I have an HD PVR (Explorer 8300) and have connected to my Samsung TV using HDMI cable. My question is can I connect my SONY STR DE605 receiver or do I need a new one?

Depending on your tv output, you shpuld be able to hook your TV to receiver via audio output. Running your video components through your receiver will not give you the best performance anyway. Run your HD DVR to TV the way you have it then, if it's possible to run audio out from TV, via, RCA, digital optical, etc., to your receiver. The sound will be transfered through the TV. You may also be able to utilize component out from your HD DVR and a separate audio cable.

Suddenly, for the first time in all the years I've had this Sony receiver, a messege pops up on the front of the receiver saying "protector". What is this??? I have NO idea and don't know what to do. ...

Internal problem probably needs output transistors and a dual emmiter resistor (could a couple other parts too). Parts and labor should be about $100 to $125.

My sony str de605 am/fm reciever flashes "Protector", is there something I need to replace internally?

Hiya, not sure if i remember correctly but try reset it. First disconnect the speakers (make sure error isnt there)
When it is ON, press and hold the power button for about 4 seconds. It should then ask reset, clear or something and press enter. When its finished, try it again. If ok, reconnect speakers. If it happens with speakers, there is a problem. If it doesnt work and goes straight back to protect, then there is an internal fault (if i have the reset procedure correct)

Best of luck

Sony str-DE435 Flash Protector

this is not a reset problem, you have a defective audio output, is either the outputs transistors or the drivers IC's ( integrated circuit) and sometimes if you are lucky is just loose connections on the drivers IC;s.
good luck
