When watching sattelite tv I get what sounds like artifact sounds that come through. They are very loud, best described as a "TINK". It is very annoying listening to Tink, tink, tink tink, tink...
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.
