loosing audio/video intermittent

DTV came out in the summer due to loosing audio/video, it's come back Tried resetting receiver with remote, wouldn't reset. I had to take the card out & reinsert then it worked. My wife told me it happens often, if she leaves it alone after 2hrs it comes back on. DTV says it's the tv, Sony says no. DTV says let's upgrade. If i upgrade then it's not the tv right? Their hesistant about sending a tech out since the other tech said it's a tv issue.

Have you tried changing cabling? like go from HDMI cable to component. Or try connecting the receiver to a different TV using the same cable and see if you get the same issue.

Re: loosing audio/video intermittent

What model Receiver/DVR do you have?

How is its video/audio OUT connected to your TV?  Or is it connected to a surround receiver?  How?

HR 24-100. DTV insists it's  tv issue but will send a tech out for $49.95 yet I have the protection plan. Why should I pay that if they say it's my tv & not DTV? I'm confused.

Re: loosing audio/video intermittent

Sounds like you have an "HDMI handshake" issue.   You might try using Component Video cables (red, blue, green RCA cables) instead of HDMI as a test.  Also, check Sony's web site to see if there's a firmware update for your TV.   Also check the relevant thread for your Sony HDTV at http://www.avsforum.com
