I recently returned for replacement a 6 month old DHC 9.9. It had failed in the video path, not sending any video on the HDMI outputs.
Now one month after installing the replacement unit, when I turned it on last night I got no audio on the main outs. I still get zones 2 & 3 audio, and main video, but no audio, either sub or my seven XLR outs. After messing around with switching inputs, menus, speaker calibration, etc., for about 15 minutes, it suddenly came on. I used it normally for over an hour, and then it stopped working as suddenly as it had started. I went to bed.
This morning again, there's no audio out.
Has anyone else ever seen failures like this? There's no heat issue. My power is filtered.
Do I have a second bad unit?
