no, the blame is probably with cable boxes. but it's hard to pin the blame on anything precisely, it's can occur with the right combination of HDMI devices and various splitters/switchers. 90% of the complaints on forums are about cable boxes though. I will also occasionally lose sync with my HD DVD player when switching discs but that's rare...
but, more broadly, my point was that the REAL blame lies with the HDMI standard and how it has been hamstrung by all the digital copyrights protection and multiple versions.
aaronwt's setup with 10+ HDMI devices, networked through a maze of splittes/switchers, all working flawlessly, is truly an inspiration for all of us though
I mean, the 3808CI is what, 2.5 years old? The fact that he's already had over a DOZEN HD cable boxes just brings a smile to my face....
