But like Mike pointed out earlier in this thread, its hard to see how the HDMI connector is at fault here since the audio (during the horizontal blanking intervals) and video are multiplexed together on the same TMDS channel (the luminance "Y" one I think), so the video should be affected as well.

You're quite right. I stand corrected on the cable/connector assumption - will have to be a DVR or TV issue.

Removed original HDMI and used a new one and no picture or sound. It may be time to call D*

You can, but a failing hdmi port is not grounds for replacement, even with the protection plan - unless things have changes int he last 60 days, they told me to use component

This suddenly happened to me too. HR20-700 receiver directly connected to my Sony tv about 2 weeks ago. I've tried to reset the receiver several times and have powered down/up the tv without success. I've resorted to RGB and audio cables.

Its more than likely the hdmi port on the receiver or the tv...or possibly both from a power surge.I see it on a daily basis. Another possibility is voltage' the hr24 do strange things when there is stray voltage present.
