I found this through google and became a member to tell my story.
I bought a SR5004 and just under a year I got a POD. I sent it back to Marantz and got the power supply "fix" I recieved it back and 4 mins into the first movie I got another POD. I took it back again and they sent it back saying that nothing was wrong and it was a problem in my set up
My 10 year old Integra reciever has no problem being run hard in the same set up. I checked over everything and was good to go. I was watching tv at low volume a few days later and the picture started flashing then the room started to fill with that wonderfull burning electronic smell from the reciever. I unplugged the unit and have taken it back to the store. They have been great and are as mad as me. They replaced my unit and said no more of this, and are dealing with Marantz for resolution.
So thats the cliff notes of my story.
