Ok, so I posted this in the AVS forums and got no response. You guys are pretty quick on the trigger so maybe one of you fine audiophiles know the answer.
Ok, so I set up the new unit last night. Wow, this thing is a beast. I have a few technical questions for you guys. The sound works great, but the video seems be doing some strange things and I don't know if it's user error, or just the way that this thing works. I have the resolution set to 1080i since I do not have a 1080p TV. I have set the HDMI out to source. Maybe this is my problem. So anyway, when I am watching directv, it's works just fine. When I change the channel from an HD channel to an SD channel, the audio comes through fine, but the picture goes blue on the and it's looking for a signal for about 8 seconds, then the picture comes back on.
Also I was using my blu ray player listening to music. When I turned on the blu ray, it searched for signal, then the screen went green. Not solid green, but green. Turned off the blu ray, turned it back off, same result. Turned off the Onkyo, turned it back on and it was fixed. This happened to me twice last night.
So is there a problem or do I need to set the HDMI out to a different setting?
Overall, I am happy with this unit. It's a beast. My speakers have never sounded better.
Update, I tried HDMI through and that did not change anything. It seems that when I have a change in the audio source, DD to something else the problem happens.
