I have a 1713 and love it, but have had a few issues. Are these things I should worry about I.e. signs of bigger issues:
1. When I turn on my Xbox via hdmi it the first 5 seconds of image has horizontal bands of black through the image, then it blinks out and comes on perfect.
2. Yesterday the right front speaker started pulsing very slow, like around 1 hz I pulled the screen off and watched. It was only that speaker. Lowering the volume dd nothing. I turned off the AVR and turned it back on and things were fine.
3. I had it get stuck on DVD and no buttons on the front panel, remote, or via wifi would get it to switch inputs. Turning it off did nothing. I had to physically unplug it and plug it back in to make it work again.
Are these normal annoyances? My last reciever was pre-hdmi and networking. It just worked.
Well I sent my receiver back for warranty, after going through the SRA process. I just got an email stating they found no issues and are sending the unit back. I am not real pleased with this outcome. I have already tried multiple speakers, cables, sources, updated firmware, micro-processor resets etc. I am fully expecting my issues to still be present. The speaker pulsing issue is intermittent so i am not sure how they "test" for that.
