I have also such an issue with my +CUBE HD satellite receiver, whatever the SR6007 is turned on or not (pass-thru), for any TV, any cable...
[note: it is exactly the same picture I get when I force the HDMI Deep color on my TV for a source which does not support it.]
But the good news is I have found a workaround to fix that "bright image" issue.
Here is the how to [as my menus are in French, maybe my English translation will not be exactly what you have on your GUI] :
- Enter Setup/Video/Output settings: stop the video conversion (and not only the upscaling)
- close the Setup menu and check the picture : it is still bright
- enter the Setup menu again (now the background is black and no longer transparent)
- exit this Setup menu again : now the image is normal, the additional brightness is gone...
But when you turn off/on the SR6007, the problem comes back.
So you have to do the same "enter/exit setup menu" each time you power on your SR6007
Please note that the pass-thru still has the issue, no upscaling feature can be use and there is no on-screen display (volume, sound mode...).
I hope this will help...
In France, there is no direct contact between the end-user and Marantz, we need to contact our reseller who accuses the satellite receiver, not the SR6007.
I tried to describe the issue to Marantz US it order to get a firmware update that fixes it definitely (the firmware update published this week does not fix it).
I am still waiting for the answer.Edited by Fred468 - 4/1/13 at 12:56am
