Why don't you simply call Yamaha tech support?

I have now had the RX-V671 for 5 days. Tonight, the video started blinking on and off. The blinking was erratic and more off than on. I discovered that if I started on a 5.1 program with no sound the video did not blink. If I switched to a 2 channel program the sound came on and the blinking started.
The blinking is ocurring across all components BD, WDTV, and cable which tends to rule out a bad cable box. My setup is all input devices go into the RX-V671 via HDMI 1.4. Sound is output directly to my speakers. Video is routed to the TV through video out via HDMI 1.4. I accepted an firmware update when I first set up the unit. I am not using HDMI control.
I have found nothing in the manual that addresses either the sound ov video problems. In most cases my settings for the unit are the default values. Anyone have any thougts?
