Here are the basics. Happens on HD (ESPN right now), Component Video, 480-720-1080 doesn't matter (happens on all), Live TV (the game)

Every time the scene cuts to another (ie: game to commercial, game to score or graphic, cutting from scene to scene on movie trailer) I lose Video Signal to the TV momentarily (screen goes quickly to No Signal... then back).

Any ideas? Very annoying.

Also, incase it might be related. The HR20 has no effect on the picture when pressing video format... Crop, Pillar, Stretch all look the same, no change.

???

No clue what could be causing this, especially if you're using component. Maybe this a is rare instance where you should try HDMI instead, if it's available on your TV ofcourse.

What happens if you have the program playing while you're in the guide?
Here's some more detail on a few more situations where the same thing is happening:

1. Watch "standard-Def" local programming (channel 2 for example), if the HD20 is set in 480p then the situation is stable, but the picture quality so-so. If the HD20 is put into any 720 or 1080 setting this happens (momentary loss of video signal during all scene cuts, sometimes very erratic depending on the editing style).

2. If the same program above is tuned and go to the guide (ie: SD programming is showing in small window) it remains stable.

So, to this point it seems maybe my TV (model MU-60PZ95V) or AV receiver (Panasonic SA-XR45) is not dealing well with some sort of up-conversion of the signal??

3. If it were that simple... the situation originally described also happens. HD programming (ESPNHD) for example, picture is awesome in 1080 or 720, but the same thing is prone to happen, losses of signal during "hard" scene changes.

Any further advice?
Thanks

Try bypassing the AV receiving and going directly to the TV. If the problem clears up, you've found your culprit. If it doesn't, you've at least narrowed it down to 2 out of the 3 components.
