I just hooked up my Onkyo TX-NR818 that I got on Black Friday, and it's causing the strangest issue, I hope someone can help.
When I'm using the main HDMI out on the receiver into my Panasonic th-42px80u TV, and I turn it off, it won't turn back on, the power light just keeps flashing. I tried using a different HDMI cable, I tried different HDMI inputs on the TV too, same thing.
When I use the 2nd/Sub HDMI out on the receiver this problem goes away, I can turn the TV on and off without any issues, when I switch the HDMI cable back over to the receiver's main HDMI output, same thing happens, I turn off the TV and it won't come back on, the power light just flashes. I never had this issue with the other receiver I bought to compare with the Onkyo, its a Yamaha RX-A2010. Also, never had this issue with my Denon 889 that died a few weeks ago. Any ideas?
Receiver is in direct mode for Picture Mode. The sub HDMI doesn't have the OSD menu, so it's not feasible for me to use it permanently.
