WTF!!!! I cant take it anymore. I just searched the forum and I am seeing posts back to 2010 about the issue. I lived with it since i got my HR-24 in late 2010 because i always thought it was my POS Onkyo TX-SR606 surround receiver. I upgraded to a Yamaha RX-A820 and what do you know......still a problem. There is no rhyme or reason. live, recorded, no particular frequency. 2 freaking years with the smae problem? WOW! I have been a Direct customer for 13 years, i think i deserve a little better than this. is this still an issue for the HR-24 for most? Is it an issue for the HR34? I want to upgrade to an HR-34, but not interested if it also suffers from the issue.
