Question about Onkyo TX-SR674 Receiver
I have the following hardware:
Then using the AppleTV through HDMI I get flickering (looks like static) on the screen at random times.
It is related to the tv, modern tv's have the ability to control different devices through the infra red pick up on the tv, and pass it through the hdmi cable back to the component.
Sony call there remote link Bravia link.
Check your manual for that, If it doesn't tell you anything, then don't worry about it, if it is in the manual then see how to switch it off.

SOURCE: Power Loss Onkyo TX-SR674
Yes, some units lose their presets quickly with the power disconnected. Most lose all memory presets within 10 days. They are designed this way. You may have to get someone in to sort it out for you if you cannot do it. Or ask me for a chat session and I can talk you through it. :)

This might somewhat help. Today I went back .. I went HDMI out of the Cable box and DVD player into 2 of the TVs HDMI ins. The digital audio out from each, straight to the receiver and things are working ok. All speakers are working OK. Sound isnt as loud or crisp but unfortunately I found no other solution.

SOURCE: Suffering picture loss
If you must use HDMI, you need to run it directly to the TV from the source for video and use optical or coaxial digital for audio thru your receiver. The problem is HDMI firmware (which is not upgradeable) you have either version 1.1 or 1.2 or 1.2a. All have issues. Three years and running and HDMI still can't get it right! In techno terms it's a DHCP compliance issue (in the real world it's copyright protection) Unless your TV is larger than 50", you can run Component without any visual loss, the human eye can't detect it. Also, if your TV is older, chances are it's 1080i not 1080p, so, if you set your TV to 720P, which is the native resolution of 95% of all TV channels now, and it looks better than 1080i
(1080i = 540p)
I've been doing Home Automation now for 15 years and I've had the luxury of dealing with VGA, DVI, and now HDMI.They have all had issues. Personally I'm just as happy with Component 720P, just use good cables. Hope this helps the pain! If you need any more help, just post a comment and I can help some more.

I had the same problem with my xbox 360. I was able to fix the problem by disabling the Display Discovery setting on the xbox.

Tips for a great answer:
To do the reset you need to turn the receiver on, then on the front panel of the receiver press and hold the "VCR/DVR" button while doing that press the "STANDBY/ON" button. You will see the word "Clear" in the display screen and the receiver will go into standby mode. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR AUDIO & VIDEO ASSIGNMENTS ON THE RECEIVER PLUS YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONFIGURATIONS, SPEAKER DISTANCE AND ALL LEVEL CALIBRATION SETTINGS. YOU WILL ALSO LOSE ANY PROGRAMMED RADIO STATIONS IN MEMORY. Once the receiver goes into standby mode turn it back on and go thru the setup menu for all custom settings., Thanks, JT
