Alright, I'm getting a little worried. Looking for some advice.
The last two nights, I've been watching [adult swim] with my girlfriend. Midway through watching, the screen gets horizontal lines through the entire screen. They are clear, so it basically just looks like the picture is being shaped with lines through it (hard to explain). I have the cable box with component cable going to the receiver, which goes to the TV with HDMI. Shutting the TV off didn't help; I actually had to shut the receiver off and wait a minute or two before trying again. Then, the picture came back fine. I noticed that the HD channels did *NOT* have this issue, while the SD channels did when I switched back to them.
My other TV in the bedroom with no cable box was not having this issue when the big TV was. Does this sound like a receiver issue, or cable box issue?
Another thing last night happened a little later. I turned the 360 on (component cables and optical cable to receiver) and started playing a game. The sound was clear, but every couple of seconds the sound would like cut out. It seemed to just be the 360 sound, as I turned over to the cable TV programming, and it sounded fine. (I've never had an issue with my 360.) Again, is this a receiver issue?
I would be worried about overheating, but my house stays really cool (cold). Plus, this is sitting on a shelf that is not enclosed, and has nothing covering the receiver in any way. I'm just worried my receiver might be crapping out. (What's worse is that this is the *third* unit I have received from Newegg, after the first two were damaged in shipping.)
