It seems periodically the sound/audio signal cuts out for half a second. i have the tv hooked up via digital coax. the display shows A.F.D auto (or whatever i have it set on) and when the sound cuts out the AFD AUTO and the little speaker icons flash off as well. sometimes it goes 5 minutes w/out cutting out, other times just 10 sec. go by till it does it again. i have a ps3 hooked up to the receiver as well and it does not have this problem. if i just use the built in tv speakers there is no sound cutting out. so its something with the digital signal from cable tv cutting out to the receiver. any help??
I had the same problem when I installed the new HD Comcast cable box (DCH3200), initially with my CRT through RF, then with my HDTV through HDMI. Problem solved when I replaced the box with the Comcast RNG110 I got from my local Comcast. It is a neat miniaturized box and it works extremely well on HD. There is no power switch on the box so before activation do not forget to put it on with the remote (cable, power, the green light will come on).

I dont wish to assume that when you say receiver, you mean sattelite or cable. Since you may be trying to hook this up to a surround sound reciever...
Let me also clarify, if this is the case, the receiver needs to be turned on AND the selection signal device set to TV or AUX wherever it is you've connected the TV.
Now by receiver, if you actually meant cable or sat box, then the Ext antena from that service connects to that units ANT IN.
Then from there on that unit ANT OUT to your TV SIGNAL IN.
If you want the external surround sound and have the connectors for this. Then you need to send them OUT to the Stereo/Surround receiver TV IN.
Now having said that and assuming that your TV does not have the Red and White Audio RCA connectors... Your Sat or Cable box does... You connect those to the surround sound Receiver Audio IN
Hopefully you'll find this useful.
If this has not answered the situation. Please feel free to come back and provide all components your working with. Surround reciever, Sat, cable, DVD, VCR whatever etc. etc... I'd be more than glad to help you through this
If you are watching adverts that implies a broadcast TV sound signal. What happens is that the broadcaster will switch off sound especially Dolby signals during add breaks. Therefore it could be your TV that stops sending the sound to the Marantz. So check the sound settings of you TV. It might have an auto feature that detects the signals, that could be switched to manual or just a wrong sound signal that causes the problem.
srry but the tv is not capable of sending hdmi audio through its outputs the dvd player audio must be run through rca red and white or black if you have digital audio out to the back of the receiver on its own channel
Mine did the same thing where the screen would go black for a few seconds and then the picture and sound came back. I would try (1) switch HDMI cables, (2) try a different HDMI input in the back of the receiver, (3) try different input in the back of the TV. None of these seemed to work with mine. I finally ended up running the cable box direct to the TV and only run the audio through the reciever via coax or digital. No more problems. I think the HDMI inputs in the back of the reciever have a problem continuously carrying the signal if it is the leaset bit weak.
Remove the HDMI cable (out) to the speakers from the receiver.
Connect regular speaker wire from the receiver to the speakers.
Of course, remove the (now extra) HDMI cable from the tv.
That will remove the loop.
1. Video-out to TV: You should be able to connect the receiver to the TV with any / all of the available video modes.
However, if you don't have the HDMI connection, then the Video-In on the TV would have to be switched back-n-forth between Composite / S-Video, depending on how each device is connected to the receiver. [If the TV has 'auto-sensing' Video-In then it should automatically detect the incoming signal from the receiver whether S-Video or Composite or Component.]
2. Audio-Input to receiver: As the receiver provides only two Coax-Inputs, you would have to first assign Coax-1 to DVD and Coax-2 to Cable. Then connect the coax cables accordingly; that should do the trick and allow you to hear the cable sound over coax.
If you still have a problem then check the 'Input mode' setting; leaving it on Coax-1/2 (Auto) would be the better option. This is on pg. 50 of my manual "Specifying the Digital Signal Format".
