I have the above. I have a 60" Sony XBR1, if I connect a PS3 and or HD A1 directly to it the hdmi works. If I connect them to the monoprice 5x1 hdmi switch then to the tv they work fine. However, if I try and hook up the PS3 or HD A1 directly to the hdmi on the receiver then out to the tv I get the u 70-3 error. This is using either optical or the hdmi for sound.


I had the above about a month ago and was told by Panasonic to return it and get another. I did, same thing different day. I called Panasonic again today and the csr said it has to be my cables. (he was looking at forums online while he talked with me for a solution) I have tried 4 different lengths and types of hdmi cables, all get the same result. He told me to buy one of the high priced cables or a Panasonic cable to try. I give up. Am I expecting too much from a $300 receiver? Any ideas or hints would be appreciated as I have about 4 days to rma this. I might have to try the Onkyo 604.


thanks,,,,,

yep, back went two of the switchers as they sent another one out for me to try just in case the 1st was defective in some way.


I eventually just picked the AVR I thought had the highest quality HDMI switching. $900 smakers later, I am now enjoying my system again without frustration. Seemed a bargain compared to the frustrations I went through in all honesty.
