My HTR-5730 has recently started shutting itself off when the sound jumps quickly (ex: an explosion or thunder clap during a movie, or cranking up the volume to listen to some AC/DC). It then gives me a check speaker wire message, but everything seems to be connected fine. This started happening after connecting my PS3. Is one of my speakers toast or is it the receiver or am I missing something?

Re: my stereo shuts off when the sound jumps quickly
You might try connecting only one speaker at a time and see if you can
locate a bad speaker OR bad output channel that way. If you find
that you connect one speaker and the problem occurs then try another
working speaker and see if it still does it. If it does, then you
have an output problem. Good luck.

There are two causes for this. One that there is a fault on the amp that is causing an overload circuit to trip and shut itself down. Or the settings of your speakers levels are wrong. So you are turning it up to hear the quiet parts of movies and therefore when louder sections come along your are driving the amp too much. Some DVD discs that have THX on them have a sound set up on them. If you have one access the THX sound menu on the disc and adjust your speakers to produce the correct levels. If it does happen after that there's a fault. By the way most of the George Lucas films (Star Wars) will have THX on them.

How is the audio connected to the TV (be specific)?
Keep in mind that a TV is not generally an audio source as its programming always comes from something higher up the audio food chain than itself. Get the audio to your receiver from whatever THAT is, not the TV.
