only with Pioneer Elite receivers or do all AVRs behave this way? Is there a way to resolve it on Pioneer AVRs?

I'm not entirely sure if it's specific to the AVR - I think it could be caused by any two HDMI-connected devices performing an HDCP negotiation. I noticed this when I switched my TV to a 55" LCD from my 50" DLP i.e. the display would blank out for about two seconds when switching resolutions; I ended up setting my STB to exclusively output 1080i as a work-around. The lag can definitely be annoying.

does directv hr-34 have the option to fix output to a certain resolution? and how's the upscaling on the satellite receiver? Sorry, I don't have directv yet...will get it next week...but I'd like to place an order for the AVR asap.

Also, in the AVR, did you try setting video to passthrough mode?

any time you change resolutions in the source, it breaks the handshake and it must be renegotiated... it has nothing to do with the repeater (avr), whether it is scaling/deinterlacing or not... smile.gif

the only way around this is to set a fixed resolution from the cable box...

so if I fix resolution in cable/satellite box...then there would be NO lag at all?

correct... keeping the same resolution from the source will ensure that the handshake is not broken...
