Ok, how much is "a bit"? If you are operating your unit at the 50% or more level, your unit is working as it should, as DVD and CD players output more signal than other sources...accordianman

SOURCE: Pioneer receiver shuts off
This might not be any help to someone else, but I fixed the problem by double checking all the speaker wire connections - on the speakers and behind the receiver. A couple banana plugs felt loose and I discovered that one connection on one speaker was out completely. Suppose I should have seen that sooner, but as soon as I ensured all the wires were where they were supposed to be, I encountered no more problems.
If your Pioneer receiver is shutting off on you, double check all your connections!

SOURCE: VSX-D608 Overload and shutdown
Overload is displayed when the amp draw is excessive, and can be caused by different faults.
when Overload is detected, the protection circuit will shut down the unit to prevent further damage.
The first thing to try is hard reset. Shut down the unit for about one hour to drain power completely.
This can fix minor problems that can cause overload, for example electrostatic charge accumulation on internal capacitors.
If that does not fix the problem, then you must find the fault.
Overload can be caused by shorted speakers, wrong impedance speakers, or by a contact on speakers wiring.
Check speakers connection and test different speakers with 6, or better 8 Ohms impedance.
Another test can be done by unplugging all speakers, and reconnecting and testing them one at a time, at a very low volume.
No more than two 4 Ohms speakers can be connected to the unit, or you will get overload.
If the speakers are OK, then preamp, shorted input/output connectors, main power supply or faulty output transistors can draw too much amps causing overloading.
In that case it is recommendable contacting Pioneer at the number listed on the owners manual.
