I love the crisp sharp sound my yamaha delivers. I have been out of the game for a few years and have to buy a new amp. Is there anything else out there for around 5-600.that is better. Denon seems to have alot of repair issues. Help me out, any opinion will help.
I have a Yamaha RXV-596 receiver. I seem to have random audio dropouts while playing a dvd. I have tried different players and it seems to drop out about 10 times a movie or so.
I also have a scientific Atlanta HD-DVR box the 8300 which does the same thing sometimes. I do notice on the cable box that it switched between Doly Digital and Pro logic which to me sounded like a broadcast issue.
The kicker is my Xbox is hooked up to Dolby Digital and works fine.
My Tv has settings for 580P or 1080i, if you leave it on 1080i everything gets turned into that or atleast has a chip to reproduce the image to that. Halo 2 and Madden 2005 are 480P - this is how I set it up.
Widescreen on 1080i and I stretch the picture to get rid of the bars. Looks and sounds nasty, but I want to make sure I have it straight.
Should I set it to 480P in the xbox though?
