I recently replaced my Sony receiver with the Pioneer VSX-1122-k and i noticed that the sound will cut out intermittently for 1 second. I have an HDMI cable going from my DirecTV STB to my Pioneer receiver and I have an HDMI cable going from my Pioneer receiver to my TV. I thought the issue was with DirecTV but when the sound cuts out and when I rewind it to see if it cuts out at the same part, it doesn't cut out. It seems as if the signal between the DirecTV STB and the Pioneer receiver is being interrupted. I have never had this issue with my Sony receiver and it was setup the same way. I have tried different HDMI cables and exchanged the Pioneer receiver and still have the same issue. Does anyone have this same problem or any idea what the issue could be?
