Not knowing the specific cabling you use and the pathing...

Everything is digital. You're probably experiencing data dropouts.

Is the problem both audible and visual? THAT would point to data loss where the video and audio coexist - upstream of the TV and audio systems. If it just the audio medium, analyze its physical sugnal path and see where you can isolate or eliminate cabling and hardware. The ONKYO has indicators that would blink upon digital signal loss. Trace it back from there.*

* I always run the BEST video from each source directly to the TV and the BEST audio directly to the electronics. Unnecessary interconnects and hops are expensive and failure prone. Optical cable should be routed with lazy curves to avoid light loss and data dropouts.

In many systems with a DVR ALL viewing is from the DVR rather than LIVE.

Observe whether a given glitch is observable and repeatable on your DVR. If it IS, the transmission was bad at that moment and the result was captured. From this point there is no way to differentiate between bad data IN or bad data from the Hard Drive, unless you can bypass the DVR entirely or watch it truly LIVE.

If you have support for the DVR, the vendor CAN log into it and examine its error log data.

My ocean freezer is not freezing

Really would like to have more info but lets start with a few things. Is there power to the unit? If yes, does the unit making any sound? you should here the compressor running. When a compressor fails it will take out the overload switch. Unplug the unit for a half a hour then plug it back in. If you here a sound that is best described as a metal TINK. that is the overload kicking out and you have a issue with the compressor, The other possibility is the thermostat could be bad and not calling for the compressor to come on. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

Thanks for your reply for my Toshiba 65H80 question...."as watching TV (Bears/Packers) and saw on the screen what I can only describe as a small "explosion"......or flash of light and then...

Hi. I believe you have been given some erroneous information. The items that are faulty are actually the capacitors. They are designed to last about 30 years if they are of good quality, however from 1998 until around June of 2005 Taiwan was flooding the market with cheap low quality capacitors, whiah are lasting about 1/3 as long. Thes are unfortunately not cheap to replace, as they are called low ESR capacitors. They can, counting the cost to have them replaced, be more expense than buying a brand new TV. If you really love your tv and just don't wish to depart with it yet, you can take it to Best Buy or Fry's, they both have specially trained techs to repair this exact situation.

It looks like you ignored lamp replacement in your TV. It have to be replaced every 2.5 years of average use. It's like oil change in a car. Regular scheduled service.
You can read info about lamp replacement in your TV owner's manual, buy lamp on-line and replace it by yourself to save some money.

Audio fluctuation with volume

It is common theese days to have volume fluxuation while watching TV when viewing a HD show and going to a commercial break it gets ungodly loud, that's from digital to analog variance. However what you describe and the way you describe it leads me to believe its a chip in the receiver. The only way to really know for sure would be to hook up a DVD to your TV input and play a long movie " the godfather" or something like that which is a three hour or so movie and listen for the issue to occur. If it does, you know your receiver needs to be serviced. If it doesn't, swap your cable box or DSS with another one if possible and test again. It will take some time, but it won't cost you anything! Hope this helps. If you still have issues with it, send a response and we can try other things as well.

There are colour flashes when i watch black and white films on my infocus projector.Usaualy if i look a way from the screen for a second or as if i'm blinking

By any chance is your source PAL?
What you are describing is caused by a slower frame rate ie. PAL accompanied by the natural persistence of the human eye. If you reduce the brightness level or turn a light on you will be able to reduce these artifacts.

You would hate watching TV in Europe ;)

We have purchased a 2nd hand "ROWA" television, ,model number "RTM686" which has stereo sound, when watching any program on most channels backgrond sound and music keeps fading in...

In the end we sorted the problem ourselves, although the stereo sound now does not work at all,
we merely removed the video & audio leads from the rear of the set ( stereo sound) and moved them to the side which only emits a mono signal. although the sound is now only of the quality of a normal tv, we can at least enjoy watching a larger screen. An update in the near future to a large flat screen is on the cards.
