Hello all, I have a sony str dg820 receiver and it sounds amazing.... when it works correctly. I have it setup where my xbox 360, ps3, and uverse cable box is running to it all through hdmi and then the main hdmi output to the tv. The problem I am having is sometimes... not all the time, I have issues where the tv will flash and come back on and then the receiver displays the audio signal again. My question is.. what could be causing the audio/video dropout when I am watching movies? I am using hdmi 1.3 cables but they are cheapies from ebay. Do I need to upgrade cables or what? Thanks!

It sounds like an HDMI issue, I agree. But I don't know if a different cable will help or not. If it happens with all devices, it could be a glitch in the receiver HDMI chip, a marginal signal caused by a marginal cable, or a problem with the TV.


Heat could cause HDMI to glitch maybe, but I would think it would be more than a moment. You could try swapping cables between the TV and a device.
