I have had my DVR for 3+ years (1225).
I replaced a Logitech GTV device with a Sony GTV device. I had some issues and with all new HDMI cables it worked fine.
About 3-4 weeks ago I started having audio issues where I would get picture and no sound. Then I started getting no picture / connection. I removed the GTV device and now sometimes my DVR will come up with no sound. If I change the audio options from 5.1 to stereo sound comes back 90% of the time, I then change it back to dolby and still have sound.
Is my DVR starting to fail? When I went through the troubleshoot options it wanted to create a ticket, but I am sinlsingle my ability to take 4-6 hours off in the day is extrextremelyited so I didn't create a ticket. Is my DVR failing and will they replace it without a tech coming out or do I need to plan on taking a day off?
setup is DVR->Sony AVR-> Sony TV (same setup for last 3 years all new hdmi cables in the chain) I don't have any issues with DVD player or Roku or SeagtSeagateamer, only DVR.

"Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool!
Stimpy: So what'll happen?
Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?"

Some AV receivers do not play nicely with the UVerse boxes, and same with known that Google TV devices do not play nicely with a lot of set top boxes for various providers.
Well the reciever played nice for 3+ years, took the GTV device out of the loop; powered everything off; disconnected all the cables and reconnected the cables. Powered on. Still have issues. My Revue worked fine and My Sony GS7 worked fine for quite awile. Thats what leads to me to beleive DVR failure unless Uverse did an update that affected HDMI hand shake or Audio..
