It appears the HDMI board in my Integra DTR 5.9 has gone out. This morning it simply wouldnt work. Here is what I did in case I missed something
1. Re-checked ALL hdmi cables to ensure they were seated
2. Unplugged and re-plugged them just in case
3. Tried all HDMI sources independently one by one to ensure one port wasnt bad
4. Plugged the source directly to the TV - got picture but no sound (of course)
5. Factory reset on unit
6. did I miss something?
The unit is a bit warm above the HDMI board, but nothing I would be very worried about personally. Looking at it I cant see anything leaking cap wise or whatever.
I know the HDMI is bad because the unit still turns on, and for right now I have HDMI to the TV 2 of my sources (Xbox 360, DVR) and optical going from my TV to the Integra, and I have sound. I simply cant get picture.
I dont have enough cables to test if component is working, or s-video.
So my question is has anyone replaced their HDMI board when out of warranty and if so what was the associated cost? This HDMI board has already had the caps replaced as it was one of the fated units that had the cheap caps like the Onkyo TX-SRX06 models.
Also any other suggestions to try would be appreciated.
P.S. part of me wants to be able to fix it (as its hopefully going to be cheap), but part of my wants to drop on a new Pioneer SC model, but I know we dont have the cash. If its super expensive I may end up with a Onkyo 709 which has better EQ but I really want to push for the SC-68, or one of the last years models so I can run my LSi center and surrounds off the unit, and my LSi 15's off a dedicated amp.
Anyway cost to replace the HDMI board? More expensive than a Accessories4less 709? Stick to my guns with how it is now and fight for the SC model?
Thoughts from the masses welcomed
