I just bought an RX-A3020 open box with all accessories from BB for $1200, including tax. Could not pass up that deal! I am so far rather happy with the receiver except for one thing. When I hook up the DirecTV box , using HDMI to the 3020, I get video and audio drop outs. Sometimes, the video drops out and you can still hear the sound, other times vise - versa. When I change settings such as ARC on or off, HDMI control on or off, or switch HDMI inputs on the 3020 from AV1, AV2, etc. , it makes no difference. Even the pass - through feature has the same problem. My Pioneer Elite blue ray player and the Sony PS3 work perfectly regardless of which HDMI port I use. When the DirecTV box is hooked directly to the TV, no problem. I only have this problem when going through the 3020. I have tried the settings (such as they are) on the sat box to no avail.
Thanks in advance,
