Yeah, I also need to do a bit more testing to make sure that running in the Oppo's HDMI input does in fact fix the issue (since the issue happens randomly its possibly still a problem), but its looking fairly damning.
If in fact its the AVR, then I don't understand/know why this HTPC exhibits the problem when nothing else I've attached (including the old HTPC) to this HDMI input has had a problem.
Its going to be tough connecting the HTPC directly to the TV though so I'm not sure how soon I can run that test.
