Video Drop Outs. I experience random video drop outs when watching cable tv. Video will go to black for about 1 sec, then return. Audio sometimes drops out, sometimes not- but there is a brief hiccup. Problem is random. Several times in an hour, then nothing for several hours or days. From looking at the thread history it seems that others have experienced the same problem, but no consensus cause or cure....
My setup is Comcast cable --> Comcast/Xfinity box--> HDMI to SR7009 --> HDMI to Samsung LCD The receiver is set up to manage all video sources.
The first troubleshooting step to perform would be a "soft reset" which simply involves powering off the AVR, pulling the power cord and HDMI cable connecting the AVR to the TV for 10 minutes. Doing this involves no loss of settings.No I haven't even thought of that. Good idea. Fortunately there's nothing to lose as I haven't calibrated or done anything since I moved.
But then I have no idea how to reset it.
Thank u so much for the question/suggestion.
I have a Marantz SR7009. I am trying an SACD with an Oppo BDP-103D. It has Stereo and 5.0 DSD. I have bass management on, not PureDirect mode, because it's an organ SACD, so I need the subwoofer.Thanks JD. It turned out to be that the Oppo only supports DSD over HDMI on its second output. Hooked up another cable to the HDMI CD input and there it is.
I'm impressed with this receiver so far (after 2 days). All the wrinkles I've run into so far turned out to be due to the connected equipment and I've managed to resolve. Even the widely panned remote app is better than I expected.
Sorry I guess this is more of an Oppo question... but if anyone knows what's up I won't mind being told I started the question in here because I thought DSD streaming was having issues with pops/squeaks. Turned out it was the recording itself, it happened on all formats on the SACD (DSD and PCM, 2.0 and 5.0)I have a Marantz SR7009. I am trying an SACD with an Oppo BDP-103D. It has Stereo and 5.0 DSD.

I quoted the above because I am using HDMI 1, and the Marantz confirms it is receiving DSD. Maybe the 103D is different from the 103/105 in that respect? Even the Oppo site says I have to use HDMI2.
But the Marantz says "DSD" as the audio source. If I set it to direct, it even says "DSD Direct". So I figure I must be getting it over HDMI 1...??
I also had a question on this comment. How does one know it is limited to 88.2 kHz? Where in the SR7009 displays (on screen or front of unit) does it show the rate of DSD being received?thank you for your reply it has worked in HDMI 2 but only limited to 88.2khz not full data of 2.8! if it matters i am running only 1 HDMI cable for both video and audio.
Marantz' hardware has essentially same design as Denon's, so they have exactly the same heating problems. Maybe people just don't bother writing about it. Either they need lots of open space (several inches on all sides) or they need external fans.Already posted in Denon thread, but unfortunately still cannot PM
I have a question since I saw you had Denon 4520 at some point, then moved on to Marantz SR7009 and so on.
I'm looking at used AVRs, can get these 2 at the same price. Primary focus is stereo listening, with 5.1 for movies. Not sure I would in the future go for Atmos (it's not a dedicated HT room but a living room).
What would you recommend? My concern is all the stuff I read about heating issues on Denon, while Marantz does not seem to be having any (as I don't plan on replacing the unit any time soon, maybe Marantz would be a better choice reliability-wise)?
Thanks in advance for any comment!
