When we watch a DVD, the picture shows wavy lines sporadically.
Also when the DVD gets 1/2 thru, it stops/locks and restarts from the beginning.
Is it worth taking this to a repair shop or should I buy a new receiver?
Better question is...can I purchase the receiver by itself?

Do you have anything to test it in 1080i? Does it do it on all connections or just one? I had a similar problem with my TV that turned out to be a bad input board. Mine would only display 1080i through the Component connections. All others would show pink and green wavy lines. It cost me around 500 to fix it. Unplug the TV. Remove the back cover for the TV. Using a NON-metal object, or gloves, wiggle the input board (that has all the video connections on it) slowly back and forth and see if the problem comes and goes. You will have to have someone watching for you. If something is loose on that board, the problem should show itself. Narrowing down the problem will probably save you money on repair bills.
you can get a standard RF (cable) male connector to AV (the yellow,white and red colored) adapter at radio shack for a few bucks...if it is a internal connection, that will bypass it...you will just be watching cable on AV-1 or wherever you plug it in
Are the wavy lines horizontal or vertical? If they are horizontal and up near the top of the screen it could be 60HZ interference from a power cord running over the cable from the DVD player to the TV. There could also an internal breakdown of the shielding by the power supply of the DVD player. If the lines are vertical it is likely the cable or maybe the input jack on the TV. Could be a number of things.
