Lockup during initial setup

Also, when I called Tech support they had me just hit the ViewTV button after the checkswitch came back and I was able to get TV. The problem was that the receiver was only getting my HD channels and it was having alot of blurring periodically....and I couldn't get closed captioning turned off...

Closed Captioning? Which 811 connection type are you using for this TV? If your using S-Video or Composite the Closed Captioning (CC) is a 608CC mode pass-thru, in which your TV is decoding the 608CC. Otherwise if you are using YPrPb or DVI then you are seeing 708CC Mode which is being delivered/decoded by the 811. In the Menu go to CC and toggle to off. If that doesn't work pull the power plug for a 10 minutes and try again. Beyond that I suggest pursuing an exchange.
Blurriness? This is unusual, if a power plug reboot doesn't correct and your Menu 6-1-5 settings are all correct and your connections are good I would pursue an exchange.
