This doesn't happen with the item in question connected directly to the tv and switching to another device and then back to this one fixes the issue temporarily. Any advice? Should I just send it back to J&R?
After reading this thread entirely I'm thinking about just getting a different receiver entirely. Either a Denon AVR-2309CI or AVR-1909. Or perhaps someone else could recommend another receiver I haven't looked at.
Interesting. I have seen this issue (at least it sounds like the exact same issue) several times, but only when watching TV: the cable box is the only component connection, the BD/HD and DVD players are HDMI. I found turning off and on the cable box made the problem go away, and had assumed the problem was with the cable box. There were other issues with that cable box: I suspect it took minor damage from a nearby lightning strike or something, which made it "flaky", for lack of a technical term...
I upgraded to a HD DVR last week, and haven't noticed the issue since, but it was sporadic anyway - usually only once a week. I will also be connecting the new DVR via HDMI once I get around to it - can't be bothered to fiddle with the system right now.
But maybe I'll leave the component connections for a while and see if it happens again with my new hardware, in which case the receiver becomes suspect.
