For whatever reason when I turn off my Onkyo SR-505 receiver it must send some kind of weird signal to my cable box because my cable box starts flashing randomly "D01" on the display and eventually freezes to the point where it will not power up or down.


I have gone through 3 cable boxes with comcast and had problems with this with all 3. Never had any issues with my old AT&T cable box, however the AT&T box was a SD box and the new Comast ones were HDTV.


My question is, is it bad to leave my receiver on 24/7 to avoid this issue? IS there anyone else who has had problems with this issue? Thanks.

Turn your cable box off first then the receiver.

Are you connected by an HDMI cable? If you are, that may be the problem...losing the Handshake. If this is the case you could go with a component cable and a digital audio cable. There is no difference between the AV quality of HD Cable over HDMI or Component/digital audio cable.

I have tried this combination as well and it still gets messed up. I can tell its the receiver because if i turn off the able box first, the "d01" does not start flashing until I turn off the receiver.


I guess I will try switching to component cable and see if that does anything.

Yes I am using HDMI, I will try component with a digital audio cable and see if that works, thanks for the suggestion
