I had a flickering issue right out of the box with this receiver back in March. I replaced the cables with better ones and it went away. Now it's back.
Here is a link to the YouTube Video that I took back when it started in March: http://youtu.be/NB1p4XwpYQ4
It happens across all of my devices and inputs that are hooked up through HDMI, though not all of the time, only when I REALLY want to watch a movie or something =)
It definitely seems to be coming from the receiver as it will continue to flicker at a blue screen if I then turn off the device (PS3 or Xbox etc).
What often happens is I will fire up my Ps3 for example, no problems. But then when I go to watch a movie, it will change input resolutions and start the flicker. Then when I go back to the menu it will continue to flicker. And then continue to flicker when I turn off the device. If I then try to watch the movie on the Xbox, the flicker will continue over there, OR will cause the Xbox to not initiate correctly because it can't get a good video connection.
Even if turn the Receiver off and then back on, the flicker continues.
Originally I was using the cheapest Monoprice HDMI cables, but now I am using the "10ft 24AWG CL2 High Speed HDMI Cable w/ Net Jacket - Black" also from Monoprice. Most places I read say that the Monoprice cables are fine over short distances so I didn't think that they were causing the problem.
Is it a setting somewhere that I'm missing? I'm fairly technical but not a big audiophile so I'm fairly new at this.
Everything goes in HDMI and out HDMI to the TV. I do leave my receiver on all of the time if that makes a difference, but then again it did it right out of the box as well.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts and input.
I really appreciate those of you who hang around these forums and answer questions for people like me who only stumble in when we have a problem =)
