Grrr. $4000 and because of a design flaw we have to pay another $80. Not cool.
I just ordered some of the Playstation glasses, maybe that'll fix it. If not I'll call Sony and the ht shop.
@Stauff: Still puzzled at why your AVR was cutting out. Did you ever confirm it actually lost power? If so, I'm not sure how an HDMI cable is going to solve your problem. In any case, if you're convinced that's the issue then several users with 35' or longer runs have had success with the Monoprice Redmere cables (not the ultra-slim but the regular Redmere). They are directional so make sure if you get one that it's installed correctly.
