Hello all. Long time reader, finally signed up 8) My equipment: TV - Panasonic Plasma 1080i TH-50PX60 AV - Yamaha RX-V1065 SAT - Dish HD VIP-612 w/ DVR I had HD satellite installed today (yeehah) and while the installer was here activating the receivers, I quickly just used my TV's HDMI2 port and ran the sat connection there. Works great. All the rest of my HDMI components (PlayStation 3...aka Blue Ray and DVD player) go through my Yamaha receiver and then through a single HDMI output to the TV. So after everything was activated and working, installer guy down the road, I ran the Sat receiver HDMI to the AV receiver into an available HDMI port and sat down to do some drooling over my beautiful new picture.....well, no such luck. I called it a "flicker" in the post title but it is more like a video on/off, happens about every 2 seconds, screen goes black for 1/2 second (I can still hear the audio) and then the video comes back on. Things I have tried (with no change in the "flicker"): 1.) 3 different HDMI cables, all known to work good on other HD items 2.) several different HDMI inputs on the AV receiver 3.) tried both of the HDMI inputs on the TV 4.) moving HDMI cables around, away from other wires etc. I am stumped. I would blame the Satellite receiver but it does work when hooked up directly. So that would make me think it's the AV receiver. BUT all other HDMI components work fine with the Yamaha. **sigh** Any help, advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
