I purchased a new Yamaha V-RX473 receiver last November. I currently have my Cable company DVR, Blu-Ray, and PS3 all connected to the receiver via HDMI in. I have one HDMI out from the receiver to my Panasonic TV (also new last November). Everything initially worked without problem until recently when for no obvious reason I would turn on the system and get only sound out of the Receiver. The TV would have a pink screen or say there is no signal. I understand this is most likely some issue the Receiver is having decoding the HDMI signal from my Cablebox and sending to the TV but why would this work sometimes and then suddenly fail?
I can use the same HDMI cable and go from the Cablebox to the TV and everything works fine. I have tried resetting the receiver and rebooting the Cablebox. While this actually did help solve the problem once before, it is not working now. I also replaced my old SciAtlanta DVR last week (for different reason) and upgraded to a new Samsung DVR.
Initially everything worked fine but we had a power outage today (only thing I know which could cause a problem) and then suddenly the video is not working again?! The DVR is working fine connected directly to the TV. Also, one other comment, the DVD player will not display either to the TV so clearly something is wrong with the Receiver HDMI OUT to the TV.
I appreciate any advice experts out there might have. After having this happen multiple times over the past year now, I am ready to throw out this somewhat new Yamaha receiver and try a different brand! Thanks up front!
