And at some point, someone may notice that a particular bug is being described in ten separate threads, so maybe it's a more general problem? Would we then create yet another thread documenting problems that affect "most" components?
The problem isn't with the PS3, it's with HK (and just about everyone else) shipping something that hasn't gone through proper testing. A problem thread is a great idea, but it doesn't make sense to make the thread specific to one component.
Which is why I said that I'll try out the Xbox 360 on the work setup. If I can recreate it, or if other people on here can recreate the issue with the Xbox 360 getting its audio clipped as well, then I will ask a mod to retitle the other thread to something more appropriate. Maybe something like "Official H/K AVR 254/354 Audio Dropout thread".
I feel like several people here are engaged in a Mexican Standoff...everyone has their fingers on the trigger and are just waiting for the right comment to start a shootout. Let's all take a step back, take a deep breath and try to get to the bottom of the issue.
For the time being, let's maintain the status quo. That is, anything related to the PS3 goes into the PS3 problem thread. I'm keeping a close eye on the possible
Xbox 360 problem (if anyone can duplicate it, let me know), and if anyone has problems with another A/V device post it in here. I check both of the threads several times a day so I'm keeping pretty current with everything.
That sound good to everyone?
