Of course now the actual seller (Worldwide Distributors) wants me to return it at my own expense for exchange. And the silly UPS office here closes at 9AM believe it or not!
For a couple of days my SC-1222-K worked flawlessly. I love this receiver. I bought it to replace may 3 year-old Pioneer Elite VSX-21TXH. Great receiver, just doesn't have HDMI 1.4 or use the iPad app for controller. I can't read that amber led info from 15 feet back and 7 feet high.
What I did see on my new SC-1222-K is the Red HDMI led begin to occasionally blink. Loose video momentarily then restore video, never loosing sound. A day later it lost video altogether, still had sound. Checked all the cables, switched cables, swithed brands of cables, switched sources, tried all HDMI inputs with same source, reset receiver, the only way to restore video was complete power off everything unplug receiver and wait a minute. I plugged in receiver watched the HDMI red led blink as it set-up, then go solid red. I'd turn on the other components and restored video. This method didn't last long, and eventually didn't work at all. I have RMA for return and replacement with NewEgg. This the first time I've ever got a lemon. I know this doesn't help you JDBOB, but felt compelled to share my gradual loss of video with the group. Good luck and don't give-up on this receiver.Edited by Musselhead1 - 5/8/13 at 2:44pm
