My H25-500's AV cable must have gone bad because no matter how many times I tried reseating it and unplugging/replugging it, I still get horizontal lines in the picture. I gave up and moved it to another room. There were other reasons to move the receiver but in any case the picture if fine on this TV from the H25 using HDMI. A new HR24-500 is using a standard component cable with the TV that the H25-500 was using and the picture is flawless. The AV cable for the H25-500 is not well designed. I think I have the 2nd version of it.
