A little background: Time Warner Cable - NY Capital Region HD DVR - Scientific Atlantic, Samsung and Cisci Explorer 8640 HDC (current) Sharp Aquos 720P Onkyo 7.1 w/HDMA switching Logitech Revue I started having problems when I bought and hooked up my Revue. The way I have it set up: cable line into DVR, HDMI to Revue, HDMI to channel 1 of 2 Onkyo Receiver, HDMI to TV; Optical audio from revue to Onkyo. Before having the googletv, I was using the stereo to pass through HDMI to the television between the cable box and dvd player with no issues. The problems started that the DVR would nto record properly. The recordings would come out pixelated, unwatchable, or altogether cut off before they ended. The cable box would also regularly reboot. When turned back on it would be back to channel 1 (regardless of the setting to having it go to the last channel). The signal was tuned, boosted, wires replaced, etc several times. The signal is now officially good! I have tried 2 different Samsung boxes and am now using a Cisco box. I finally tried taking the Revue out of the loop and no problems. Not sure where to start. I've tried 2 separate power circuits to rule out voltage/ground problems. I think next I may try different HDMI cables. Could it be the stereo HDMI pass through? Prior to the google tv I was always using optical audio out from the cable box. Now it takes audio from the HDMI and then I get optical audio out from the google tv. Just looking for some more ideas or if anyone else has had such a problem with cable boxes. Thanks.
