About 4 or 5 times a day, the video drops out and the Samsung displays port information for about 5 seconds, then the video returns. The audio continues just fine during this video drop. Rewinding the DVR to play that same video segment works just fine, so it does not appear to be a problem with the video itself.
I was not having this problem with my Onkyo receiver in exactly the same setup.
Hey guys, I bought my VSX-1021 a little over 2 weeks ago and have been pretty happy so far with everything it can do, and has done for us. The set up went pretty well, but I will agree with most everyone on here that the remote is a pain to navigate around. Very cumbersome. I have not hooked the receiver into my home network yet, as I am waiting on my wifi bridge to come in the mail. Hopefully it arrives tomorrow so I can hook it up and use my Ipad and Iphone to play around with more of the settings.
Anyway, I have had this exact same problem with video drop out since I hooked it up, my problem doesnt see to happen as frequently as others have, but all the same, its happening. I actually returned an onkyo receiver before purchasing the pioneer for this reason. It wasnt the only reason I returned the onkyo, but it was a big one, and now I seem to be having the same problem with my pioneer, although not nearly as frequently. With the onkyo, it would happen once a night during DVR playback. Now it happens once every 2-3 nights during DVR playback.
Anyone have any thoughts? I am having the cable guy come out on friday to check the DVR, as we have been having some other small problems with it. Hopefully they can figure it out.
Also, I want to thank everyone in this thread that has contributed to it, as I have learned a tremendous amount from all of you.
