I get everything wired together, throw the switch on the TV and discover the Onkyo's inputs are scrambled... No matter what input I take I only see the feed from the DVD input, and that's flickering and scrolling so badly it obscures the Onkyo's On-screen Display. I redid the wiring, changed inputs around and did whatever else I could to troubleshoot the problem. Everything points back at the receiver no matter what I try.
To say that I'm disappointed is a bit of an understatement. Fortunately for me there is an Onkyo authorized service center about 20 miles from me in Carol Stream. I'll be giving them a call tomorrow and hoping against hope that they're open. If I am lucky and they are open I will schedule a time to drop the receiver off for examination and repair, although I am going to push for outright replacement.
This is rather frustrating and leaves me with a level of stress that is absolutely out of proportion to the situation. Fortunately I can do other things about the house (like laundry or work in the BRoD) while I have all this angry energy to work off.
