I got the HR20 about two weeks ago, and have been having constant video-out problems. Periodically, the screen start to get dark, then goes black, then comes back on, then goes off and my TV says "No signal". I am still getting audio. If I turn off the box for a few minutes, it typically comes back and works fine for a little while.
(1) Anyone else having this problem?
(2) Any ideas what is wrong?
A few more details might help. Your subject says component video, but are you running the signal through an AV receiver or straight to the TV? I presume you've already tried swapping cables to make sure it's not just a bad connector or wire?
Yeah, get a new box. My HR20 is connected via component through my Yamaha receiver and the only time I get a "No signal" message from the TV is if the Yamaha is off. Sounds like your component outputs are going out. Likely to be a bad solder joint inside somewhere. As it heats up and cools down it's making intermittent connection and then failing. This could just be a bad solder job at the factory or it could be caused by pressure against the jack from a component cable being bent too close to the receiver and pushing on it. Anyway, sounds like a new box is in order.
