I recently replaced my 14-year old Pioneer VSX-24TX with this receiver (a bit sad - it was a fantastic receiver!). Previously my Tivo Premiere was hooked up via HDMI directly to my Pioneer KRP-500M and with an optical audio connection to my VSX-24TX. It worked perfectly - never an issue once. With the new receiver, I have the Premiere going to the receiver via HDMI only, with the receiver connected to the TV via HDMI. I am now getting periodic audio drops when either first turning on the receiver (no sound) or performing a function on the TiVo (pausing, fast-forwarding, etc.). I read through the forums here and couldn't find anyone else experiencing this problem.
Any recommendations on what to try?
